You get to know what you should be paying for the same round of drinks in different places and the Sun is way over the norm that you may expect. I can understand any business trying to make the best of an income during the summer season but the Lakes is now 365 days a year. Why then pay substantially... More

Small old pub attached to a hotel. Basic lunch menu but lovely presented and large portions. Log fire. Great welcome. Nice quiet pub to relax in as it's a few mins climb up from Coniston. Right next to footpath to and from Coniston Old Man.

Popped into the 'Sun' as we always do after our battle with the 'Old Man' on 11/10/16 the usual warm welcome, the usual quality and selection of sales and a stroke for the dogs, see you again in March 2017 😊

Having walked up The Old Man and had an amazing walk back down we forced ourselves to stop for a reviving pint at The Sun. A great choice as it turned out. Not only do they serve great local beers they also offer excellent food at very reasonable prices. I recommend a pint of "Yolo" if it appears as one... More

We only dropped in for a reviving Latte after walking down from Coniston Old Man, but will definitely eat there when we next have a chance. The place was clean and quirky, with a large dining area inside and a terrace for dining etc outside, and lawns with views to the Yewdale fells and Coniston. This is the first place... More

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
