Popped in here over the weekend with my wife for food. Great food and the pub is situated within a nice village.

Will definitely pop by next time.

Made welcome on arrival. Covid rules clearly explained. Main course brought, incorrect from our order and waitress clear that it was our error although all four of us were sure it was a mistake by her. Food fine except vegetables with the very good steak pie were lukewarm. When bill arrived we were over charged for five main courses although only four customers. Overall our experience was such that we will not be returning. Feel sure that the error on the bill was because we had queried the order. A great pity because we have very good memories of the Sun Inn from past visits.

Very well organised re Covid. Given full instructions on arrival re way out, toilet use etc. Seated quickly and drinks orders taken as soon as we were at our table. Excellent service-friendly and efficient at all stages. Food was of excellent quality (though my ravenous son thought the steak and ale pie was on the small side). Beautifully presented. Bit noisy but equally we were delighted to see the place so busy after the recent strains on the hospitality sector.

We enjoyed Sunday lunch at Ye Old Sun, we sat outside in the marquee as we had our dog with us & its not dog friendly indoors. It was very pleasant though can imagine it would be a bit chilly on a colder day. Food was good, veggie roast was lovely, though the vegetables a bit bland & the bottle of red was delicious. Will definitely visit again.

Placed in a quiet room at front of pub no atmosphere. Drinks fine but food only average I'm afraid - my steak and ale pie had seen better days and the meat was akin to pedigree chum - my wife's traditional sunday lunch was ok but lukewarm. Prices were top end and there are much better sunday lunches to be had elsewhere.

I booked a table online. I took my wife for her birthday meal on Sunday. It was all very well organized in regard to Covid, sanitizer, one way system, distanced tables and all the staff wearing visors. Plenty of places to sit outside in a quiet village setting. There is a extensive menu including Sunday Lunch, burgers, pizzas, pies and steaks. Our 2 courses were very tasty and hot. Can highly recommend the True Blue beef burger and sticky toffee pudding. All the staff were professional, cheerful and attentive. A nice touch they asked if we were celebrating. I said it was my wife's birthday and they bought a pudding out with Happy Birthday written on the plate in chocolate. Really impressed, would definitely visit again. Thank you to all the staff.

All 5 guests enjoyed main course. The tapas style starters could be a little cheaper, they recommend 3/4 tapas style starters per couple but that makes it a £10 starter 4 for £15 should be the price. They were lovely though.
