A great piece of steak served imaginatively with tortellini and vegetables. Other interesting choices in the menu too.

Friendly and helpful staff - including one who dashed outside after us when a table became free for us just after we’d left.

Impressive gin menu too! What more do you want?

Excellent food but took 40 min to arrive after ordering. When we were ready for dessert the bar area was crammed with people making the place so noisy and unpleasant that we paid and left.

Really nice place, log fires, beautiful ales, good food and great staff. My only observation is it would be nice to have somewhere to sit comfortably to have a beer and a chat. I appreciate that pubs need bums on seats for food, it’s just an observation not a criticism.
My favourite place in Hawkshead.... well done to the staff.

Had a really lovely meal here yesterday, we all had the fish and chips which was cooked perfectly with the most amazing crispy batter. Prices are really reasonable and we were made to feel welcome, service was fast and we will be back again.

We made a special trip out to try the Sun Inn based on reviews on here. First thing to say is that the food did not disappoint, being just as expected, extremely well done pub food.

We had an issue where the starter had not gone through on the system and the mains came first (after some wait). However this was rectified quickly by the staff in a positive way so plus points for them here.

The one real minor was that our table was quite near the toilet. This isn't necessarily something I'm bothered about, but this toilet seemed quite smelly so every time the door was opened it wasn't too pleasant.

Would try again.
