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

Visited on a uni mapping trip to get a Sunday lunch - absolutely delicious food but took over 10 minutes at an almost empty bar to get served... Wifi got turned off when we walked in and only turned back on after ordering and paying for food and drinks. Food was delivered quickly and was great but whole meal ruined... More

Visited the sun twice for evening meal in June 2015, excellent location at the foot of the old man, great views great seating areas. The food was gorgeous we had the pork belly and the lamb and pear pie, the next night we had starters and drinks.

Nicely located but poor service and average food. Had to wait ages for service at bar followed by a further agonising wait for the food. Veg very over cooked. Tables being set for breakfast whilst still sat at table. Will not be returning. Ship Inn much more welcoming and better food.
