We visited The Sun on Saturday 4th March, returning to my husbands home village after 30 years. We stayed with friends at Crook Hall B&B which was fantastic, unfortunately the same could not possibility be said for The Sun. Clearly whoever was cooking in the kitchen that night was neither a chef nor a cook, the food didn't even fit... More

Just returned from Sunday lunch, which was superb. It was everything we wanted it to be; excellent quality, generous portions, good service and good value. The Sunday lunch was plentiful, using local products, with a good choice, everything was well cooked and it was very good value. We will definitely return!

Thank you, our Sunday lunches are getting more popular week on week and we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment as we are only a small pub, more seating outside when the weather improves Thanks from all the team More

Came here for dinner and had a good meal. Party of 4 and we were well looked after. A few dishes on the menu not available which was a bit disappointing.
