This is more than your average pub grub. We noted that a new extension is being built and it is probably on the success of the food served... More

For starters, we had oysters, and scallops- just perfect-. For main courses we had pork in crumb with roasted potatoes.....just divine!!! Difficult to write with words how everything was just perfect. A beautiful address,... More

My husband and I visited on our way to Perth, I had been a number of times as a child but have not visited in years and we decided to give it a try, we were not disappointed. The restaurant is lovely and I particularly liked that there was plenty of room between tables. The food was amazing! My husband... More

Table was booked for 8pm. We were slightly early so were shown to the new bar area. Ordered drinks, sat waiting for 20 minutes for... More

Been a few times to The Sun Inn before the extension was added and have always had a great meal with fantastic service but oh how things have changed.... They seem to be struggling with the extra tables and either don't have enough staff or have recruited extras and don't have them up to speed. On our visit waited 15... More
