Arrived after being referred by the drunken duck hotel. Good rate with a good room. The shower glass wall was awkward to get around and the toilet made noises throughout the night. Dinner and breakfast was really good.

Great pub to stay at when visiting Hawkshead stayed for 3 nights and ate there every night and the food was superb especially the fish and chips and a bonus for the weekend we were there was a beer festival in the village with live bands will definitely be going back to the Sunn next time we visit Hawkshead

Welcoming and friendly staff. Food OK but much, much better in the pub next door. Rooms OK, décor tired and in need of some TLC but who cares when you've had a skin-full after a great day's walking? From a cost perspective a bit expensive for what you get but compared to the prices of the other watering holes/digs in... More

The tartre sauce was homemade and the best I've ever had it had a bit of coriander in it! Mums burger was top notch fancy with black sticks blue cheese on... More

Myself and my partner loved our weekend away at Sun Inn. The pub seems to be a favourite in the village and you can certainly see why. The menu provides great choice and the food was fantastic. The bedrooms are nicely done out - they seem modern but in a really country way and I loved that!! The only downside... More

We have just returned from a fantastic 10 night stay at the Sun Inn. The rooms are cosy, clean and homely.

The staff at the Sun... More
