Visited the Sun for dinner last night. The atmosphere was lively with happy walkers fresh off the fells. Despite being very busy the staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. We placed our food order and enjoyed the laughter and banter of our fellow diners and drinkers. After 45 minutes wait we asked the bar staff if they knew why...

There was a small confusion with our order... we were not concerned, but all the staff were. Never has a tiny mistake been more been more thoroughly made up for. Clearly great customer commitment and a sense of ownership. .... the food and wine are pretty fabulous too. Add in log fires and happy hubbub... we will be back .

Dropped in for an evening meal. Delicious contemporary pub grub, salt and pepper whitebait followed by steak and ale and chicken and leek pies. Beers very well kept, selection of 8 local ales, with the choice of a 3 1/3 pint taster board. Staff were wonderful, friendly and very helpful. Fully recommend a visit.

We spent a lovely evening in here, choice of several real ales, fantastic steak and ale pie, halloumi kebab was excellent vegetarian option. Great service from very friendly staff. Cosy atmosphere with log fires and candlelit tables. We were able to take our dog too. Hope to be back soon. Good job!

Stopped off in this pub after our walk over the old man. Was met at the bar by a lovely young lady named Gemma. Drink was very good and not priced too bad either. Gemma however was amazing....and beautiful

We'd heard about The Sun @ Coniston from friends of ours who had eaten Sunday lunch the week previous and absolutely loved it so we thought it worth a try! 3 guys for a quick lunch, we had the lamb kebab, chicken kebab and the beef burger. All three meals were absolutely delicious and great value for money. Not food...

We had to fantastic two meals here after a day's walking. Lovely country pub with very attentive staff. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a friendly atmosphere and some great food that is good value for money. Sunday roast was divine.

Thank you for your fantastic comment "one of the most beautiful pubs" we try to treat all our customers the same and find your comment about not being local unfair, we have many now regulars that aren't local that return time after time. Our land lord doesn't have a BNP badge so not sure why this comment has been made...
