The Sun Inn was being run as a Parlour Pub until 2009 when Flossie Lane who ran it died. Florence Lane was born in the pub in 1914 and had lived there all that time.
She ruled the pub and expected customers to pay their respects to her on arrival. If you passed muster you were poured a pint from a jug.
After Flossie Lane had a fall you could pour your own pint and were expected to put money into a jam jar.
Flossie Lanes death in 2009 led to a campaign to keep the Sun Inn as a Parlour Pub and this was also the wish of her niece’s.
This has been done successfully, with a modern extension.
The Parlour has been kept as it was, the wallpaper and carpets are the same. The pictures are still on the wall. The red brick room still has trestle tables and benches, great for eating off.
From 2006 Hobsons Brewery at Cleobury Mortimer supplied the beer. Locals beers are still a feature.
There is a modern extension at the back of the Sun Inn. It is light, airy and looks out on the garden where you can sit and drink and eat. There are events organised regularly, open Mike Nights and Quiz Nights among them.
It is well worth a visit and the journey out there is beautiful too.
