Stayed in beautiful Hawkshead and enjoyed two fantastic evening meals at the Sun Inn, which in our opinion provides the best food by far in this lovely village.

The service and atmosphere is great, the staff very friendly without being pushy,but the food quality was just outstanding, would love to pick fault, but just couldn't, highly recommended.

Only downside of all restaurants in this area is they stop cooking at 9.00 p.m. So you need to factor this into your plans, other than that go and enjoy

A pub recommended by our hosts at The Ivy Guest Hotel was a great choice. On a quiet Monday night, the staff were fantastic and the food was absolutely superb. A great atmosphere and the perfect place to relax with great food and drink.

The menu sounded good so ate here last Monday with my daughter. I ordered mullet with seafood pilau rice. The fish was overcooked and had been cooked in oil that something had been burnt in previously by the look of it, ie covered in little black specks. The rice tasted nice but had overcooked, rubbery pieces of squid in it - not pleasant. My daughter's meal was better however and our desserts - orange and cointreau creme brulee - were very nice. I'm not sure if the beer is kept well though as we had a beer that we'd had in another pub the night before and it definitely tasted much better there. When we queried this we were told there was nothing wrong with it! I don't think I'd eat there again, especially as the bill was over £51 - wouldn't have minded if the meal had been really good.

Very friendly staff, good service and the food was better than expected.

That sounds mean, but I only mean that from the outside this pub lacks kerb appeal as they've kind of hidden it behind a big marquee which is definitely good when it rains but it doesn't help entice you in.

I had a prawn cocktail starter which was huge and came with some yummy bread and hubby had Cajun chicken which had been cooked beautifully - it was so moist and tender!

Wine was great and it was all very reasonable.

We'd have loved to go back for dinner one night but didn't have enough nights!
