We've heard lots of good things about the Sun but were disappointed tonight. I'm not sure if it was because it is Christmas but tonight the service was slow and impersonal, the portions were tiny and over priced. The quality of the food was good...More

Had a really lovely evening. Service was warm, attentive and efficient. The food was interesting and delicious. We had heard The Sun was good and had read the reviews. I honestly can't believe anyone could find fault. In every way the evening was lovely.
