We visited this Inn whilst staying at a nearby campsite for the weekend. We received a warm welcome and were impressed with the clean, modern interior. We were offered a range of local ales to try, all of which were excellent. We chose food from the menu which was served in good time and was of very good quality. Couldn't fault the service or the standard. Would recommend to anybody staying in the area.

The food ,service and staff were brilliant. The room was lovely and the bed was really comfy but unfortunately we didn't get to sleep until 2:30 due to a loud humming noise(maybe a fan?) coming from the pub toilets underneath our room. At 6:30 this started again together with the cleaner dragging chairs about and slamming doors.The breakfast was amazing,especially the black pudding,but it didn't quite make up for the bad night! We were looking for somewhere to stay on a regular basis but it won't be The Sun Inn.

Room Tip: Steer clear of the Cow room, ask for the Pig or Sheep rooms

Decided to take advantage of the lovely weather by walking from ellesmere to welshampton. Was told the Sun Inn had reopened and called in.
What a great place. Had an area where dogs are welcome (so many pubs in the countryside don't) so we stayed for a couple of pints and something to eat. There is a friendly atmosphere in the place, pleasant staff, and a mixture of locals and people passing through. The decor is very cool and laid back with a woodburner in the bar.
Food was very good and the portion sizes were also generous (so many place locally aren't). We both had fish and chips and the fish was beautiful. Chips were not of the frozen variety (take note please local competitors). Not sure about the pea puree though as you cannot beat real mushy peas - but that is personal preference.
The real ales were absolutely spot on and much appreciated after a period of abstinence. The bill was sensible, unlike some of the competition locally, and we will definitely be back. Have been to other places locally recently and have been disappointed but the Sun Inn is excellent all round

Just wanted to leave a review to say how much of a fantastic job everyone at The Sun did yesterday for my husband and brother in laws birthday meal! There was 18 adults, 5 children and 3 babies and the service was faultless, they were very helpful and fulfilled all our requests! The food was excellent and no one was disappointed including the children! Was clean plates all round and everyone in the party was commenting on how delicious the food was, we are very lucky to have this pub on our doorstep and would recommend a visit to anyone!

Wanted to take my parents out for a thank you meal. We choose here as it had can recommended, we booked a table the day before so not to be disappointed. We arrived and were welcomed in by the warm log fires. We ordered out drinks at the bar and were taken to our table there was plenty to choose from on the meal, even my vegetarian wife said that she was spoilt for choice. When our meals arrived each one was beautifully presented and was lovely country pub food with the warm fires and the large array of real ales. This is an excellent pub.
