Reviewed 17 February 2014

We come to this warm, welcoming pub as often as we can. The atmosphere, with the cosy log fires , the great selection of cider( we are in love with the Harry Sparrow) and the fantastic food that is a little different , to the norm, but who wants the norm??
Well done mr owner of the Sun, you make us very happy. Just wish we lived nearer, we would love you to be our local.

Wonderful food,innovative and well presented. No mint sauce for my friends lamb, the conjoured up a kind of basil liquid pesto.
The interior desperately needs a face lift. It looks tired and not clean. I am sure it is clean but doesn't look it,also very dark. Could do with some mirrors?

We have stayed here a few times and decided to go back between Xmas and NY on special offer with dinner included for 2 nights. As always staff were superb and we had some fabulous food. the service is great we left that we always got served quickly at the bar as they knew we were staying there. Dinner on both nights was superb and the breakfasts are absolutely lovely with loads of choice. On the 2nd day we had a bar board lunch which was lovely sitting by the fire with some real ale. The choice of drinks is fab and such a great location. We stayed in Butchers at the back which is very quiet and quite a new room with modern shower etc. i pod docking station and kettle etc. We will keep returning to this place as just love it. Thanks again to all the great staff that work there.

Room Tip: Buthchers is in the new wing at the back so you can't hear the church bell ringing as loudly eve...

I have been coming to The Sun for years after living locally, even after moving away I still love coming back. Have been with family, friends and my partner. This place is a perfect cosy country pub, superb to go to after a country walk around Dedham. We always have an amazing time tucking into some wholesome food, next to the warm fire and drinking great wine. Perfect.

We like to go to the Sun for a mid-week dinner. It is very relaxed dining and great when the fire is roaring. The food is quite simple, but always tasty. It's a buzzy place to be and a great place for a quick drink after a walk around Dedham.

Have been here a few times for dinner and lunch so thought we would try one of their wine tasting events. Food as always very good, with a creative flair setting it is set aside from the usual pub / restaurant fair. And of course we were introduced to some interesting new wines! Will certainly go again.
