Pub of the Week - The Sun Inn

The Sun Inn, York Road

There has been a public house on or near the site of the present Sun Inn since 1767, although back then the pub was called The Three Cranes.

The Sun, as we know it today, is ideal for all the family, the basis of which was laid in 2003 with a huge influx of development cash amounting to over £400,000.

The resultant hostelry proved once and for all that the prime requisite for any good pub is location, location, location.

That might be the case with houses but pubs need much more and The Sun has all the extras.

The kids will be kept occupied with the children’s play area and adults can relax in the beer garden or on the patio - bring on the sunshine!

Pub food is served daily until late and a function room catering for large groups is the perfect place to celebrate.

It’s a friendly and welcoming Marston’s house under manager Jeannie Harper.

Perhaps the only thing that people can’t agree on is what it’s really called. Old habits die hard and regulars continue to call it The Sun Inn, while the modern trend is to visit The Sun, which is what it’s actually called - funny old world innit?

Whatever you call it, there can’t be many more pleasant places to bide awhile and enjoy a drink and a nibble.
