Just had dinner here on Monday evening and cannot recommend it enough. A long and varied menu left us with the problem of when can we come back to order the stuff we didn't have tonight. I decided on a smoked ham and smoked haddock starter while my wife had black pudding potato cake tipped with crispy hens egg. For...

When i arrived, yes there is work going on extending the place, but it wasnt an issue and it certainly didnt affect my stay at all. When i checked in i was met...

Stayed here on business using hotel and restaurant. Very pleasant staff, nice, clean and comfortable. Only negative would be the cost of food and drink, £14 for fish & chips and £4 a pint personally that is a little steep( there was an option for a small fish and chips for £10 but comparing to the large portion I guess...

I love it here. I've only stayed once but was blown away by the: - Evening meal; a seriously proper restaurant with an excellent chef. Awards are justified. - Hospitality (even if sometimes they prioritise the telephone over me) - the room; copper bath at the end of the bed. Complimentary bottle of wine. Sky TV - Breakfast; as you'd...

Great service and nice enough food. The dauphinoise seemed to be bought in rather than home made which was a shame but the braised beef was lovely. I will go again when it's not Christmas to try the usual menu

I simply love the Sun Inn and can't wait to visit once the extension is complete. The food is always exceptional. I have a number of food intolerances. I advised of this at the time of booking and when I arrived the chef had noted on a special menu the food I could have or what could be amended to...

I had the pleasure of staying here 25-27th October. Upon arrival i was greeted with some building works, which once they are finished i am sure will be fabulous. The Bar/restaurant is very welcoming as are all the staff. The room i had room 3 had an enormous comfortable bed and the food was exquisite. Whether you want just a...

Staff super friendly and efficient. Room well appointed and comfortable. Dinner was on another level.....the soup was the best thing I have eaten in the past 5 years - bursting with flavours and totally moreish. The main of shin of beef was superb as was the sticky toffee pudding. I can't recommend this place highly enough - absolutely wonderful
