“Sun hotel coniston”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Paid a visit to the sun hotel for my eldest daughters birthday .having drove from preston after hearing rave reviews of the new chef .I must admit the food served was exceptional .And even though the head chef is only in his mid twenties he must be a star in the making I will definitely be paying a revisit and good luck and thanks to Nathan and his team.

“New chef, give it a try”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Nathan, the new chef, took over about 2 weeks ago, so ignore the previous bad comments on the food. He's young but experienced and very passionate, spending time with us to explain what he wants to do with the restaurant. Daily specials on top of a good pub menu, varied wine list and 8 real ales to choose from. Our group ate there every evening over a long weekend and had no complaints.

“New chef! Ignore old reviews!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

This place has had a new chef, so older reviews probably out of date. We had excellent meal here, perfectly cooked steak and excellent traditional fish and chips. Good freshly prepared home made food, loved the chunky chips! Place is traditional rustic pub with a nice atmosphere , we had good service. Would go again and would urge others to try it out. The new chef must be the difference and the sun hotel deserves a higher rating than it currently has.

“Bad food, bad service”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Arrived in Coniston after a 7 hour drive looking forward to a good pub meal. How disappointed were we!! Four different main courses ordered and all were really bad. Hunters chicken very overcooked, chicken curry not a curry at all, Sausage and mash became sausage and chips without any discussion. And all chips obviously reheated. After querying it the waitress said she would check if chef could do anything but never came back. When paying for meal there was no question from staff of whether everything was ok just a grunt. Will never return. Shame as pub 100 metres from cottage!!
