“overall very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

went for a meal at rickys, i didnt book a table but it was no problem for them to fit me in. we ordered straight away & didnt have to wait too long. our meals arrived but about 5mins apart so when my partners arrived she was told she couldnt have the roast potatoes as ordered so what did she want as a replacment she asked for a jacket spud not realising that we would have to wait for them to microwave it. when it arrived it was slightly under-cooked & the texture of the skin was not what you expext for an american steak house. there was no offer of a steak knife for me which you would expect when eating a steak, i did get one when i asked for one. overall the food was good.

“Always a good bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

It's quite rare to find an independent American pub or restaurant and this is cracking for most occasions. We go regularly for a Burger and Sweet Potato fries and is the go to place for a relatively quick nosh. The steaks are great but I always struggle to order anything other than a burger. If you are in a group the sharing platter is a winner. The service has always been up to scratch for me, so I'm not sure quite what some of the other reviews are inferring.

There is something for everyone in here, the only slight limitation is a narrow selection of ales, but then it is an American style pub and they have some great American bottled beer.

“Terrible service, not what it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Thought would visit tonight, as normally service very good, & excellent value for money, upon arrival we were greeted by the manager? Asked what we would like to drink & if we were eating, sat down at a table & was promptly asked our drinks order, which arrived shortly afterwards, as i hadnt decided what i was eating, i ventured over to the specials boar & returned to my table, the girl who served our drinks was was walking around, & after about 10 minutes managed to grab her attention, she took my order, i noticed most the staff were standing around chatting including the manager? All but one young blonde girl, who was rushed off her feet? My meal arrived & at best was warm, not hot, i noticed the table opposite returned one meal, i decided against better judgement to order a dessert, after holding the menu for at least 20 minutes, i eventualy grabbed the managers attention & took my order, the chocolate sunde was dissapointing, as there was little chocolate icecream? I have been to the Sun many times, & have never left feeling so dissapointed

“Loved the fab food and attentive service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

OH and me had a fabulous dinner at the Sun Inn. We both love eating steaks and we were not disappointed. Eating steak can be a daunting experience here in UK (most of the times the meat you get in restaurants and pubs are as thin as the sole of a dolly shoe), but the Sun Inn served us very good quality and tasty food, nice thick cut and huge portion. I think the food we had was excellent value for money and we will definitely return. Great dining experience, without the need of splashing a ridiculous amount of cash, really happy we went :)

Good American food with large portions. Made to feel very welcome by the owners and I thought the price was very reasonable.
