We were staying at the Sun Inn due to a family bereavement. The staff having enquired whether we were on holiday and being told the reason were very kind, but not intrusive whilst we were there. The Inn is very clean, comfortable and the food at breakfast and in the restaurant in the evening delicious. The Inn is being extended,...

Booked 2 rooms for 3 nights with friends over the Easter weekend. The rooms are lovely with great facilities. The bar and new breakfast building are very nice for meals. The staff are very friendly, going out of their way to help. They noticed I had used a throw pillow during the night when cleaning the room (soft pillows hurt...

We have dined here and recommended the Sun Inn in the past even using for wedding guests to stay over .Have had some outstanding food here but not this time. Staff were welcoming and helpful but our food was well below expected standard and we came away feeling this was a waste of money. Mark up on the wine seems...

Mixed feelings about this place which has the potential to be superb but is not quite hitting the mark. The downstairs is modern, staff are very welcoming and hard working and the food, good. However upstairs is quite a different story: Leaky shower (had a pump to empty the bath), stained cushions on top of bed, main light not working...

Found this place more by luck than judgement. read the reviews including the negatives about the work going on, but still booked and im glad i did. 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

Stayed here with work, lovely overall rest stop, beautiful old building with nice features, food was fab, staff very friendly, room and bed was great, only gripe was carpet was a bit grubby on room in places,and water from shower unavoidably went on floor due to layout of bathroom, wiped up with nice white towel which resulted in dirtying it...

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...
