Nice snug room with a large open fire was ideal on a cold day. We went with the coffee shop menu and my club sandwich with chips was excellent. Quite highly proced though, especially for this area. Service excellent.

We had heard a lot of verbal reports recommending The Sun Inn, but had avoided it due to the reports on TA regarding service. So was pleasantly surprised with the good service we got on Sunday 14th'slunch. Nice choices for a 2 course Sunday meal at £17 per person. We both had the Roast Beef which apart from the beef being a bit overcooked and the gravy being insipid, it also should have been hotter, it was nicely presented with a good selection of accompanying veg. Re the starters, the Ham Hock Terrine, tiny portion and the terrine turned out to be a small piece of ham hock, part of which was inedible. My other half had the Lentil soup served with a tiny roll. As a bread baker of many years, I know just how cheaply bread and rolls (including the new fad "artisan" types) can be made - they could do better. A large glass of Zinfandel seriously over-priced.

All this was further complicated by a man letting out loud guffaws at frequent intervals, which the staff kept on apologising for - 1 or 2 of these is initially amusing, but by the time we could escape 15 -20 frightening outbursts was a relief to get away from.

Not quite the nice relaxed Sunday lunch (cooked by someone else) that we had a hankering for.

Shall we return - the jury's out!!!

Stopped off on the way home for something to eat, there carpark is small but at night is not very lit up as my pal fell when we were leaving

The food was lovley but when we were there was a wedding on and we could see the full wedding due to where we were sitting, as they were using the same bar as we were

Overall worth a visit also has a out door area to sit

Have not visited The Sun Inn for while and glad to see they are still producing excellent food at reasonable prices. Service excellent on a Friday lunch time as was getting busy when we arrived but got a table no problem. My wife had the special menu great value two courses for £14. The meal was excellent and sticky toffee pudding was just brilliant.
Will return soon & if your in the area give it a try.
