A brilliant nights sleep - really quiet. Really friendly landlord & staff and great food. Gorgeous meal in the restaurant on sat night - beef &... More

We stayed at the Sun Inn which right in the centre of the village. The room was clean, tidy and with a four poster bed had an excellent nights sleep. The staff were very... More

We were greeted by the land lord who welcomed us and showed us to our room. The room was clean and modern but yet cosy and quaint. Lovely bathroom with red... More

We recently stayed at the Sun and had a fabulous stay the room was clean and comfy with some quirky features, the breakfasts were great with loads of optionsband really set you up for a day of walking. The managers couldn't do enough and were really friendly and helpfully. First vist but we will defiantly be back.

As the tile of this review suggests, we decided to ring in the New Year by doing something a little different to our usual house party or night at the local by driving to the Lake District with family and friends to ring in 2014. Overall we spent two nights at The Sun Inn and had the most amazing stay.... More

We enjoyed our short stay at the Sun Inn recently, though we were slightly disappointed that we couldn't have the four poster room that we had booked (there was an issue with the electrics in there, apparently) so we were given a family room, and a complimentary bottle of wine instead, to go with our evening meal. The room was... More

We come to Hawkeshead every year with our friends and have stayed at the Sun In three years running. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the staff are always friendly and helpful and there is a great atmosphere in the bar. The breakfast is really good but we were never impressed by the evening meals. This year we ate... More

Arrived cold wet and hungry. Sat next to the lovely roaring log fire, drinking mulled wine. Alex behind the bar explained we had missed the lunch menu but would be serving again at 6 so we went for a wonder around the very picturesque village and arrived back to have an amazing meal. All 4 of us chose different from... More
