We are regular visitors to Coniston and have stayed at the black bull many times and once at the crown...The Sun is by far the worst!!! We have just returned from a 3 night break here with our springer spaniel! I booked by phone and was quoted £260 for the 3 nights inc the dog, by bar manager, Karl. When... More

Stopped here for lunch, food was ok but nothing special. My lamb sandwich was very fatty and a little tough. My partner had salmon salad which was slightly better but the salmon was very overlooked Nice views sitting outside and good beer. Staff a little lacking in personality however. It's a shame as the location and the decor inside is... More

Went here after a hike with family absolutely famished. Followed the signs and should have just retraced our steps. It was a very hot sunny day and there were no outside tables with any shade or umbrellas. After moving 2 decrepit picnic tables together under some trees, we ventured in to order. The menus were hard to find and on... More

Haven't eaten here for a while, after hearing good reports about the food we decided to give it a go. The service was fantastic, very friendly and prompt. We didn't have to wait very long before our food was served, the presentation was superb and the taste, even better! I had the chicken curry which was just perfect a slight... More

We recently stayed at The Sun and on the whole enjoyed our visit. The new chef is producing some excellent food and the Hotel is clean but needs decorating and the garden, especially some of the furniture needs attention.All the staff we met were very helpful and polite apart from the young man who was on duty when we arrived.He...

Returning from a walk in Coppermines valley, you naturally want a nice drink in the nearest pub, which is The Sun. The beer is good, but the garden furniture is dangerously rotten. The attached photo showed what happened to me! No law suit for compensation on this occasion, but it was a nasty shock when it collapsed under me. Though... More

Just returned from a 4 day break walking with 6 friends. Room and bathroom very spacious. Landlord, bar staff, waitresses and maid very friendly. Special mention to Nathan the new chef who had started 2 weeks previously who went out of his way to provide excellent off menu food for us. Items off the specials board I can recommend are:... More

This hotel was the worst place we stayed in in the uk. The bathroom was very grubby, there was mould all through the shower and the water glasses in the room had not been washed from the previous people! Went to turn on the shower and the hot water didn't work! The bed also had a funny smell. The owner... More
