perfect small village hotel for any great escape
Meet up with family. They drove from Norfolk and we drove from Lancashire, so Hook Norton looked a good half way place to meet. The sun Inn was perfect. Service & Food was excellent. Bedrooms were small but very well decorated and comfortable, with all the extras you could ask for. We enjoyed a stroll to their local brewery that had a steam engine in action. Then a pleasant walk around the area. Only advice we would suggest, whilst the virus is still around, book in advance any place of interest you want to see.

Fantastic Place!
I got there late so the kitchen was going to be closed when I arrived,the manager told me to ring in when I’m closer and they will have it ready for me. The Manager and staff are so nice,VERY warm welcome. Rooms were really nicely and so much choice for the breakfast in the very clean modern room. I would 100% stay here again! My photos don’t really do it justice!
