Whilst we have eaten at the Sun Inn many times, last weekend was the first time we had stayed over. The accommodation was lovely; clean, bright and so comfortable. Staff were professional and extremely courteous, friendly and efficient. An overall lovely stay. Thank you.

I and my wife's second stay at The Sun. The chef (Carter) is really good with interesting menus that not only look and taste fantastic but are also good on quantity - not often I struggle to finish a dessert! The staff were all really friendly and helpful, the room was great, we will be back next year. Kirkby Lonsdale...

The menu I can only describe as unusual (which is a good thing). Delightful describes the taste, everyone in our party of 6 commented on how good it was. The chef combines the freshest of ingredients with a talent for seasoning, preparation and presentation. Its not cheap, but then maybe it is for the quality of what you receive. Another...

My wife and I had eaten a couple of lunches at the Sun Inn in the past and determined to stay sometime. We were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming and professional. The food was excellent and we tried a few different dishes on the two nights we were there. The breakfasts are more than generous and very tasty. The...

Our 3rd visit to The Sun Inn and it's still one of our most favourite places to be. Warm & friendly greeting, rooms are comfortable and certainly spacious enough for us and 2 dogs. The parking permit is a great touch & takes the hassle out of parking (our car didn't move for two days!). Beautiful Bath House products in...

This was our 4th visit and again the Sun Inn didn't let us down. We had room 2 which was perfectly adequate as a standard room. Really well furnished. We love the atmosphere at the Sun Inn and the food was again fantastic. Right in the middle of Kirkby Lonsdale so easy to walk round the town. We will be...

Lovely room & food. Very kind people & good service although dinner service was fairly relaxed & maybe could have been a little `sharper' without making it feel rushed. Excellent cheeseboard. Staff obviously take great pride in the rooms and food and rightly so it is a very nice place. Lots of local ndependent shops also.

Warm, friendly, efficient service; room large enough easily to accommodate us and dog; very comfortable bed; superb bathroom with bath and walk-in shower; very good food - although choice of dishes, being somewhat limited, might lead to repetition if staying more than 4 or 5 nights; some fine beers and sensibly priced wines; dogs made most welcome. But the true...
