Ate here recently. Landlady had a smirk for the benefit of the locals at our expense. Food poor with piles of tasteless cauliflower and carrots. Cumberland sausage appeared meat free. Lad serving us was the only friendly face.

Stayed in beautiful Beckwell Cottage in Dent for a week and decided to eat in the Sun Inn as it was only 200 yards from the cottage and as it was a sunny day, getting busy with tourists - big mistake.

Ordered sharing platter for 2 daughters (chicken wings, mushrooms etc), fish n chips for hubby & jacket spud with tuna mayo for myself. EVERYTHING on the sharing platter was the same colour - chicken wings, breaded mushrooms, onion rings & wedge potatoes were all overly deep fried & dark brown. Fish n chips - ditto, only mushy peas added colour. Tuna mayo unfortunately was presented warm at the side of the J.Spud & looked just like cat sick - very unappetising!!

Didn't finish our meal, skipped dessert, made our excuses & left. Save your time & money and travel to the Crown Inn in Hawes or Avanti (Italian) in Kirkby Lonsdale - both will require booking.
