Lovely country pub

Food good smaller plates than last year but it helps leave space for the fab puddings! Cosy pub with staff who are attentive and want to see you having a great time there.

Visited the Sun last night with my husband. We were the only ones there for the first 30 mins and then a group of 3 arrived. Very strange when the other pubs we had passed were packed! It was curry night so we thought it would be the safest option to go for that and order the Chicken Tikka. If... More

we had a voucher 2 for 1 for lunch. Prior to ordering we checked 3 times about what the voucher included. Having been told we could have 2 courses off Golden Oldies menu, we ordered a starter and main course. After eventually receiving and eating our starter, the owner came out and said he couldn't afford that offer, so we... More

Welcoming country pub with pleasant, smart staff. Still retains a pub feel after a lovely refurb. Have only stopped for drinks before but decided to call in for lunch and were not disappointed. Good quality and good portions washed down with a decent pint and glass of wine. Look forward to returning for an evening meal or Sunday roast soon!

We went to the Sun on a Saturday night in July. We were offered a table straight away. We (both men) had two pints of real ale and the girls shared a bottle of wine. We ordered one suet meat pie and three half chickens. The chicken was very small and over cooked and very dry.The suet pudding on the... More

We always stopped her for a superb meal (past 15 years) on our way home from Lakeland and after the referb we were very disappointed at the change of menu and the loss of the country inn feel. The quality and portions presented and the excellent menu have gone and it feels more like a Bistro than a country pub.... More

Its taken a little while since taken over by new owners but the Sun Inn has finally got it spot on. We had the Sunday roast - which they are offering at a special price for 2 or 3 course between 3 and 5 pm. Both the Lamb and beef were nicely presented, a good portion size and very tasty.... More

Visited the Sun Inn twice whilst staying at my father in laws caravan just down the road. Staff very friendly & polite, We had a meal on our second night which was absolutely gorgeous. Both myself and husband thoroughly enjoyed the food. Will definitely visited again and recommend to anyone out in the Lakes.
