Great little boozer just off Richmond Green. Whether it's rugby or football or just a few pints and a bit of banter you want you're sure to be made feel welcome here.

I’m new in the area and a friend recommend this place. I’ve been to this pub few times to watch Six Nations and definitely worth a visit. Nice and cold largers, friendly staff and a massive screen. :)

The Sun Inn is a traditional British rugby pub. We serve fresh, home cooked food Monday - Sunday. Our bar is very well stocked with a wide range of wines and spirits as well as serving delicious, well looked after Fullers beers!!
