Good pub grub

With open fires and well kept real ale, the Sun Inn was exactly what we were looking for on a cold and wet January night. So was the food...menu was limited (possibly because this is a very quiet time of year - we were only of only six customers at 8pm) but the gammon with chips and lasagne we... read more

Maybe because it is so quiet at this time of year but everything was ok but not special enough. One bloke running it all who was keen to please. Standard pub food which tasted alright but wouldn't rush back for. Could have had the Christmas menu but not sure I wanted that at the end of January. Were the sprouts... More

Apologies we didn't meet your expectations. Our FESTIVE menu was still available as we still had party bookings so thought we would extend the offer to other visitors on the 2 and 3 course offer there was only a couple of dishes related to Christmas all others are available all year round next year we will re consider this and...

We used to eat at the Sunn Inn but have not been since its refurbishment so were looking forward to our visit. We were so disappointed. We were the only customers there. Our meals were not good. The duck was tough and the vegetables appeared to has been reheated and sauce was sour. Not the best fish and chips. Sorry.... More

We have been visiting here since we moved to Staveley in the summer, Pauline the Landlady is excellent and the service has always been fantastic. The fires are always on even when it's quiet and the food is just really really good!

Very welcoming.Food delicious and service prompt. Waiting on staff very helpful. Nice touch with the goody bag of sweets and tangerines to take home. Only fault we could find was we would have liked more "pigs in blankets". Would definitely eat there again.

We received a warm welcome from the staff when we visited the Sun Inn for a pre Christmas get-together with friends and could not fault the service . We opted for the Christmas menu, the food arrived promptly, was hot, tasty and nicely presented. Good value for money.
