Tis the Season to eat and be merry

The days are getting darker, shorter & colder which can only mean one thing – the holidays are coming! Autumn is such a beautiful time, it is the season to enjoy a bottle of Argentinean Malbec by the roaring log fire, find comfort in an array of stunning seasonal dishes & enjoy cosy nights at your village local laughing away with friends & family. We know it’s not Christmas quite yet, but there are so many joyous things to look forward to in the run up to December – Curry Night, Halloween, Bonfire Night and we simply can’t wait to get you all involved!

We will be celebrating national curry week on Wednesday 24th October from 6pm-9pm and what better way to cosy up in this chilly weather? We will have a selection of curries available on the night, be sure to book your spot to avoid disappointment.

Furthermore, we have started taking Christmas bookings – be it for your annual family get together or your work Christmas Bash. We have a delicious Christmas Menu available alternatively; we also have a festive ‘party’ menu for bigger groups. Spots are filling up fast to enquire further, email us on info@thesuninn-hooknorton.co.uk

August isn’t quite over yet!

We’re soaking up what’s left of summer and undoubtedly have a few dates that you simply don’t want to miss out on here at The Sun (so get your diaries at the ready!)

We are well known here for our delicious Longhorn Beef Burger served with twice cooked chips and tomato chutney (dreamy) as such, we have jumped at the chance to get involved with National Burger Day. Join us on Thursday 23 rd August from 6pm to enjoy a delicious variety of different burger options (all served with chips of course!) Booking advisable.

We will be joined by The Folly Brothers on Friday 24th August, a bluegrass duo consisting of Brothers Mark Roden, Jonny Roden & Wes Stanton. This talented bunch from Leamington Spa will be playing from 8pm, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes! The August Bank Holiday weekend is going to be a real corker, with our Garden Party on Saturday 25th August set to be a busy one. With face painting, live music and a delicious food menu all available – there will be something there to suit everyone.

August isn’t quite over yet folks – be sure to pencil the dates in! For any more information call us on 01608 737570.

Let the evening Be-GIN!

With the month of April looming, the time for Gin is nigh & we have recently launched a fabulous new gin menu here at The Sun Inn. Gin is the reigning champion of summer for a good reason; it’s light, botanical & blends easily with all sorts! We prefer to pair all of our spirits with Fever-Tree Premium Mixers, all of which have been crafted to enhance the taste of the finest spirits.

We certainly offer a few unique gins, our Warner Edwards Honeybee Gin being a classic example. A floral & zesty gin infused with honey for a luscious sweet finish this gin paired with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic is the ultimate refresher. We undoubtedly have a few other names on the list that may get your cogs turning – Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin, Sibling Gin, Poetic License Fireside Gin, Bathtub Gin – & many more!

There’s no other way to know than to pop in & see for yourself – Gin O’clock on the hour every hour!

Nailing Sunday Lunch

Local ales, cosy sofas & exceptional food make for the perfect Sunday lunch – or so we believe! Sunday Lunch is such a huge part of British Culture, dating back to the 1700s – it’s undoubtedly the perfect excuse to get the family together or to meet with friends & chat over a long, leisurely meal. At the Sun Inn, we know how to honour this long-standing tradition with lashings of home-made gravy, monstrous Yorkshire puddings & servings of delicious cauliflower cheese. Our beef & pork are sourced locally from the Hook Norton Butchers itself and are cooked to perfection by our chef patron, Matthew.

Those smaller details never go a miss – we’ll keep you topped up with our creamy homemade horseradish, apple sauce, crackling & crispy roast potatoes. Every Sunday, we offer 2 courses for £21 & (if you’re feeling brave enough) 3 courses for £26, an even better excuse to indulge in one of our sticky date puddings or a chocolate marathon for those with bigger appetites!

So cosy up with us for Sunday lunch, now available from midday until 4pm.
