Popped in for lunch. Shabby chic tired look but pleasant ambience.Had intended trying the steak and ale pie advertised on their website only to find on arrival that it was a steak and kidney pie which is not quite the same thing especially if you don't like kidney. Decided to try a burger. Surprised to find a £10 burger in... More

My girlfriend works here and have been for a meal with her on many occasion and never been disappointed, food delivered to a very high standard, staff very friendly and a wide verity of drinks including the most unique ales, just the whole environment of the place is so welcoming and warm with a traditional Yorkshire feeling. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Brilliant!... More

Sunday lunch was the last get-together for our family spending a Bank Holiday weekend celebrating two birthdays and it could not have been more pleasant, from the quality of the food and drink to the excellent service and delightful country pub atmosphere. Most of all for the five "Southerners" in our party of seven, it was a chance to enjoy... More

The pub is based in a beautiful area which adds to the ambience of the pub it self. We visited after a afternoon out walking with our family. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming lady. She saw us to our table and was polite and curtious. The food was ordered and promptly cooked to perfection.... More

My partner and I decided to pop into this lovely pub after a long day of shopping and pottering. I am so glad we found this place! It was a Sunday evening and extremely busy however the fantastic staff kindly did all they could to get us a table even though they were all booked up. We waited a short... More

We ate here after really looking forward to going and we were very disappointed! As soon as we walked in there was no atmosphere and it didn't feel welcoming. The starter was ok but I don't feel that it's too hard to get an antipasti plate right. Our mains were awful. My friend had to keep getting rid of her... 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.

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 and stayed... More
