Score from 230 reviews Very good
staff were very friendly and helpfull and food was very good as well
Friendly atmosphere excellent food.
Would have liked more choice of cold food at breakfast. Lighting in room and bathroom poor.
The Sun Inn is in the middle of a lovely village and has an old english feel about it. It felt cosy in the evinging with a log fire in the corner which was welcome on a November night. The staff where very pleasant and helpful and parking was not a problem with the public car park very near and no charge if staying at the Sun Inn
The bedroom was small but adequate with a lovely old four poster bed which was very comfortable. The room could have had better lighting but the ensuit was very nice and everything seemed very clean.
Friendly, hospitable, helpful, clean, good food and drink.
WIFI was weak in the bedroom.
Noisy toilet system
Service support and breakfast were excellent
Good location Great beer Great staff Fantastic breakfast Very good customer service
There was a bit of a problem with dinner in the evening but the excellent customer service dealt with it very well.
Friendly relaxed atmosphere, right in the centre of Hawkshead, good choice of food for evening dinner, and breakfast. Great staff and nice and clean....what more could you want.
comfortable beds, tasty food, convenient car parking, good location.
Very good breakfasts and evening meals.Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very nice bathrooms, plenty of hot water. Nice view from front bedrooms. Good selection of complimentary hot drinks in room.
Mattresses need updating and pillows should be renewed. Dust and cobwebs evident in all three occupied rooms in the party, otherwise acceptable.
Quality of food was excellent
Cobwebs on the ceiling light in our room
The food was excellent, very tasty, fresh and hot.
The room was very nice and location great.
The shower was cold.
Stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful relaxing stay. Atmosphere was bril, good beer and wonderful food. Location is perfect, whether you just want to stroll around the village or hit the walking trails. Thanks to everyone at Sun Inn for making it a wonderful stay !
Nothing was bad !
Small but nice room very cosy. Good nights sleep. Breakfast was perfect couldn't have asked for anything better.
Bathroom was a bit compact but lovely and clean.
staff and food top class,good old fashioned english pub.
bed uncomfortable head board under window causing draught.
Great place to relax after a day walking the fells. Warm, welcoming and good service.
All was good no issues.
Breakfast was good with lots of choice. Good location and car park very close by, with free parking permit. Pleasant bedroom although small.
Unfortunately the shower wasn't hot but the manager told us he would look into it. Some staff seemed to spend a lot of time in the smoking area just at the front door which didn't give a good first impression.
Staff were great, breakfast was ok. The location was very good. Would have definitely preferred to stay at the queens head pub. However would be more expensive.
Window sill was dusty and room was very pokey. Very cheap shower/bathroom facility however it was clean enough
lovely staff, good food, good value for money
staff were very friendly, and we enjoyed nice food,rooms could do with some more wardrobe space but it is a very old pub so space is at a premium,better than the other pubs in the village in my opinion.as i said nice place for a couple of days.
Great breakfast and good bar. Excellent location in middle of Hawkeshead and the pub provided an overnight car parking pass which was very good.
Around 50% of the light bulbs in the room did not work, and the bathroom door would not close (warped). The room overlooked a cluttered and dirty side passage, no attempt to keep it clean for the benefit of those staying in the room above. At a £140.00 per night we felt it was poor value compared to other B&B`s in the area.
Great food. Good choices of breakfast and lovely dinners.
Our stay at the Sun Inn was really enjoyable the staff were very helpful we will be going back again
location, good staff, good breakfast
