We chose The Sun Inn due to its proximity to Hook Norton Brewery and have to say we were really pleased with our stay. The Inn has a gastro pub feel, looks modern and fresh inside whilst keeping the traditional pub feel. Food was very good and of a high quality and we enjoyed both our evening and breakfast meals....

The Sun is our local, and we have been over for dinner three times now since its refurbishment. The decor is lovely - light and refreshing - and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed both food and wine. Apart from just being really good, a great thing food-wise is that helpings are manageable, and there is room left for pudding!... More

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

The menu looked great well presented. We both had a starter, Hubby had Ham Hock Terrine and I had Smoked Mackerel on a bed of beetrout -... 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...
