Everything about The Sun Inn is faultless – from the long and leafy country road that leads to its understated exterior, to the exquisite food and inviting pub atmosphere. It’s little wonder this place won Gastropub of the Year in The Scottish Hotel Awards in 2017.

The Sun Inn delivers unpretentious, locally sourced food that’s put together with real flair and finesse. The team’s passion for the food is in evidence on every plate, and the smiling faces of bustling and attentive staff make the whole experience a special one.

We 6 bedrooms baked bread, aioli and olives before moving on to a starter of seared scallop, crispy pork belly and cauliflower purée. It was simply sublime and demonstrative of the kitchen team’s culinary alchemy. For my main course I delved into saddle of wild rabbit, wrapped in Parma ham and glazed with prune jus, served with candied carrot.

It was a rich dish, evocative of springtime – safe to say that it was such a triumph, not one crumb remained afterwards. My companion thoroughly enjoyed the John Gilmour 10oz rib-eye steak, declaring it enormously satisfying. Recent refurbishments have seen the addition of a lovely coffee shop which is open every day from 8am until 4pm, while the new outside decking dining area is the perfect spot for an al fresco drink or light bite overlooking the River Esk. The Sun Inn sets the bar high for delicious seasonal cuisine – anyone who visits this eatery will come away raving about it.
