Sun InnRosemary Lane
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A remarkable pub with a remarkable history: as one of Britain's last 'parlour' pubs, it survived following a successful CAMRA-led "Save the Sun" campaign back in 2009. The original basic public room features benches; a simple fireplace; ticking clock, and gentle conversation. The other front room is the parlour where ex-landlady of 74 years, Flossie, once held court. A blue plaque on the pub’s facade today commemorates her stewardship. To the rear is a well-designed modern pavilion-style extension, overlooking the delightful garden, which doubles as venue for a beer festival held each August Bank Holiday Sun. Quiz night on first Tuesdays of month and folk session second Thursdays. Food consists of light lunches (12-2.30 daily) and fish and chips ordered from the shop next door and eaten in the parlour.
