Eat, drink and ...relax
The Sun Inn is all about great tasting food, exceptional beer and fine wine. Take a seat next to the bar and enjoy a relaxing drink, a laid-back afternoon tea or a leisurely pub lunch in front of a roaring fire. Or book at seat in our restaurant and enjoy an indulgent evening meal – whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a celebration with friends and family. In the summer, our covered courtyard, which is a natural suntrap and looks out onto our leafy garden, is the perfect place for delicious BBQ's and cooling spritzers. All of our facilities can be reserved for exclusive parties, business functions and special occasions.
Modern British food cooked with the best Scottish Ingredients
Each of the rooms at the Sun Inn have been individually styled and feature stunning wallpaper and furniture that was handmade by a local craftsman. Each room has a character all of its own, but they all provide a comfortable and luxurious space in which to relax and sleep. All our bedrooms have en-suite luxury bathrooms, complete with power showers and stocked with exclusive toiletries from Purdeys of Argyll. Among the other luxury touches you'll enjoy are Plasma T.V. with unrestricted satellite reception, a selection of DVDs and a Roberts DAB Radio. To help you get a sound night's sleep, you'll also find that each room boasts Hypnos luxury mattresses and high-thread-count Egyptian Cotton Bedding.
The award-winning food at the Sun Inn is best described as Modern British, prepared with expertise and imagination using the best available Scottish produce. The emphasis is on pub classics cooked to bring out the true flavours of the exceptional game, seafood and other raw ingredients we favour. Recent stand-out dishes include seared king scallops on hornigs black pudding, Borders beef cooked in red wine with baby onions and, for desert, a Tiramisu cheesecake with roasted coffee bean crème anglaise. A perennial favourite is our traditional Sunday lunch. This comprises a generous portion of roast leg of lamb with homemade Yorkshire pudding, dripping roast potatoes and real gravy. Come and eat your fill, then relax with the Sunday papers by the fire for the rest of the afternoon: Heaven!
The Best Beers and Wine
As an independent free house it is our aim to serve a good quality, ever-changing selection of local and regional cask ales. For example, we have the exceptional cask beers from Stewart Brewing on tap.
Stewart is one of Edinburgh's leading independent breweries. Our range of bottled beers features local favourites like Innis & Gun alongside many international star lagers and ales.
Our wine list is carefully chosen to provide the perfect complement for our food – of course they can all be enjoyed on their own too! The selection of our wines is a labour of love for our team, who work alongside the region's leading independent wine suppliers to bring you the best – from delicious, but inexpensive, house reds and whites up to a special vintages and champagnes to help you celebrate in style.
