I have been here a few times and the staff are really attentive kind warm and welcoming. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are always smiling and happy. The food on the other hand is exceptionally scrumptious. I have never been disappointed with the quality and presentation. I must say hats off to the chef as I... More

Amazing lunch with my mother-in-law. Friendly service from when we arrived and very attentive throughout our lunch, despite them getting very busy. I have some allergy requirements and although the menu wasn't very clear for me the waitress was knowledgable about the food and happy to talk to the chef, who was very accommodating and delivered me an amazing 3...

From the outside this looks like just an average roadside pub, inside it is well decorated, however once the food arrives it goes into a different league. I had arranged to meet with some friends here as Trip Advisor rated it as number one in Basingstoke. We were not disappointed. The menu is not large, but I understand changes with... More

Having heard good reports from friends, my wife and I visited The Sun Inn at Dummer on a Wednesday lunchtime out of curiosity. Although we arrived quite early (on the stroke of 12:00) we were made to feel very welcome by friendly and courteous staff and were given a choice of tables in the restaurant. A simple lunch of sandwiches... More

We had mushroom & truffle which was the soup of the day. All the staff were friendly & helpful. Really made my day. We will definitely... More

My wife recently turned the big five O so we decided to book the Sun Inn for a party for the big day. For a small fee, the staff allowed us to reserve the bar for the evening, which gave the event an air of exclusivity. We were also allowed to bring our own DJ for our guests to dance... More

Absolutely more than 'just a pub'. The menu is a wonderfull surprise, filled with extraordinary combinations. Served with a Michelin zest, but a pub price tag!

Had a lovely lunch today, met up with friends we hadn't seen for a while. The gents had the soup (Tomato and Red Pepper) which they both agreed was delicious and the sandwiches were packed with filling. I had the Burger, exchanged the chips for extra salad. Didn't have puddings but the food and service were excellent. Will certainly go... More

All produce is locally sourced, and food cooked fresh on the premises to order.Drinkers are catered for with a wide variety of high-quality ales, many of which are supplied by the local Triple fff Brewery.
