I have eaten here numerous times at lunchtimes and always had a good meal. The food is always excellent and I have had bar snacks to main courses. Food is locally sourced where possible and of a very high standard. We recently ate here with family and all bar myself had meals from the specials board which were fabulous. The...

I have been a regular at the Sun since it came under the present ownership and it is one of my favourite places to stay, eat, and drink. The rooms are stylish and very comfortable, the food is usually excellent and the drink selection is superb with real ales and craft beers that are usually served in top condition....and yet!...

This is our second trip to Lancaster, and our second time staying at the Sun Inn. The rooms are very pleasant with high standards and very good En Suite facilities, Breakfast was excellent as usual, and we pre-ordered which meant it was ready two minutes after we sat down. Would highly recommend the Sun Inn if you require a reasonably...

The location is convenient and central in Lancaster, which is a pleasant and pretty little city. Our room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. There was some noise from outside late at night, but that is to be expected in a city centre on a Saturday night. The pub has a very cosy, traditional feel, with lots of exposed stone...

I stayed in The Sun Bar and Inn with my friend on the 5th April 2014. We had a few drinks in various bars in the centre of lancaster but found The Sun the most relaxing. It has a great selection of ales, wines and the food was lovely. We stayed in room 24 which we found a little warm...

Just spent a Saturday night and we liked it. The bar and beer is superb and brace yourself for breakfast. Its awesome. Location is brilliant although there is no car park. We used 'park safe' round the corner which is fine but costs £12 for 24 hours. The room we have was great. Big bed, nice bathroom, decent size TV...
