I have only visited Ye Old Sun Inn on a couple of occasions but each time I have been the food has been delicious. The best thing though is how helpful and friendly the staff are. They were very accommodating as we had a few fussy eaters. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Whilst we are not regulars here we have been a few times now. Staff always provides old well one and service, food was excellent and choice of menu just right. We will be back again very soon. Today the chips were perfection itself. Steak and kidney pie excellent too.

There are many good eating houses in York but the real gems are usually to be found in the surrounding villages. One such gem is the Sun Inn at Colton which is relatively small and certainly very cosy - a real country pub in fact. Furthermore, although not cheap, it does give very good value for money - unlike some... More

We visited Ye Old Sun Inn on the 16 March for lunch to mark our 41st wedding anniversary. We had not been before but from the moment we arrived we could not have been made more welcome. We had advised ahead of time that my wife was gluten free & vegetarian, they immediately provided a choice of meals to suit.... More

We went this evening (sat 6pm) for my husbands birthday, taking a 10 yr old & a very excited 7 yr old. We had a plate as starter between us of anti pesto! Great for sharing. I think it would be nice just for one person too! Hubby had chicken, mushroom pie. Loved it, said it was better then mine!... More

last Sunday we went to the Inn for Lunch for the second time. As the previous visit, the staff were extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. The food was excellent and a very varied choice. I am a vegetarian and had no problem at all choosing a delicious meal. It was very busy and the staff worked hard to keep everyone... More

We came here for Sunday lunch, a traditional country pub a few miles from York. There was a good choice on the set menu though some main courses carried a surcharge. For starters we had:- Chicken parfait with red onion relish which was declared delicious though the accompanying toast was a little meagre. Black pudding; one slice accompanied by an... More
