We visited the Sun on a recommendation, booked a table in the bar, just in case! It took some time to get through to the Inn on our mobile, we assumed they were quite busy. When we arrived, there was one table occupied in the restaurant and no other customers. We ordered from the specials board, whilst I enjoyed a... More

We've all done the long day out in the Lakes: We were staying in Kendal. Having 'done' the long day and wanted to have an (early) evening meal on the way back, we happened upon the Sun Inn. We could have stopped at an earlier establishment about half a mile back, but the big tourer bus that we'd being following... More

What a find. My wife and I must have passed the Sun Inn on our way home from Windermere on dozens of occasions, but never called in for a meal. On this occasion, we did. The quality of the food was excellent. I had the duckling in brandy and cherry sauce; my wife had the steak and dumplings. Not a... More

Having stumbled across this pub whilst staying nearby, my husband his brother and our sister in law needed somewhere to eat on our first evening in Windermere and found The Sun Inn. We were not disappointed with the food, size of portions, service or real ales! Staff very friendly, we couldn't fault the food as we have now eaten here... More

Great place to start a holiday break! Sunday lunch delicious. Beef and lamb melted in our mouths. Excellent value for money and friendly service. Would stop here again!

Stayed in one of the cottages nearby to the Sun Inn in Crook Cumbria (near Bowness) so went for a meal there one night. Pub was nice enough and the service okay but the food was below par. The main were passable but the sweet was terrible. My wife had a apple pie that was not cooked properly (pastry tasted... More

Picked this pub for a slap up lunch to celebrate the end of a superb three days walking in the Lakes. Sadly it was a big disappointment, especially having bypassed so many other enticing looking pubs on our walks, we would have been better off with our accustomed picnic lunch! Super heated cannelloni scalded one of our party, whilst scraggy... More

It may look a little dated but that is all part of the character of a good old traditional pub! Two adults and 4 children all enjoyed our meals. Quality of food was excellent, service friendly, value very good. We will go back again later this week and hopefully it will all be as good as it was first time... More

We stayed at the campsite up the road from this little Hamlet so naturally The Sun was our first stop and sign of civilisation. Food is lovely and reasonably priced. Cask ales also lovely. Friendly staff buzzing around all the time. No wonder it was so busy on a week day in a fairly remote locale.

We found this wonderful Inn purely by chance driving on a quiet back road. Great atmosphere and attentive service. Venison was really yummy, veggies delicious and the salmon was OK. I recommend the fruit pudding for dessert! Such a relief getting away from the crowds around Lake Windermere.
