After a late fell walk stopped at The Sun for a Pub meal as it was the nearest and the parking is easy.
Should have taken note of the lack of customers on a sunny Sunday evening !
Long wait for food - not a bad sign but...
Mushroom Strogonoff was not good - whole mushrooms in a non-creamy saucy, the lamb roast dinner was un-impressive a few stir fried vegetables , lamb poor but nice roasties.
For almost £10 per dish very poor value, I dont think I have had such a poor quality or poor value meal in years.
Driving on through Coniston couldnt help noticing all the other pubs were doing a roaring trade !

Just a polite notice stating that the new head chef that had all the fantastic reviews has now left.

Sign says -"Well Worth the Walk" and "best food in the village"

Overpriced boil in the bag would taste bester than the chicken curry which was acidic, entirely vegetable free and overcooked.

My companion had the Hunter's Chicken - minimal veg, probably frozen and dry, dry dry chicken!

The only saving grace was the lovely waitress. Oh - and the barman was dour to say the least.

A very good selection of local beers for the Real Ale enthusiast. We had meals sitting outside in the early evening having finished a long walk around the Old Man, Swirl How and Wetherlam. Great location (views), friendly place, and good food.
