The Common, Dunsfold, GU8 4LE

Capturing the very essence of a traditional village pub, The Sun Inn is a true gem. Enjoying an enviable location on the Dunsfold village green in the heart of the Surrey countryside, this 18th-century establishment epitomises all that you would expect from an exemplary British pub. Rustic decor resonates throughout and authentic wooden furniture complements the olde-worlde character beautifully. Open fires evoke long winter evenings spent in the company of friends, while the outside tables conjure up idyllic images of hazy summer afternoons relishing cold beers while watching local cricket matches. A custom-built marquee adjoining the pub provides a stunning wedding venue.

Welcomed by the amiable manager and seated in a cosy corner of the bar area, we were immediately absorbed in the heartening hum of local banter and feeling very much at home. The new head chef behind The Sun Inn’s gastronomy is clearly passionate about the food he cooks, sourcing ingredients locally and producing an honest menu that showcases a range of dishes. Famous for his homemade sausages, he is rightly proud of his butchery skills; the sausage and mash is almost always a sell-out dish.

Dishes on the menu boast the winning combination of refreshing simplicity and quality ingredients, and classic pub staples, such as honey-roasted ham, chips, peas with two free-range eggs, as well as the Aberdeen Angus steak burger, need no introduction. Perfectly balanced by the addition of more contemporary plates that include the likes of beetroot and goat’s cheese tortellini with creamed peas and glazed onion, the menu is unashamedly down to earth.

Standing out on the starter menu, the chicken and black pudding terrine served with tangy, vibrant piccalilli is a winner, and the salt and pepper calamari also delivers on flavour. A tempting selection of delicious desserts includes the tantalising mini chocolate and hazelnut doughnuts served with locally made velvety vanilla ice cream and a delectable sticky toffee pudding that packs a sumptuously sweet and delightfully decadent punch.

Hosting regular Pie and Pudding nights as well as other celebratory occasions, this wonderful country pub, with its well stocked bar featuring local ales from Tillingbourne Brewery, offers exceptional value for money. A genuinely friendly-family pub, The Sun Inn also welcomes well-behaved doggies and is a favourite with walkers.
