The Sun Inn, Hook Norton
A cosy Cotswolds inn with seven rooms serving simple but top notch food and beers from the local Hook Norton Brewery. Fido's welcome too!
The Sun Inn is the pub that everyone wants in their village – cosy, cute, buzzy, brimming with history and great food.
The Cotswold inn is a favourite with the Hook Norton locals for drinks around the fire – beers from the village’s Hook Norton Brewery are, naturally, front and centre alongside continental brews, wine and cocktails.
There’s a cosy dining area for a sit-down affair and dog-friendly snug if you’ve brought pooch along. The menu covers just about every taste, from Smoked Mackerel Rillettes, Toasted Sourdough and Pickled Shallots or Bombay Potato Scotch Egg with Curried Mayo to start, to mains like Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger, Spicy Mayo, Slaw with Fries or your classic Hooky Beer Battered Fish & Chips and Crushed Peas with Tartar Sauce.
There’s classic puds like apple crumble and bakewell tart and a kids menu and the veggie and vegan options go way beyond the usual meagre selection you’d expect from a village pub.
With the Chipping Norton stomping ground on the doorstep, that’s the day’s excursions sorted, whether it’s walking, shopping or sipping that you’ve got in mind. Plus there’s Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh also nearby.
If you’re tempted by an overnighter, the pub’s 7 simple but immaculate bedrooms each have their own charms, from views over St Peters to blankets made with local wool and all rates include breakfast. There’s also one family room that sleeps four.
The classic Cotswold inn is part of the Free Spirit family of pubs that also has properties in Marsh Baldon and Edgehill in Oxon; Hellidon, Northants and Ladbroke in Warks.
