The Sun Inn, an old coaching inn, as well as hosting events during the Jazz festival, also has a weekly ‘open mike’ evening and a monthly jazz night. Situated at the west end of Marlborough’s wide and impressive High Street, the historic Sun Inn would have been one of the first such coaching inns that London-bound coaches encountered when entering the town. The inn can trace its history back to the 15th century and has a lovely secluded garden which is a haven in summer. Today, the Sun Inn offers a warm welcome to all, offering accommodation, food, and of course drinks.
