Good warm atmosphere. The mash was lovely! Definitely well worth a visit and dog friendly. Although more choice on ciders for my preference - although that's just me.

Excellent meal and a lovely atmosphere, plus we could take our well behaved Greyhound. We were staying just down the road from the Sun Inn and it was very handy. I believe you can order takeaway meals as well.
