We would definitely recommend The Sun. The landlady Sharon couldn't do enough for us, she made sure that all of our needs were met. We were made to feel so welcome and the young lady called Gemma behind the bar served us had fabulous customer service which makes a difference as we have witnessed bad service in the lakes before...

We called in at the bar recently, but we're very dismayed at the attitude of the staff and the quality of beer. Three bar staff and only one other customer, but still took 10 mins to get served. My beer was off and my wife's tea was stewed. No one was interested. This once iconic hotel is in need of... More

Visited for dinner on Saturday 25th July 2015. Pub wasn't busy but we're told at 7.30pm we would have to wait an hour for food. Had already bought drinks so had little choice but to stay. Food arrived at 8.45pm. £12.95 for a very dried out Cumberland sausage, watery mash potato (with some lumpy bits) and a tiny portion of... More

After making a special visit to this establishment at 5.15pm on a weekday evening, we were very surprised and disappointed that they were not able to serve us hot chocolate because the machine was being cleaned out. Our disappointed was further added to when, rather than being apologetic, the member of bar staff seem to take some glee in our... More

Must be the worst place in the lake district. Avoid at all cost there are numerous nicer friendlyer locations to chose. The staff were rude unhelpful. What food we did get took nearly an hour some of which was sent back and refunded

Arrived on a Thursday evening, staff were hospitable and helpful. Out early on Friday but an early breakfast was arranged for me and in the evening we had a wonderful meal on the terrace. Being in a central location, this is a popular spot but staff made sure that, as residents, we were attended to promptly. Portions were a good... More

Extremely loud and brass landlady, staff and locals. Rude staff at the bar, when coming in as a large group the owner told the bar staff to turn off the wifi so we could not use it, only after spending over £50 did she agree to put the wifi back on! The waitresses were unhospitable and everything we asked seemed... More
