Commenting on the Award, Sally Balcombe, CEO of VisitBritain and VisitEngland said “It is a great achievement to win a Highly Commended Award in a field of very high quality applications. The Award places The Sun Inn in the top five businesses for excellence in their category in England. I warmly congratulate them on this achievement.”
The category was judged on the booking process, hospitality and service, services and facilities at the Inn, the promotion and communication of dog friendly services, and finally the quality, comfort and ease of use. Overall the judge was impressed by our enthusiasm towards dogs, stating that it made owners feel at ease. He also commented upon his dining experience as it was added to by the fact he was able to enjoy dinner with his dogs and that “the food offering here is a big part of the overall experience”. The judge also appreciated the area in which we are situated, and the excellent opportunities for dog owners that it provides. He also found the dog and boot shower at the Sun Inn to be thoughtful- and a necessity!
