We visited for the second year for our annual family reunion lunch and a couples dinner. The Sun Inn is an easy walk from our B&B at Little Court and offers an excellent range of well prepared good value food. The carvery is particularly extensive and discounted for over-60's in the week. Service is friendly and professional and altogether it's an enjoyable place.

We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime Breaking our journey on our way home from holiday. The staff were extremely attentive but not annoyingly so. We both had the carvery of beef and pork and the selection of vegetables was excellent. In addition to roast potatoes there were crushed new potatoes done with garlic butter which were exquisite. The meat was plentiful and even though we both have big appetite we still took some home for our pet. The food from the menu at other tables looked lovely and large portions as well. Would highly recommend. Even when we paid the bill we were asked again if everything was alright but you felt that the person actually wanted to know

Met with friends here recently for Sunday Lunch.
Nice friendly atmosphere on entering & shown quickly to our table.
Wait/waitress service for drinks as well as food.
As this was a Sunday there was a carvery set up (I think though that they may have this every day ?) We chose from the menu Beef Bourguignon, Caesar Salad, Macaroni Cheese & Pie and Chips.
All were well cooked & presented nicely.
Prices were what you would expect of this type of establishment.
Would happily revisit & recommend.
One odd thing though was that we were told we could have a table for 12pm but that they would need it back after 2hours. We were happy with this arrangement & they did ask us to vacate table just before 2pm. The very strange thing was though that as we left the whole seating area of pub/restaurant was more than half empty so can't understand the need for us to leave so promptly !!!!
