I have been eating at the Sun Inn for several years. The food is always excellent. The restaurant has a comfortable feel with everyone enjoying the atmosphere and the food. Kelly is always very welcoming and attentive. The standard phrase in our wider family is "Never Disappoints".
I am just sorry I am not able to visit as regularly as I would like, due to personal reasons.
Keep up the excellent work!
Food allergy’s dealt with with no fuss still giving enough choice . Very tasty well presented food . Cauliflower cheese was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals and would recommend. Will be returning in the near future
I have been for a meal to this restaurant but its a long time ago and I'd forgot how wonderful it is
The food and the service was second to none
We have just moved into the area and this was our first visit. We had an excellent evening and will definitely be back!!
The food was acceptable but nothing special for the price, the service was a bit slow due to a coach party. The place is a nice country pub but there are better eating houses in the area.
Food gorgeous , staff very friendly & helpful . Surroundings lovely , snug & comfortable
I'd definitely recommend it for the food but the front of house is lacking. Service is not desperately attentive.
Always a super place to dine, food and service excellent!
Having dined numerous occasions at this restaurant we have always enjoyed both the food and good service also it has a lovely country pub Ambience.
Nice friendly staff that were accommodating despite us getting lost on the way! Food very nice flavours etc but wasn’t the cheapest. I would come again it was a lovely change.
We celebrated a birthday during village event being hosted in the garden / pizza area of the pub . The event created a great Family atmosphere the music was fantastic. Couldn’t of asked for a better Saturday afternoon with the family.
Great food and great service. Freshly cooked food, by a chef who knows what they are doing. This isn’t just ‘pub grub’ it’s proper cooking and with a menu for the more adventurous palate with enough of the conventional to suit everyone.
Haven’t visited for a while due to moving out of area. It still is a wonderful experience in every way. Food outstanding. Thoroughly recommended.
On arrival it was very difficult to get seated. A lot of people arrived at once and there seemed no plan to get people to their tables. We tried to move out of other diners way (who were sat eating) which resulted in other groups then getting seated before us.
Sunday dinner was very good - excellent value. No one on our table had roast potatoes so we figured that was normal, but after, looking around, others seemed to have them so maybe we just got missed.
Overall it was good. Not great, but would happily return.
One of our most favourite places to eat in and around York!
Friendly staff who were keen to help. Very accommodating when we needed to change our reservation at short notice. Quick service and excellent food - the roast beef was beautifully pink!
The food and attentive staff could not have been better.
Lovely meal. Efficient friendly staff. Lovely setting and ambiance. Would definitely recommend.
We’ve not been to the Sun for many years. Back then it was one of the best ‘gastro pubs’ around. Sadly this is no longer the case as exemplified by the fact that it was half empty on a Saturday night.
To be clear, the food was ok and the prices reasonable. The service is excellent. It’s just that the menu is lacking in creativity which was something the Sun used to excel at.
Excellent service, very good food, would recommend to anyone. Wine was expensive but delicious.
Lovely place. Been numerous times for lunch dinner and afternoon tea. Tonight went with a friend enjoyed a fabulous fish dish (plaice fillet delicious) Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable food always outstanding. The Chocolate made by Ashley is just lovely always purchase some to give as gifts. and eat myself!!
More than happy
Refined dining yet still in a casual ambience. Food good, including vegetarian options. Not sure if the cannelloni was fresh or frozen though. Loses a star because it took us a while to pay - could have been better predicted.
Me and my partner fully enjoyed our visit. The food was of a high standard and reasonably priced. Good selection of traditional pub food and restaurant style choices on the menu. Service was good as well. I only give 4 stars because one waitress felt a bit too nervous and didn't really understand/remember our drinks order.
Lovely meal, excellent service
Have now eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Fabulous food, excellent wine list and great service. The chocolate is very good too. Only lost 1 star as small children in the restaurant a bit noisy, but that's unavoidable really. I didn't bring my grandchildren for that reason. Will definitely be back. Please ignore any negative comments you see about poor or surly service - our experience has always been positive here
Top Sunday lunch as always great staff , service and food, chicken and chorizo pie with was excellent thanks to Ashley and his team
Food delicious staff wonderful ambience calm and welcoming and a great selection of homemade chocolates
No . My wife and I have been a few times now and found the food particularly meat to be always dry overcooked or even reheated with that awful reheated taste that meat gets when it's reheated. Overall the food although trying to be different is simply just nothing special. We have found on numerous occasions that staff can be quite short or off hand with you when speaking to them whilst others are quite nice. Unfortunately the inconsistencies are too much for us and we won't be returning certainly any time soon until our recent bad experience has faded somewhat.
We use Ye Old Sun whenever we are travelling up north-excellent meal and service-could not be improved
We went on Mothering Sunday and there were a number of young children in the pub - hence the mark for noise. Obviously, this would not be a typical day.
We were impressed that we managed to book a table at short notice, so were relieved we did so! The food was very good with a reasonable level of choice and the staff really looked after us.
Whilst this isn't a regular haunt for us, we do go to the Sun Inn 2-3 times a year and is always reliable.
Love, love, love the food at the Sun Inn. It's always busy and can be quite hectic but it's because it's so good! We go for special occasions and it never disappoints.
i had been itching to try this place since october 2018 and decided it was a great opportunity to treat my mother for mothers day , very very pleased we did and despite its not exactly on our doorstep i will be trying to visit again and agin as often as possible )) couldn't fault it at all , service , food quality , portion sizes and real ales, all perfect. chatted with some other regulars who frequantly dine there and was informed that they do different menus through the week on certain days which is also appealing.
learning that they make their own bread and also chocolate which you can purchase to take home with you just topped it off to one of my favourite venues
Must be one of the absolute best pubs we've ever been to. Food is gorgeous, but it's the staff, the setting and all the 'little extras' that make this place so special.
Can't recommend enough, and this is from a family with two young children (youngest being 2) - and everyone left happy and full.
Thank you again for a lovely meal and wonderful experience!
We had a beautiful meal and the service was excellent.
One best thing was the gluten free meals, especially the home made gluten free bread, still warm and the best tasted.
Would definitely recommend and return
Visit this place every time we visit York. Always great food, nice atmosphere, very friendly. Recommended.
I booked weeks in advance but felt we were cramped and one person at our table had to keep getting up from his seat to let staff and guests through between tables.
At the end of the meal (which was good pub food) we were overcharged on our bill for two drinks. This was put right once I queried it. When we placed our order the waitress said that chips were not included on the steak dinner so we ordered a side order. Once the steak arrived it did come with chips and the extra portion was therefore an unnecessary purchase.
Fantastic food as always! The staff are very helpful, attentive but not over baring in any way. It's so easy to book and the atmosphere is fab - a true country pub!
Fantastic food and service that is really good value for money. Fabulous
