Probably about 300 years old, the attractive, stone-built Sun Inn stands on a corner in a quiet hamlet. Offa’s Dyke Path runs nearby on its 177-mile route from Sedbury Cliffs on the Severn estuary to Prestatyn. The Gartell family runs this pub very much as a convivial local, with darts, dominoes, regular quiz nights and Hobsons real ales from Cleobury Mortimer. It’s well respected as a dining venue, with the Gartells offering modern British dishes such as braised venison with liquorice, blackcurrant, parsnips crisps and red cabbage; Gressingham duck with pomegranate, molasses and sherry sauce; or butternut squash, sweet potato and peppers in a mild coconut curry.
