Will Larter left this review about The Old Sun Inn

My review of 2014 needs revisiting, because the atmosphere in here is now completely different - or maybe it's different day, different vibe. There are six hand pumps, with beers all from the Marstons stable, but my main memory of this visit was the loud pop music pouring from loudspeakers in every corner. No thanks.

I too didn't mind it in here though I preferred the Cheshire Cheese next door.

The previous reviewer must have been particularly unlucky to call in here on a Sunday and find no hand pulls on. There are six hand pumps on the bar and on the occasion of our visit (also on a Sunday) five of them had beers available. It was fairly quiet, but then so were the nearby Swan and the Cheshire Cheese. I like it here, with its complicated layout of little private rooms, and nooks and corners where you can settle down for a conversation or just to read the paper over a pint. The beers we had were in good condition, if a little unadventurous. We called into all three local pubs during our brief stop in Buxton and enjoyed them all.
