Black pudding and haggis fritters followed by the most tender and tasty lamb shanks for our lunch. The teen had the house burger with a slice of haggis, said it was one of the best he’d had. Very friendly service. Well worth it. Oh yes, and the selection of ales .... the best! Beautiful views. It’s an old English pub, dog and muddy boots friendly. A sunny conservatory to sit in if you don’t want to be in the pub itself.

Lovely pub with roaring fires. Great food after a long day out, with large portions. Prices as to be expected because of the location. Just needs some background music so it’s not silent when not busy.

Returned to Coniston again and will return in May. The Sun Hotel is always a port of call for both food and beer. Always good and very friendly staff. I can recommend the Loweswater Gold and encased Steak and Ale pie.

We travel about two hundred miles each year to run the Coniston 14 and afterwards twenty or so, plus many other runners, congregate at The Sun for a pint and some carbs. We asked for a bowl of chips and were told, in an overly gruff voice that we need a table number and chips can’t go outside.

The table numbers, I later discovered, are pebbles, painted with a number. Maybe you could have a set of “outside pebbles”?

It felt entirely like you did not want to serve folks, especially those outside.

Seriously folks, nice beer, brilliant location, and lots of customers. Work with us or we will go elsewhere.

This review is written to accompany one written about a separate visit during the same week.

Partner and I nipped in for a swift pint after walking up Old Man of Coniston. Traditional pub atmosphere inside with a nice fire too. However we sat outside as the sun was shining & there are plenty of seats - perfect. I always pop in here for my first ‘reward pint’ when returning from the walk, and will continue to do so! Couple of Liverpudlians were running the bar, friendly chaps.
