Description: We love our new home here at the Sun Inn and we are thrilled to be a part of beautiful Chobham. We have retained all the cosiness of the historic old pub and added a wonderful new extension to house our brasserie where we serve French classics and British pub favourites..All cooked using fresh, seasonal ingredients. We have plenty of cosy nooks and comfy corners that you can while away the chilly winter days in, and with 5 log fires going you are sure of a warm welcome.Our garden is a veritable sun trap and perfect for leisurely lunches in the summer. We hope you will find time to pop in and see us for a beer in the bar or a bite in the brasserie. We look forward to meeting you.

Good morning Sarah,

Thank you for leaving such a lovely review.

At £11.95 for 2 courses, we agree that the set menu is great value for money! Don't forget that it changes every month so there is also a lot of variety.

We are glad you enjoyed your time with us and felt we provided good service in a relaxing environment. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards,
Kayley

I have just eaten here. I have eaten here regularly as I can bring my dogs and they do a good fixed priced menu. Today I ordered from the fixed price menu and ordered some bread to nibble on whilst waiting for my main course. The main course arrived ( very quickly ) before the bread. I was told there would be a further wait for the bread so I cancelled it, my reason for ordering it was to have as a pre amble to the main course. However I quickly wished I hadn’t cancelled it as my main course of cod on crushed potatoes was so tiny. If they advised customers that the portion is tiny, I would have ordered a side. The apple crumble dessert was nice, but the plate was so hot, I burnt my finger on it , whilst trying to move it around the charger. I think everything is ready in advance and just warmed up.
The staff apart from one nice barman don’t care here. I had to ask for cutlery and even a menu. I appreciate I was sitting in the bar ( with the dogs) and it is bar service, but one should be given cutlery before being handed the main course.
I don’t think I will be back. Prices are reasonable, but I would rather pay more and get better quality and better service. Try the White Hart if you are in Chobham or The Four Horseshoes. Both have much better food, and happier staff, and both accept dogs.

A nice casual lunch for the 6 of my friends and I, we all had food off the set menu, a mixture of the soup of the day and some nice beetroot and goats cheese lentil starter. Then we all had the steak frites, which was very nice and considering it was all for a price of 13.95 for 2 courses, this was great value and great food! Very pleased with our choices!

Unfortunately the service and tentativeness of the earlier lunch time staff/waitresses was not as great. We had to wait a quite bit longer than we expected too; asking questions about the menu, about the different menu’s available, general questions, in-between course for plates to be cleared, when we wanted some more drinks and then finally asking for the bill.
This was a shame because my friends and I have all been to the Sun Inn before and have received great service and continuously lovely food.
I hope the next time we come the service is a bit more tentative.

Driving through the area looking for somewhere to lunch and decided to give this place a try.

Friendly welcome and quickly shown to a table. We explain the we were heading for Heathrow to catch a flight and had limited time. Our waited was able to advise us which of the dishes could be served quickly and keep us on schedule.

We chose two courses from the set lunch menu, the soup was piping hot and very tasty and our mains were excellent. Promptly served and kept us on schedule.

Would like to visit again, with more time to enjoy the lively atmosphere.

Well worth a visit.
