A stone’s throw from the sea in coastal Sully, The Sully Inn offers a welcoming food and drink venue in the heart of the village.
A combination of drinking areas, whether it be in the popular cwtch, relaxing in front of the log burner, or in the traditional bar area, we have all on offer. Just call in for a drink, or join us for lunch or dinner and take your pick from our pub menu. Plenty of varied and designated eating spaces are on offer. Additional seating is available in the large walled beer garden as an attractive extension to the interior spaces.
A spacious, light and airy dining room upstairs doubles up both as extended restaurant space as well as also being available for functions. Call or email us if you are interested in booking for large numbers.

The Sully is closed on Sunday evenings and all day Monday and Tuesday. The kitchen closes 2.30-5pm Wednesday to Friday and last orders for food on Sunday are at 5pm.

    The roast was disappointing to be honest. Very bland. The beef was good but the road potatoes tasted of nothing and weren’t crispy or brown enough. The parsnip didn’t take of anything. The gravy was also bland. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a bland parsnip before! The service was good though and it was very clean.

    Parking was easy, just opposite the Inn. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our table. Only one quibble was that it was by the entry door, which was constantly in use. However, not too much of an issue. The table service was excellent, with a check up at each course to ensure that there were no issues. Finally the food was hot and very tasty along with being good value for money. My wife and stepdaughter are returning this Thursday for dinner.

    We had a pleasant Mother's Day lunch. There's a nice vibe to the Sully Inn. The staff were really helpful and friendly, including the manager. It gives the impression of a welcoming pub. That said, the kids' food (fish and chips) was quite greasy, and the adults' courses were quite satisfactory but not really memorable. I also skipped dessert because they were all of the stodgy 'English pudding' type. It would have been nice to have the option of something more tart in flavour like a lemon tart or a berry cheesecake. Overall, I would come again, and the price was a very fair reflection of the food. One question I'm left with: why is this pub so nice and its sister pub The Discovery such a dump in comparison?

    We have visited the Sully Inn on a number of times and has always been excellent. But this time the service was poor, we waited 20 minutes for our drinks and 55 minutes before we got our food. The couple opposite to us came in after us and had rcieved and finished their meal before we even got ours. We felt ignored. I complained to the waitress and to the manager, neither of them even said they were sorry. We will come again in the hope that this experience was a one off. It was made worse by the fact that we had brought friends with us, telling them how good it was. David Dalby
