We loved this place.Our group consisted of 5 humans and 3 dogs all made welcome when we came for an evening meal. Bar area homely and attractive,with a beautiful old range as a focal point.A pair of perky locals explained the merits of the assortment of beers on offer.The food was tasty and well cooked and with generous portions.We would...

This Pub has the potential to be a really nice hotel but there has been no money or time spent. Staff are not bothered probably because they are not valued (the owner complained about having to pay towards their pensions!!). The room was a reasonable size but tired and tatty, the bathroom had a large corner bath with the side... More

Good value, unfussy accommodation, ideal for anyone planning a base for a few days walking in the Southern Lake District, situated at the foot of the Old Man of Coniston. Nice Pub (with Local Ales), Friendly Staff, Great Food, Lousy Weather (on this occasion!) CP

We were staying in a holiday let in Coniston last week. The four of us visited the Sun three times whilst we were there. The first time was after a long day's walking in the cold and rain and we were needing a sit down and a beer. The fire in the old type iron range was lit and it... More

Ate here in late February. On arrival there was a very basic A4 sheet for the entire menu inc starters and dessert. The choice of mains was unbelievably limited. The food was OK and the ale was good. Bar staff were efficient and the waitress (from Billingham?) was very pleasant.

I visited the Sun last weekend with two old friends, with a plan to do some walking and enjoy the outdoors. We were met with a warm welcome and the rustic, warm pub provided some fantastic local ales and delicious home made pies. We stayed in rooms upstairs. I would agree they need bringing up to date, but I have... More

The decor in the room , the bed and general cleaning were not what we have enjoyed previously. It's a lovely pub/ hotel but in need of some tlc and management changes. Will not be visiting... More

We stayed for three nights over Christmas. The room was OK (Room3) However the décor is a bit tired and curtain rail hanging off at one end. Only one bedside light. Bathroom good. Also we had to ask for the heating to be turned on as room was cold upon our arrival! Customer service is non-existent here! Generally it felt... More

This was supposed to be a relaxing couple of nights after difficult times (husband in hospital now having heart op). Far from it. Arrived to a dark and silent place. Given a key to a room still unmade from previous occupants. Went down and given another key - same thing happened. Down again, key this time to a freezing attic... More

Stayed for 4 nights and generally found it to be good value for money in a fantastic location. Beer and breakfasts great, plenty of hot water (although shower in room 4 not powerful enough). With a bit more attention to detail, this hotel could be brought up to the standard of a 4 star which it isn't at present. Decor... More
