Always call in to the Sun when in Coniston as it's always a good pint and dogs are welcome. Plenty of seating outside on a sunny day and bar is welcoming with an open fire if weather is bad

On arrival of the food, there was no coleslaw or crisps to which we questioned both to be told "I don't think they do come with... More

Having enjoyed a few hours on Coniston water this pub rounded the day off nicely. A good selection of beers & one of the best views from a pub garden I have ever seen!
