We had a lovely 2 nights here with excellent food. We really like the refurbishment which means it still looks traditional but is comfortable inside. Staff were very friendly. A few minor issues like they forgot to do our room and the door to the bathroom didn't fir properly, but we had a great stay overall. And the brewery is... More

We were recommended the Sun Inn by a colleague and thought we would try it for a quick pint ! I must say that Hook Norton beer is one of my favourites, but unfortunately not in this pub. We ordered a pint of Lion first and it looked like pureed soup and then we tried Hooky and that looked and... More

We recently spent two nights at The Sun Inn. They do a great package wich includes bed and breakfast and a tour of the Hook Norton brewery which is five minutes up the road. The staff were lovely and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food is fantastic and the full english breakfast was one of the best... More

Have eaten here a couple of times now and on both occasions, I have to say the food was very good indeed. I can, in particular recommend the ploughman's lunch, which I feel is good value and worth adding the gammon for very little extra! The Sunday lunch was also very tasty, well presented with the cheese board excellent and... More

My wife, myself and also three friends had heard “good things “about The Sun, so we decided to see for ourselves. We went last Tuesday 15th in the evening and decided to have a two course meal each. We could only describe the food as being excellent, all five of us had no complaints what so ever and all washed... More

Having recently been refurbished the interior is as you would expect from a bistro pub ....typical fashionable paint scheme and shabby chic interior. This is very pleasant and comfortable but it has lost some of the charm and individualism that you would expect from Hook Norton. The food is tasty but the portions are far too small. The males in...

We have just returned to our home in Oxford having had lunch at the SUN. My wife and I arranged to meet our daughter, son in law and three of their children at the SUN after they had been for a long walk near Hook Norton. The exterior is not very prepossessing, but the inside has been completely refurbished and... More
