The service was also very efficient - and friendly (makes a huge difference).Hi chrisbatt,Thank you for this cool review.

The Sun Inn

In the heart of Dedham, The Sun Inn has been a watering hole for villagers and resting post for travellers for centuries. These days, it’s much the same. An ideal spot to revive yourself be it with a pint of craft beer, a meal using fine East Anglian prod

This is one of my favourite pub restaurants and has been for some time. I love the old building and chilled atmosphere, and the lounge with comfy chairs and settees is a favourite.I took a friend yesterday for an evening meal for his birthday. We both had starters. Mine was crispy eggs which was nice enough. His main was fish and mine sirloin steak. The steak was OK but not great and his was the same, but the veg were fresh and nicely cooked. The puddings were a bit limited too. Service as very good. Overall not too bad an experience but not remarkable

Our first visit was for an evening meal and both the chowder starter and sea bream main were very tasty, well presented and good value. Service was very friendly and efficient. The chef's presentation of the meals is better than average and thankfully everything came in/on crockery rather than a piece of slate / wood / whatever the fad is this week - well done! We came back for drinks on two other days and sat in the grounds overlooking the waterfront - idyllic. We'd certainly go back for food and or just drinks. Recommended.

First visit when viewing houses in the area.We booked lunch, rustic country interior, polite and helpful staff.The roast beef and lamb lunches were on the expensive side over £16, and the meat portions could have been larger, however the potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding, veg and gravy were delicious. Good selection of beer, the house Red was acceptable at a reasonable price.Worth a visit.
