I recently held an important lunch function for 38 people at Ye Old Sun Inn in Colton and apart from inviting the guests the worry of the event was taken away from me by the owners, Kelly and Ashley. There was absolutely no pressure in us ending our event - we had a few speeches and thank you's... read more

Food was excellent. However, the dining room is like having your meal in the 2 nd class waiting room at York Station on a busy weekday morning.With other similar places in the local area i will not be back.

Just had a meal here and it was very good. The food was hearty, British fare and added to this was the very friendly staff. Had the best ever presented ice cream scoops from a pub restaurant. Would highly recommend this place.

Have been many times before and enjoyed Booked for Saturday evening a birthday meal post the "happy hour" Disappointed this time, food so so - soup tasteless, main courses only OK + short of vegetables described on menu and service only adequate - balance between being left in peace and ignored lost. Came away wishing we had gone elsewhere Hopefully... More

The food was outstanding. Very well presented and very delicious. A great choice on the menu made it hard what to choose as everything sounded delicious. My partner and I had a starter and main course each and were disappointed of ourselves as we were too full to opt for a dessert. Amazing food. Thanks to the whole team for... More

This is a lovely place to eat. Very friendly attentive staff, from bar staff through to restaurant staff. I ordered the fresh asparagus and hubby ordered the scallops. Both were delicious. There was a nice break between starter and the main course which I like. My main was sweet potato and butternut squash curry, the other main was chicken. Both... More

It was exactly that, a very busy Sunday lunch. We'd booked in advance and arrived early and had a drink in the bar,very cosy and comfortable with excellent beers. About 5 minutes later we were seated in a very busy restaurant.The waitresses were friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered 2 starters and 2 mains. The starters were quick to arrive and... More

We went here for a Sunday lunch after it had been recommended to us by a friend. We ordered the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding which was a little ordinary. The beef itself was nice enough but the gravy was a bit thin and the helpings of vegetables were not very generous - just all a bit tasteless! The deserts... More

Having visited this pub many times some years ago we went back to see if it was still as good. I am pleased to announce that it's still excellent with the same people running the place. The menu has some unique takes on traditional dishes with generous portions. Beer was also very good as you would hope from a reputable... More
