Reviewed 29 August 2013

The landlord found it hard to even speak to us showed us to our room. The stairway was disgustingly filthy bits hairs all up the stairs. Our room no2 was dirty with cobwebs, carpet not vacumned full of bits , used tissues in bathroom, bin not emptied from previous occupants. Dirty windows.Old shoddy chipped furniture, dusty lamps. The bed looked like it had been slept in as all bedding creased.
Breakfast was in bar-carton of juice, tea pot and coco pops on a table. .greasy very poor quality english breakfast .
How this establishment has a hygiene certificate ill never know. Not at all clean anywhere .Couldn't get out quick enough and will never ever return !!!!!!

On arrival way past booking in time even though they only have 4 rooms ours wasn't ready.
We eventually made our way up the stairs that were filthy an looked like they hadnt been hoovered for an age.
The room was very standard & the shower cubicle wasn't the cleanest
No food available as we were told the food delivery was coming on Monday.
When on our way home we realised we had left my sunglasses in the room my wife spoke to the barman who said they had been found & they would forward to us..... They now deny this & say they never found them perhaps when they saw they were ARMANI designer ones they changed there mind.....SAD.
All in all they don't deserve any custom......stay away.

We ate here with family and had a wonderful meal. The food was all freshly cooked and mainly traditional family favourites. The Yorkshire rarebit as a starter was a good choice. For Mains, between us we had the steak, fish and chips and scampi; all were excellent. The desserts were really good and very generous portions !! The service was also very good with a very courteous waiter, the Chef even came out of the kitchen to ask if we enjoyed our meals. Apparently we were some of the first customers to eat here since the management and Chef changed, you couldn't tell, it seemed like a well run kitchen!! We had an excellent meal and I would recommend the Old Sun for excellent home cooked food at great value.

A warm and friendly welcome by the family running the pub/hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and our requests were catered for. Clean and comfortable and outstanding value for money. Fabulous location in the beautiful village of Haworth. Stunning countryside!
