Excellent food served reasonably quickly: very quick to seat us (a large family). Water provided for our two dogs and then a look at the menu. A limited choice, particularly on the desserts but well worth the wait when the food arrived. Would definitely visit again were there not so many other places to try in Kirkby Lonsdale. One other...

My husband and sons had done the 3 peaks challenge that day and were totally elated but exhausted as we arrived for our evening meal. Well, staff could not have been more helpful. They let us choose a table and then, when a noisy lot arrived near us, were great about our moving to a nice, snug, quiet table mid... More

I went to Kirby Lonsedale with my mum for the weekend and after a painful 8 hour drive on the M6 from London on a Friday I was wondering whether the trip was worth it at all until we ate at the Sun Inn. I can honestly say it was the most amazing food I have ever had and being... More
