“Nice evening meal”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We enjoyed a pleasant evening meal here. Slightly over priced we thought, and the dining room decor was a little dated, but overall very good. The bar atmosphere was cosy & busy and there was a good selection of real ales.

“Friendly pub with fantastic food”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

Attracted to visit the Sun Inn as they advertised 'live music' on the Friday night. So glad we did!!
Fantastic evening - pub a good mix of locals and visitors.
Everybody, including the staff, were very friendly.
We returned the following evening for a meal in the restaurant and we were not disappointed - the pork belly was lovely and my friend had the fish special which she said was divine.
Would certainly return.

“Very Friendly pub”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We popped in her for a quick drink whilst our lodge was being prepared. The pub is dog friently, but we were a bit wary as our dog is quiet nervous around lots of people.There was a large party in the pub and lots of food being served, I was worried that our dog may stick his nose in someone's dinner. The ladies behind the bar encouraged us to bring the dog in, with a few ladies coming over to fuss him, and to check he was ok and gave him a biscuit. They made us feel at home and very welcome, will visit again when next in the area.
