I have been here before many many years ago so was delighted to return with a friend for an informal Sunday lunch while visiting the area. We just wanted a light pub lunch so sat in the bar and it was obvious that this place has a lot of "regulars" and thats always a good sign. We ordered a starter... More

Just walked across the fields from East Bergholt to Dedham to have lunch at The Sun. We'd not been there for a bit, but it is still as good as ever. Very friendly and helpful staff - my wife is a vegan and we'd not booked, but they were instantly accommodating and the chef came up with a fantastic warm... More

This is the sort of village pub Londoners dream of finding when they venture north of the M25: wood panelled walls, super friendly staff, tables laid with an eclectic mix of vintage side plates, all opposite the grounds of a medieval church. The lunchtime menu lives up to expectations with well thought out set and a la carte options. We... More

Members of the immediate family had travelled variously from North Norfolk, South East London and Marlow for a private family event and we'd planned to stay on and have lunch together before going our separate ways. Two of the party needed gluten free meals. I'd used TripAdvisor to research local restaurants and, people, you did not let us down! The... More

We booked into Milsoms, very nice, comfortable, bit out of town. No complaints. But took a walk into Dedham and happened upon the Sun Inn for a lunch time pint. Friendly staff and regulars, and great pint persuaded us to go back for evening meal, which proved to be a result. Cannot recommend too highly the food, service, ambience, and... More

This was a second visit and the food was as brilliant as last time. Definitely worth making a special trip to visit. Had a lovely pasta dish and pudding at lunch time, and a delicious antipasti plate and lamb in the evening. All parts of all the dishes were superb and with, which is what I really love about the...
