An internally modernised but still nice looking GBG listed pub. Lowish ceiling and plain walls adorned with many Camra awards, beams festooned with pump clips and there’s a plethora of Tetleys memorabilia. Six pulls of mostly Yorkshire beers in decent nick. Two rooms side by side, there's no counter in the right hand room and you need to pass through there to reach the gents which although not outside is across an open passageway leading to the back garden. The facilities by the way are immaculatly kept. The service however is more local oriented if you know what I mean.

I'm not sure what prompted the previous three reviewers to add their comments to this site, but as a genuine pub-goer and regular reviewer on this site I have to say I thought it was really very good indeed.

It's a lovely old building in local stone and looks an absolute picture. I entered from the garden at the back of the pub, because that's where the bicycle parking is situated (oh yes) and found my way through to the main bar room at the front, where there are six hand pumps, offering a variety of beers from Yorkshire breweries plus ex-Yorkshire Tetleys Bitter (see photos). Tetleys trays compete for space on the walls and ceiling with a multitude of pump clips - the latter are winning. This pub is in the Good Beer Guide and wins awards from local Camra, not to mention Yorkshire Pub of the Year Runner Up 2015.

I went for the Helmsley Yorkshire Legend, which was absolutely spot on - a fine example of a well-balanced beer in perfect condition. The landlord was happy to be engaged in conversation about what a pleasure it is to come across a beer like that, and why can't I find any in Sheffield (with a few exceptions, to be fair). Regrettably I had to cycle a further six miles so only stayed for a half, but will be back when next in the area.

I was greated with a lovely warm welcome from the owners, staff and locals when I visited the Sun Inn for the first time quite recently. There was some great live music on as there always seems to be on a Sunday and excellent choice in wines and ales. If you haven't been before, give it a try and if you have n didnt have a good time it must have been before the new management took over. One n All need to get down to the Sun Inn.x
