We visited the Sun Yesterday and had a table in the restaurant early in the evening (after being recommended it) The Sun obviously has a good local reputation and, boy, do they deserve it. The Red head staff (michelle) was welcoming, friendly and highly attentive throughout. The atmosphere is warm and convivial and, most importantly, the food and ales are... More
