The former Sun and Doves recently kicked out its avian moiety to become simply The Sun. It's now ran by the Antic chain, who also hold dominion over the nearby Tiger — both sites tend to share the same beer rotations, and there's always something unusual on tap. As with many of the other Antic venues, the Sun has that shabby-chic half furnished look that makes for a cosy cup. There's plenty of room to spread out, with a spacious main bar, food-focussed back area and the big old beer garden round the back.
