“A local review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

We've eaten at The Sun Inn six times this year, and on every occasion the food has been excellent and piping hot. The wine is most acceptable, the beers are top quality and the waitresses polite and efficient. We eat out regularly and expect quality. This place delivers! Excellent value for money, it's a pleasure to support one of our local establishments. Instead of dining at the expensive, pretentious Lake District restaurants, dine at The Sun Inn. You won't be disappointed!

“nice Pub in nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

My wife & I visited this pub a few days ago on visit to the Lake district. The staff are really friendly. The food portions - massive & delicious.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a traditional country pub with good food

“Don't leave the Windermere area without visiting the Sun Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

The staff at the Sun Inn are lovely; most of them appear to have worked there a long time which is usually a good sign. There is usually a selection of frothy 'real' beers to choose from, the menu is extensive and uses only local produce. The Lamb Henry is superb...! Not cheap and not too expensive, the Sun Inn is both suitable for couples or groups and Gill is always very accommodating. I live locally and know many 'locals' who make very good use of the place...! There is outdoor seating at the front of the Inn and the outlook is lovely, but be aware that it is situated on a main though not overly busy road that eventually takes you past Windermere Golf Club and into Bowness.

“A hidden gem away from the Bowness crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

This unassuming pub is a real gem, boasting a great range of real ales and very good homemade food (with no evidence of Brake Brothers re-heats!). We were recommended to eat here by a local farmer who described it as serving ‘proper portions’ (for this read enormous) at affordable prices. His assessment couldn’t have been more accurate.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

I hope I am on the correct restaurant page here. We ate t the Sun Inn in Crook in the lake district twice during our four day stay because it was just so good. We wish we could visit here regularly from our home in Australia! The atmosphere is lovely, the service excellent and the food among the very best we ate during our four weeks in England. W would go back any time. Highly recommend the duck or lamb. If you are vegetarian, the mushroom stronghanoff is delicious. Great pub. It's about 8 minutes drive out of Bowness.
