Description: The Old Sun Inn is a 17th-century converted coaching inn with stone floor and oak panelling. The pub is the second oldest building in Buxton, with a vintage styled interior, working fireplace and beautiful outdoor drinking area. Situated in the beautiful and famous spa town of Buxton, the Old Sun is set back from the main road and is a traditional coaching inn with many original features. With real oak and stone floors, panelled walls and rustic furniture this is an ideal place to relax and unwind. The pub is full of segregated but not enclosed areas, probably best described as full of "nooks and crannies". We serve locally sourced, homemade food and prides itself on friendly service and a warm welcome • beers/wine • real ale • bottled beers • cask ales • child friendly • country pubs • dog friendly • draught beer • family pubs • function rooms & banqueting • home cooked food • internet access • restaurants • sunday lunches • traditional lunches • wheelchair accessible • outdoor seating area • open fire • quiz night • dog friendly • live music • locally sourced food

“Simple and welcoming”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

This is more a pub with food than anything else, but well worth a visit. We went two nights in a row, 9 and 10 december, and had bar food on second night. Nothing fancy, just good simple food, served well and very reasonably priced.

Good selection of real ales, friendly staff, and lots of nooks and crannies to relax in.

Well worth seeking out if you're after something simple.
