A pleasant pub on the edge of town, there is a small outside terrace at the front and a large car park with a gravelled overspill area for coaches. The interior is much as described by Soup Dragon, below. The carvery looked like good value, though they stopped it early to cater for a private party. The staff were friendly enough, while the other customers were a mixed bunch including a large party enjoying their own picnic in the garden. Ales on were Trooper’s Light Brigade, Doombar and Purity Gold, all in reasonable condition. I’d be very happy to come back.

The pub is a real gem. It is a beautiful looking Pub on both the inside and outside. There is ample car parking and the Beer Garden and Children's play area is a great feature. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The carvery was absolutely beautiful and was worth every penny. The beef was very tender and the vegetables were hot and fresh and kept under lids. My wife has a wheat and gluten allergy. The pub serve gluten free gravy and the head chef very kindly came to our table to discuss the options available. He also offered to cook anything she liked and he clearly knew how to cater for people with wheat allergies. I am glad that we came here to eat and we will pay this pub another visit when we are back in the area. Well Done to the Sun Inn and Thank you.

Terrible Sunday lunch. Rude service and mediocre carvery. We arrived to find the table we had booked particularly had been given away, even though we were early to be seated. Basically we were told we had to live with it and take another table - overlooking the main road. We ate and left. The carvery was okay but not worth £9.50 - greasy roast potatoes and soggy cabbage. We'll wait until it's under new management to try this place again. The meal was supposed to be a treat for my mum - early mother's day - sadly it was horribly disappointing.
