From the moment I arrived to meet my friend for lunch it was a disaster. I only saw the sign saying that the car park was not to be used as I drove in off the main road and had to turn round and park on the grass verge. There are still major refurbishments going on . I'm not sure... More

Great food. Lobster starter was stunning, steak was incredible, and the sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Highly recommend.

Even if quite expensive, it's totally worth a visit. Food over there is amazing, they have a good selection of wine and beer. And the most imporrant - there is a vegan menu, with unbelievebly tasty starters, mains and desserts. Well done guys!

We are twice at the Sun Inn. And the food was amazing. Stunning location. Gorgeous decor. Really well put together. The first time was for my birthday. We ordered steak and they were hands down the best we ever tried. The second time we went back for New Years. The food was incredible again. Highly recommend it. Best food in... More

Have been coming here for many years, always loved it, but was disappointed this time. I felt for what we had and considering no alcoholic drinks it was pretty expensive for a mid week tea/dinner.

We visited the sun inn after an exhausting round of golf! We were all knackered. Needing fed and watered. The food is amazing. On first inspection there doesn't really seem like there is a great deal of choice for veggies. But Jill was on hand to suggest several options chef could make. I wasn't disappointed. The version and lamb dishes... More

We stopped at the pub enroute to Edinburgh airport having driven from Newcastle. The pub was smart and comfortable and the staff were attentive throughout our meal. Our food was excellent and everyone enjoyed what they had chosen. Well done to everyone at The Sun

Just been to Sun Inn for dinner and for the second time recently and have come away disappointed again. Ordered pre dinner drinks which came back wrong. Starters were good but had to send my wife's main back as it was served cold and by the time it came back I was obviously part way through mine which is never... More

I absolutely love the Sun Inn. I have never had a bad meal here and this was confirmed after our most recent visit on Sunday evening! The roast was delicious as was my goats cheese tart starter and the creme brulee was amazing...however definitely a sharer as it was huge! Will without a doubt be back.

Thank CJCJ2500
