Our first trip out to St Nicholas-at Wade - and will definitely be visiting again for the Sun Inn's superb Sunday Roast. All the staff were very friendly and helpful , the food was , without doubt , beautifully cooked , extremely good value for money and we would have to say - the best roast we have had in our Sunday pursuit of the perfect roast dinner !
Would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Friendly welcome and cheerful, thoughtful service throughout. 2 great beers on draught: Tribute and a seasonal brew - both well-kept and delicious. No open fire, sadly, even though this was (a rather quiet) lunchtime 5 days before xmas, so I kept my overcoat on until I felt a bit warmer. Food quality and quantity were excellent. We had 1 starter of mussels and another of garlic mushrooms. One main was cod and chips with a truly fresh and varied salad and t'other was Salmon with new potatoes, carrot, cauliflower and broccoli - so no skimping on the veg - if only all pubs could be as committed. The food was piping hot so it's a pity the plates were cold - surprising too since there was a real live chef in the kitchen. Prices were good and we left full and contented. Do visit: The Sun has reverted to being a nice place once again.

We visited in December with the intention of eating at The Sun. There were lots of signs outside promoting their new menu and food availability. The lady serving at the bar was very polite and friendly, but there were only one or two other customers and we did feel rather uncomfortable. When we asked for a menu we were told that no food was being served that evening because they 'had been very busy at lunchtime' and were asked 'haven't you been across the road?' (to The Bell). We are regulars at The Bell and had decided to try The Sun as an alternative, but I'm afraid that based on this experience we won't be visiting again.

Having not visited the Pub for a long time, we thought that we might give it a try. (group of 4) Well we were glad we did! We had a warm welcome by Cecelia, service with a smile, at the bar, and was served by Sue. We had a lovely Sunday roast, served with all fresh veg, with a choice of meats. Sue, thank you for the extra gravy! the sweets were nice as well. The Pub had a great atmosphere, backed up by friendly and helpful staff.
We are looking forward to our return, which I know, will be in the near future.
Thank you to you all!

I have been back twice since my last review. Once for a Sunday roast (lovely) and once for steak and ale pie and chips (also lovely). A member of our party was recovering from an operation and wanted a very light meal. The Landlady spent a long time suggesting dishes and finding out what he would like and got the chef to cook him something off the menu specially. Really kind and helpful.

This pub has had a bit of a chequered history over the last couple of years but the new owners are really making progress and the place is starting to fill up again. One of my favourite places to eat!
