All round great stay for three nights. Staff very friendly, room clean & tidy, breakfast excellent. Wonderful picturesque views, good location & very dog friendly. Short stroll to other pubs with food if you feel the need.

A lovely place in Coniston to have a meal or drink, with stunning views. It was an oasis, a short walk from the roadside pubs and noises traffic.

Lovely food and friendly staff in a beautiful location. There is a sports area up the gallery which my teenage son loved because we were able to play pool and have the Olympics on at the same time.

The Sun is at the back of Coniston village. We went for a drink and light lunch on a wet Sunday. We could take our dog into the bar, which is always a plus. Good cask ales. Log fire very welcome on a cold wet day.

Had lunch at this wonderful pub/hotel. We were able to park our car over night for a small fee, which was great as we were wild camping. The food was great and delicious and portions were great! Staff were very friendly and helpful! Will be back again.

We popped in here after climbing the Old Man of Coniston, for a post climb cider and its a lovely little pub with plenty outdoor sitting, decent prices and friendly staff.

It nestles at the base of the Old Man of Coniston. It is bigger than you might think as round the back is a small hotel. However, it is quietly on the margin of the village ideally placed for a celebratory pint when you get back from your climb. It has a good selection of local beers

After a long day of climbing we went here for dinner. It was quickly served and tasted quite good! + Dogs are allowed + Good food + Not too expensive + Seats outside - Sticky tables

Thank Luuxter
