“Very superior pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Excellent accommodation with outstanding bathrooms (including bathrobes). Very good dinner in attractive dining room. Interesting and well priced wine list as well as good local real ale in the atmospheric bar. Breakfasts which set you up for the day (with concomitant saving in lunches). Very friendly and attentive staff. The sort of place you hope to find in France but seldom do.

From our first step inside the door, excellent customer service, an example to others. Very comfortable rooms, first class food, all set in a lovely little town.

We stayed here for a weekend break , on arrival we were warmly greeted , taken to our room and given all the info we needed. Everybody is very freindly , the rooms have nice little extras , nothing is to much trouble. Had a lovely evening meal , and the full english breakfast is one of the best i have ever had hot tasty and cooked to order . what a nice change wish all inns and hotels would do this instead of buffets. Location great, plenty of pubs and eating establishments on your door step. Look forward to a return visit. Angus n gill

Room Tip: We had a superior room that gives you the extra space.

We have visited here for food a number of times and stayed once before. Our stay again was for a birthday treat and we took along with our springer spaniel, jake. The staff were welcoming, attentive and friendly as ever. We stayed in a superior room which was fab, had modern decor, an amazing bathroom with great personalised touches like bath salts and sprays from the local bath store. This resulting in us paying a visit and spending a fortune!! A much apprieciated touch was a little bottle of fizz and a birthday card in the room also.
We had a table reserved in the bar area, with jake, for our evening meal. Although a monday it's a good job it was reserved as it was busy. We had food from the set menu, which was great value and the food was amazing. The lemon and blueberry posset is a must, and I'm not a dessert person! You only have to look at all the reviews on here to know this is a little gem.
We love this place, it's becoming a regular haunt. I highly recommend a visit.
Thanks to the Sun Inn team. See you soon, The Whitehurst's.

This is a great place to stay, good value, great food, really friendly. I stayed for a 1 day business trip, but plan to take the family.

In addition, the town is beautiful.

My partner and I have been to the Sun Inn several times for lunch and refreshments, we decided to stay, tried many times online and two phone calls to no avail as there were no vacancies on the night we required. Late Friday evening I phoned and one guest had just cancelled Sat night and we were delighted that we had persevered. Up on arrival we were greeted by a polite and pleasant young Lady, who booked us in and showed us to the room, all the time asking if we had a good trip over to Kirby Longsdale from home and did we wish for refreshments, explaining also meal times and other important info.
The room was ideal, spotless and clean, crisp white cotton bed linen, small extras, body cream, small bottle of perfume, tea coffee, information of the area and a very very comfortable bed.
After settling in we had lunch, the service was excellent, food excellent, the whole of the Sun Hotel is finished to high standard, we decided to stay in the Sun for dinner, a table in the bar, both had Mussels they were to die for, large succulent and in a wine and cream sauce enough to dip your bread in. Following a walk after dinner around the small town of Kirby Longsdale, nice to see the bustle of all ages enjoying the warm evening between showers, and so to bed. very comfy crisp bed, cannot remember a thing until I awoke ready for breakfast, Granola home made mix by the Chef 'more'ish', followed by a very tasty breakfast every thing hot and cooked to perfection,Mark the owner was on duty for service with a young man, both were very attentive and helpful on service nothing was too much trouble.
Checked out and had a walk around the countryside and back along the river, returning to the Sun for late lunch/early tea. Staff excellent,food excellent,room excellent, service excellent.
Most definitley will be back, this is a gem in delightful dales town.
Thank you to all for making our stay at the Sun so enjoyable.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent as we had a guided tour some weeks before
