We had an enjoyable late lunch today, Easter Sunday. Food enjoyable, service friendly. Was a bit slow but excused as the place was very busy. food beautifully presented. Table by the kitchen not ideal as a bit noisy and we got the kitchen fumes. However I really appreciate that the staff changed our booking to accommodate an extra person.

Fantastic nights sleep despite being close to main road thanks to the comfy bed and spotlessly clean room. Food delicious specifically the mussels in white wine and cream sauce which were a great portion and the haddock was really tasty. Only minor issue with TV remote but the staff were willing to fix quickly, only improvement would be to pop... More

I am a regular at The Sun Inn and went in yesterday with my friend for a mid week catch up. They offer a fantastic early bird menu from 6-7pm, 3 courses £14. We stayed until 10pm (closing time) and this was not a problem. The food is ethically and locally sourced and tastes amazing. I always feel I have... More

I don't think i prefer anything more than a log fire on a cold afternoon, so as we entered the delightful Sun Inn, I was in paradise. The decor and atmosphere of the place is rustic and elegant, and that fire. The service at 16:00 for a high tea was first class, warm and welcoming, just like the fire. Nice... More

My husband and I had to stay overnight in Scotland, preferably on the main carriageway in and out of Edinburgh. I found this place quite by accident, and so glad I did. All I wish to do is confirm that the reviews of the food in this Gastro Pub are "bang on". Wow !!! If you ever have the good... More
