Stayed for a few nights to celebrate my wife's birthday for a walking break in the Lakes. Nice quiet room, breakfasts were of high quality although service was a little slow. Nice selection of bar drinks would recommend for a short break

We stayed for two nights during our 25th wedding anniversary trip. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had a comfortable, spacious room. The food was top notch (a new chef had just started)! It has a sense of faded grandeur and gives a taste of what the Lakes used to be like. The view from our room (number...

The service was painfully slow with only one person serving. I noticed 2 or 3 other staff flitting in and out the bar area but they kept ignoring the queues. There was a selection of local ales which were not great in my opinion ( I tried 2 of them) Food was not being served when we visited which was...

Have eaten here a number of times but our visit in March was particularly good. We stay at Coniston at least once a month and often eat here. The staff are fantastic, friendly and really helpful. We have young children and they were especially helpful with them on this visit giving them some toys to play with and being generally...

Good ale. Good food. Nice folk. Games room. Lost a Saturday afternoon and evening in the blink of an eye whilst drinking and laughing with friends. Top of the hill behind the Black Bull. 5 min walk. Great views. Will be back.

Called up here to eat while staying in the village, bar man very pleasant, I had chicken ballotine & my partner the steak, nicely presented & good portions. Friendly pub, would recommend. Football on upstairs so good for anyone wanting to watch the match, we didn't but it adds to the atmosphere in the pub.

I booked last minute as I was hiking around the Lake District dependant on the weather this December. Really couldn't have asked for more. My room was great, cosy and exhibited magnificent views. Couldn't even hear the band or punters downstairs come Friday night! The staff were always very hospitable, making sure all was well. Lovely selection of local ale....

Visited the Sun for dinner last night. The atmosphere was lively with happy walkers fresh off the fells. Despite being very busy the staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. We placed our food order and enjoyed the laughter and banter of our fellow diners and drinkers. After 45 minutes wait we asked the bar staff if they knew why...

There was a small confusion with our order... we were not concerned, but all the staff were. Never has a tiny mistake been more been more thoroughly made up for. Clearly great customer commitment and a sense of ownership. .... the food and wine are pretty fabulous too. Add in log fires and happy hubbub... we will be back .
