The staff are very welcoming and we were soon shown to our table .The regular menu is varied and has the touches that elevates it to... More

we visited here two or three years ago and I gave a mixed review. We went back today and had an altogether different experience. Although a limited menu, for lunch at any rate, the food that we chose was cooked to a high standard and presented likewise. It's not a cheap meal but won't break the bank. It cost £30.40p... More

From opening the door, to leaving 1 1/2 hrs later, we could not have been more impressed. Lovely staff, delish food and really pleasant area to sit and chat/eat. Not... More

We arranged a family Xmas Party at Ye Old Sun Inn and can safely say it was superb. The dealings with Kelly were all relaxed and informal. The food was excellent and the room provided was just what we needed. We were a party of around 30 and Kelly put on a lovely cold/warm buffet.

We enjoyed a superb meal at The Sun. First class food, served by friendly waiting staff. The price reflects the quality of the food and the dining experience. It has a warm, welcoming, atmosphere.

We booked Ye Old Sun Inn for a family Christmas get together for 6. We have eaten here twice before and this visit was just as good if not better than the previous visits. The service is excellent and friendly. The selection of beers and drinks is good and the food is really well cooked, great flavours and a good... More

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.

Cracking Sunday lunch, unbelievable quality, the comfort feeling in this beautiful hidden away gastro pub is out of this world, warm welcoming feeling with amazing food and good selection of drinks.
