“Overnight stay in beautiful countryside.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

A warm and friendly welcome by the family running the pub/hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and our requests were catered for. Clean and comfortable and outstanding value for money. Fabulous location in the beautiful village of Haworth. Stunning countryside!

My Husband, dog Charlie and I was staying at September cottage and we found this establishment very dog friendly. The staff were very accommodating and cheerful and friendly. We went on several occassions to eat and have drinks. Charlie was allowed inside and on each occassion the food was great and service excellent. We would reccomend anyone to visit the Old Sun Inn.
Many thanks to all. Charlie said thank you to the excellent chef for all the beef you gave her!

Room Tip: We never stayed however we was offered a very good price to go back next year and the dog can stay t...

Don't eat here. For our party of 7, one persons food arrived after about 25 minutes, but after 40 minutes no other meals. We enquired and were told they were coming. After another 10 minutes we asked again and were told the chef was ill but the food was coming. After 60 minutes people who arrived 30 minutes after us were being served, so we asked for our money back.

This was eventually done with very bad grace and the money aggressively slammed down, when checked it was short. We were too fed up to argue.

We also noticed that the chef was scruffy and did not wash his hands after using the toilet.

A very unpleasant experience which did not quite spoil our day at this delightful village.

There are plenty of good places to eat in Haworth, just avoid the Old Sun.

Terrible, unless you like staying up until 2 in the morning. An ideal base for Haworth, being at the top of the main street. The room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of tea and coffee supplies. The breakfast was nice. We didn't eat an evening meal there but they looked good. If you are staying at the weekend and want to actually get any sleep before 2am, then don't bother staying here. We were told (AFTER we had paid) that they would be open until 2am - no mention of any loud music though. We didn't mind them being open that late, but what we did mind was the INCREDIBLY loud music that kept us awake until 2am. (this they didn't happen to mention) It was totally impossible to sleep - the bed was vibrating with the sound (not exagerating here!) and objects in the room were also being vibrated by the music below! At one point i had 2 pillows over one ear and one pillow over the other and it was still really loud. In the end we gave up trying to sleep and watched tv (which we had to put on 3/4 volume to be able to hear it and we were 1 foot from it!) If we'd know that loud music was going to be played until 2am we would've stayed elsewhere (plenty of choice!) What is the point of a bed and breakfast if you CAN'T ACTUALLY GET TO SLEEP? At breakfast in the morning I was waiting to be asked "Did you sleep well?" But guess what? We weren't asked. NEVER again. Haworth Old Hall and The Fleece don't cost much much and you can actually get some sleep.
