Welcome

Built on land once owned by Henry VIII who gave it to the Earl of Ilchester, the surrounding farmlands are still owned by the Ilchester Estates. The Sun Inn is a 17th Century pub, which doubled as the blacksmiths at various times in the past. It is set in lovely Dorset countryside less than a mile from Dorchester on the Old Sherborne Road at Lower Burton.

Now a family owned Free House run by Shelley and staff, offering genuine hospitality with the emphasis on simple, but great food and drink. There is a new larger menu for this winter with an excellent selection, from sizzling Fajitas or Venison Sausages to Sirlion & Stilton Salad or chicken and avocado Ciabatta, an extensive vegetarian selection and lots more to run alongside the carvery and all 7 days a week. There are also the Chef's daily blackboard specials and a fine selection of wines by the glass there is something for everyone.

Ideal for both the sunny summer months with a great front courtyard, rear patio area and garden, which also has a play area for the children. In the winter the roaring log fires are alight every day to welcome and warm you. The pub has two large well-lit car parks, disabled access and families are welcome.
