In the heart of Dedham, The Sun Inn has been a watering hole for villagers and resting post for travellers for centuries. And these days, it’s much the same, an ideal spot to revive yourself be it with a pint of craft beer, a meal using fine East Anglian produce or a good night’s sleep.

Independently owned and run since 2003, you’ll be looked after by a well-established team of professional individuals.

With a proper bar and an open dining room, a snug oak panelled longue and three open fires, exposed timbers, thick beams and meandering floors, it’s easy to be cossetted in this ancient inn.

In the shadow of St Mary’s Church tower, a terrace to admire our Elizabethan staircase, a walled garden to let kids and dogs loose, to sit back and ponder a route to the cottage of Willy Lot.

Indulge in food influenced by season, locally sourced and convivially served. An ideal spot for craft beer, stout and cider, eclectic wine, games and natter. Mulled wine at Christmas, cocktails whatever the hour, Elderflower or Gooseberry presse, spicy ginger beer and well stocked snacks hot from the kitchen.

Sun Inn also offers accommodation. See here for more information.
