Has been a bit of tradition to come here to celebrate Father’s Day and Mother’s Day over the years. Had to postpone last year so it was great to come back this year. Fabulous greeting and service from Annie and Ellie and the food didn’t disappoint either. My sons hunters chicken was apparently ‘beautiful’, my father and I opted for the lamb which was generously portioned and extremely tasty. My mother had the beef which she devoured quickly with enjoyment! Only two of us had room for deserts, but they appeared quickly and were equally scoffed cheerfully! All in all a very pleasant and cheerful afternoon spent in the company of family and pleasant staff in traditional surroundings. Looking forward to Mother’s Day 2022!

Went for lunch today with my brother and the food was superb as always. The roast meat was perfectly cooked as was my brother’s steak and the desserts were absolutely gorgeous! The team here are always super friendly and helpful, especially Abbie, Annie, Reese and Lauren, all of whom are extremely professional and attentive. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great quality food for a good price and exceptional service. Will definitely be back! Thank you for making my meal out so enjoyable, will be seeing you guys again soon!

We came here yesterday lunchtime which was the first time this year. I had the pate to start and fillet steak for main. My friend had the garlic mushrooms for starter and fillet also. All meals were really lovely. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The staff were excellent especially our waitress Ellie she really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble. We can’t wait to go back. Well done The Sun Hotel.
