Great pub serving good beer and food with friendly staff, plenty of choice of real ales and good menu catering for all, well worth a visit.

After a tough day on the peaks we abandoned our intention to visit the more publicised Drunken Duck in favour of the short trip into the village, so very glad we did..

If I could picture my perfect pub this would be it. Even on a busy Saturday evening we were quickly seated by an open fire with the bar in easy reach and El Classico (Barca v Real Madrid) on the screen. Food was long enough in arriving to know it had been cooked with care but in good time for hungry bellies and the lamb dishes chosen were superb. Slightly confused at the review griping at cost, £15 for a good portion of perfectly cooked, delicious lamb and generous trimmings is perfectly fair isn't it???

Simple food, perfectly cooked and a great atmosphere in a warmly welcoming setting. Excellent!!!
Will visit again with no hesitation.

A bit pricey, but what do you expect from the Lakes? Staff very helpful. Even printed off some colouring for our son to keep him occupied before the food came. Overall a very pleasurable experience.

Very good prices and portions and was made to feel very welcome. 5*. Our dog was welcome too. Awesome. I had the chorizo burger and it was fantastic. Definately give it a go if you are in the area.

After a lovely walk we arrived in Hawkshead. The village is beautiful, very picturesque with shops and pubs dotted around the white washed cottages.
On entering the Sun Inn we were welcomed by very friendly staff who noticed we were slightly cold and damp and offered us the table by the roaring fire and told us they serve mulled wine...it was beautiful just what we needed, along with live football on the TV... what more could we ask for!
After explaining that we had missed the lunch menu we decided to return for an evening meal and we weren't disappointed.
All four of us chose different from the menu. The mussels for starter where the tastiest and largest I have ever had.
The 'King Henry' lamb was served with lovely fresh vegetables and all four of our dishes were presented differently.
The prices aren't cheap pub prices but then neither is the food. you get what you pay for.
The bar man, think is name was Alex, makes you feel very welcome and comfortable.
We did visit other pubs in the village but I think this is the friendliest, most comfortable and although I can't compare food, I think we made the right choice!
You can stay at this pub and we are certainly planning our next trip to include the Sun Inn for a night. 10/10
