After hearing how good this pub and restaurant was we had a meal there. On entering establishment there is a sign saying food tolerances no problem, however when given the menu I asked for the gluten free menu and was told that most things on menu they could do gluten free but it ended up there was very little gluten...

Well, it is under refurbishment - does that include the chef? Prices have been hiked up however has the quality?? Starters were acceptable but not technically challenging, main courses at best disappointing, totally over priced and this 'Gastro Pub' is writing cheques it's plates can't cash! The food was cold, all plates of food were cold the warmest thing on... More

Had lunch here on Christmas Eve, service was superb - absolutely spot on and the food was brilliant. Considering it was Christmas Eve and very busy the staff here ran the place like clockwork - the barman even took time to recommend a whisky to a non-whisky drinker (me!) despite being really busy! Hospitality at it's best!!! Highly recommend!!!

Staff were very welcoming on arrival till they found out we had a voucher. Then the service wasn't as nice and we had to wait for food longer than other customers. As it happened the voucher was given to us as a gift for Christmas and we were looking forward to trying this lovely place. So must say that staff's... More

We have visited on a number of occasions and have always enjoys the food, tonight was no different. The only slight issue was the service tonight, for some reason it was much slower than we have ever experienced. We sat down at 17:55 & the restaurant was not busy, however it took 20 mins before our order was even taken.... More

Ambience excellent. Low volume of noise despite a huge party next to us. Service speedy and friendly. Whole meal delicious ( all 4 members of our party). Very much recommend.

Most recent visit to the Sun was for a family birthday lunch. Parking was a little difficult this time because of ongoing works to the extension but hopefully the extra space will be good once it's done. We had some home made breads to start - really nice to whet the appetite. Then a mix from the varied menu. The... More
