What can i say, i was expecting greatness after the reviews and recommendations - how wrong i could be. There was a restricted menu on the day i went so not much to choose from. On the face of the menu i thought they were trying too hard to impress and the menu came across arrogant and complicated with some... More

The Sun Inn is an exceptionally friendly, warm and well run place with a relaxed but lively atmosphere. The food is very good but the service can be intermittently slow (our main course in particular took ages). I would also recommend requesting a room which does not overlook the street as there is quite a loud pub opposite (though I... More

We are regular visitors to the Sun Inn and always receive a very warm welcome. Our room was excellent and the food first class. Mark, Lucy and their team continue to maintain the highest standards, whether it's the full English breakfast or the dinner menu. We will be back because the Sun Inn is one of those places you don't... More

This establishment just keeps on getting better. We booked a table for dinner at 8.30pm one evening. Due to travel problems, we couldn't get there until 9pm. The staff were so accommodating - nothing was too much trouble including ordering our meal at 9.30pm. Excellent food. Also so dog friendly with treats, bowl and towel provided in our room. Many...

We stayed in the Sun Inn for a night recently and wished we could have stayed much longer! The warmth of the welcome we were given was wonderful and the overall atmosphere of this very special inn was fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious (much better than our previous nights` experience in a more famous old inn not far away... More

We had a lovely two night stay recently with our wee dog. We were all made to feel very welcome and there was a lovely welcome pack for our dog. The room was stunning as was the food and in a very central location. We can't wait for our next visit!

I have known the Sun for many years, since I used to drink in there as a sixth former, so I was well aware before this trip of its very convenient location on the main street in Kirkby Lonsdale. I had not been in the Sun for about a decade however, and was immediately impressed by the décor and 'feel'... More

We had been told how good the Sun Inn was, but it was actually better. The standard of accommodation, food and staff was tremendous. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, everything was perfect. Even after we checked out, we were offered complimentary tea or coffee in the bar - nice touch that some of the leading...

Thank you ever so much for trying us for yourselves, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Tea & coffee on tap is one of those little things that I know I would lap up if I was to stay some where.. it is the little things that make the difference. We look forward to looking after you again.... More

We loved this Inn - the welcome, the decor, the food, the staff and the room. We shall return. (The only negative for us were the many dogs in the rooms, bar and restaurant. We understand the bar but strongly believe that dogs should not be allowed elsewhere no matter how well behaved. How about constructing heated kennels outside?).
