I can only assume that "Mel and Bren" were on a night off as the service from the young waitress left a lot to be desired. On arrival we were told our table was the one in the corner.When we said someone was sitting at the table she said well they shouldn't be so tell them to move! Fortunately this... More

This is a great pub that serves good value food. Unlike many pubs with good food this is still a proper pub, where you can go for a good pint or a glass of decent wine and not feel like you're taking up space in a restaurant. We had tempura prawn starters, scampi and chips (very generous portions) and burger... More

The chef here appears to be on fixed hours. We turned up late for a table and we're told 3 times to hurry up and order as the chef was finishing soon. It was 2050 on a Friday evening. Not a great welcome but the special Friday steak night was tasty enough

Popped in for dinner on a Thursday - this is curry night alongside the normal menu. I did think the menu choice was a bit limited but the burger we had was very nice ( huge though)! This meant no room for a pud which also looked scrumy I recommend that you book if you want a guaranteed table- dogs... More

As a family of 10, with 4 teenage children and 2 dogs this pub was a real gem! Good menu, excellent wine choices, superb atmosphere and attentive staff. If we have the opportunity to be in the area again this will certainly be on our list to re visit. We are very surprised by the negative comments regarding the staff... More

After two days of walking along the Northumberland Coast we needed a good meal before catching the train home. We found the Sun Inn at just the right time. Their Sunday lunch was tasty, served in good time, and left us not needing anything more. The staff were friendly and the pub looked great.

Hmmmm....food great and when you first walk in you think 'o yes! this is lovely!' - candles, wooden floors, rustic stuff...all is well for a relaxed evening.... errr no. The service we received spoiled the good impressions and the promise of chilling. At best one could call it brisk and professional, better than sloppy and slow I guess but there... More
