Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Sun Inn

Our final stop of a short crawl of Northamptonshire was this village pub in Hardingstone.

We were greeted on arrival by a young waitress who offered us a table inside at the rear of the bar, or outside on a patio area. We initially sat on an indoors table reserved for a much later time. But we soon moved to a grassy area beyond the patio, where there is further bench seating and a children's play area.

Whilst the Sun appears to be food-dominated, there were 4 national real ales - Black Sheep Best Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Fuller's London Pride & Gale's Seafarers. But my attention was drawn to an additional handpull offering a real cider that I had not previously seen - Saxby's Straight Outta the Orchard. At 7.5%, it wasn't for the faint hearted. But it was very enjoyable.

I read that a CAMRA discount is offered. But it wasn't for the cider.

There is an outbuilding with another bar, adjacent to the patio area. The same building also houses outdoor toilets. Although there may be further toilets in the main building, which I did not spot.

A fitting end to a short afternoon visiting pubs in Northamptonshire.
