Had a lovely relaxing evening here with friends. Warming ambience, good atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Portions are all very good sized and incredible flavours. Enjoyed fish and very tender steaks cooked to perfection. Even managed to fit in dessert with an amazing choice of homemade ice creams. Would definitely recommend.

Went for an early dinner, received a very warm welcome and as it was early we were invited to sit in the lovely bar area next to the roaring fire. Food and service were excellent, will definitely be back to try the Sunday lunch.

Thank you Geoff for you review, although we are unsure if this review has been posted on the right business. None of our tables are positioned by the kitchen door -The kitchen door is located in the lobby area near the toilet door entrances away from the dining areas. Also we have 2 log burning fires, one in each bar,... More

As a relative newcomer to the surrounding villages it wasn't long before I found Ye Old Sun Inn provided a welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy a beer or good food. The staff are always welcoming, the beer well kept, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the food of a constantly high standard. (..and I can be a fussy git).... More

Lovely food in comfortable surroundings. Not really a pub. Has had a good reputation for some time but this was our first visit, will definitely go again.

We were made to feel welcome today from walking through the door to leaving. We came for Sunday lunch with two friends. The Sun Inn is cosy and traditional. The restaurant is a selection of small rooms. We were impressed by the menu. For a starter my husband and I chose the stuffed mushroom topped with 3 cheeses. We aren't... More

My wife and i had lunch today. Food and service outstanding. Always visit The Sun on our frequent trips to Yorkshire for the last ten years. Never had a negative experience. Consistently top class. In Ashley and Kelly's absence Russell and staff attentive and smiling. See you soon. Frank & Gillian S.

Four of us went for Xmas lunch and had a great day. The food was tasty, all served with Xmas cheer. When we made any awkward requests (deserts and cheese on the table at the same time) this was done without question and with grace. I found the atmosphere in the pub festive and everyone seemed to be having a... More
