We visited Ye Old Sun Inn as a party of 7 to celebrate a family birthday and we're extremely pleased with our choice. The menu isn't huge, with 6 or 7 choices for each course, but there was enough choice to please everyone. The roast beef was exceptional, the pork came with crispy crackling and the lamb rump was tender... More

Excellent pub/restaurant, nice menus and excellent quality. The service was nice and pleasant. Perhaps should be 5 star rather than 4 but I felt that desert menu was a bit limited. Home made chocolates were excellent though.

Just returned from dinner, the food was excellent right from the bread offered at the table to the homemade icecream my husband finished the meal with. The staff were very friendly and efficient. No complaints.

Really lovely place and lovely staff. Very good food and lots of drinks to choose from. A great whisky and gin collection. I had lamb rump which was cooked perfectly. All came with veg. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

The management were extremely obliging with the booking and to make life a bit easier all round we gave guests a limited choice. My husband was duly surprised and we all enjoyed... More

The food here is top quality and well prepared, although a little on the expensive side for a rural location. The chef advised us on the type of steak to order and we had rib-eye since we both like steaks cooked medium rare. Lisa gave us excellent service and tempted us to a delicious desert. I enjoy real ale and... More
