After a late fell walk stopped at The Sun for a Pub meal as it was the nearest and the parking is easy. Should have taken note of the lack of customers on a sunny Sunday evening ! Long wait for food - not a bad sign but... Mushroom Strogonoff was not good - whole mushrooms in a non-creamy saucy,... More

Sign says -"Well Worth the Walk" and "best food in the village" Overpriced boil in the bag would taste bester than the chicken curry which was acidic, entirely vegetable free and overcooked. My companion had the Hunter's Chicken - minimal veg, probably frozen and dry, dry dry chicken! The only saving grace was the lovely waitress. Oh - and the... More

A very good selection of local beers for the Real Ale enthusiast. We had meals sitting outside in the early evening having finished a long walk around the Old Man, Swirl How and Wetherlam. Great location (views), friendly place, and good food.

sadly the sign in the village told us it was worth a walk up the hill, over cooked chicken curry without basic vegetables awful, the only saving grace was the waitress she was great

Visited on a lovely sunny evening, most people were sat outside, the inside was empty but is quite dark inside, the bar was surrounded by noisy locals which meant you had to squeeze in to order drinks. A lot of the tables were still covered in empty glasses and plates. I had the chicken curry which a joke more like... More

Me and my partner had a day trip to Coniston and landed at the sun hotel. We ventured in and was surprised by the oldie world décor which I really like, ok I know its not to everyone's liking. We decided to stay and have dinner. I ordered the scallops which were delicious with an home made pesto, very different... More

Reading the other reviews about the excellent food, I could almost be led to believe we had eaten in a different pub. the only piece of advice I would give fellow visitors is, if you want to eat over-priced boil in the bag food, then this is the place to visit. prior to our visit we had researched places to...
