user reviews of the Sun Inn, Hungerford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This is on the main drag of the A4 and I couldn't believe it was virtually empty on a Bank Holiday Monday lunchtime, when 5 coachloads of Merthyr Town soccer fans had driven past, en route to a game at the Hungerford Town FC ground, which is admittedly at the other side of town.
Certainly less pretentious than all but one of the other Hungerford town centre pubs. (Though not as unpretentious as the Borough Arms in the High Street. Could almost have been in Reading. I'm amazed there isn't a bylaw against pool tables in Hungerford.)
This isn't exactly a dive. In most towns it would be seen as a moderately upmarket establishment. Hungerford isn't most towns, though. There's a newish Italian pub/pizzeria, La Primavera, just the other (eastern) side of the mini roundabout on the A4, from The Sun Inn but that wasn't exactly rammed either. The Bear Hotel across the street, with its riverside garden, was well populated.
Anyhow, in The Sun Inn a pint of Greene King IPA was decent enough, as was a pint of Hardy & Hanson's Kimberley. The establishment also had Old Speckled Hen on tap, though the Old Golden Hen badge on that pump was turned around.
What little food I saw being served looked OK.
This is an official England Rugby pub, so the barman going on about soccer is poor form. However, there's very little wrong with this as pubs on main drags go and it's worth a quick pint if you're passing through.

It may be a bit more downmarket compared to some other pubs in Hungerford, but it's all the better for it. Give me something like this over a trendy gastro-pub/hotel bar anyday!
