Lovely family evening meal. Nice and warm with the open fire. The menu is reduced due to covid but still a good range. Can recommend the fish and chips and the home made cheese burgers. Great range of local ales on tap. Staff very good and friendly. Thank you for another lovely meal.
We came for a drink early afternoon yesterday, as we were entering the bar applying the antibac gel in the doorway, a man rudely barged passed us all. My husband asked him to be patient but he responded saying "we've run out of patients up here" implying he'd had enough of 'tourists'. I understand this is not down to the pub, but this man was then joined by the Landlord. As per the previous review, we were sat near this family and the Landlord was extremely rude to them, their dogs were causing no problem at all. He made for a very awkward and uncomfortable atmosphere. He was also walking freely around the pub without a mask/face shield. We can't fault our barmen though. We shall happily take our business to many of the other lovely pubs in the town where we have been made to feel welcome.…
Just been for a meal at the sun in Coniston we come every year now this pub states dogs welcome well maybe it should say if dogs bark your not welcome we were in there only about 20 mins our dogs were quite but a few dogs came through the door and for no more than 2 mins our dogs were barking like dogs do the manager came over and said he'd had enough of it and said the dogs have to go then got on his knees and patted them. We took our dogs back to our cottage but we will never go again he was very rude and unprofessional.
First of all, I really liked this place but unfortunately it was let down by the state of the room and evening meal. When we arrived we were (rather rudely) told our rooms weren't ready til 5pm because of extra cleaning due to Covid. Not a massive deal but they didn't tell us that prior to arrival which would have been helpful. I'm not sure where the extra cleaning happened because the bathroom blinds were filthy as were the mirrors and it didn't appear to have been hoovered. It was however cheap so I guess you get what you pay for. We ate the Sunday lunch that night but again this was pretty terrible. Beef tough and inedible, parsnips uncooked. It's such a shame because (apart from the lady who greeted us on day we arrived) the staff were so helpful. The two men who worked in the bar/restaurant were particularly good humoured and friendly. They seemed to work 24/7 while we were there but always willing to help. With a bit of tlc it could be a great place, as the bar is a warm welcoming area and the breakfast was great too.…
First the positives. The location is great, at the foot of the hills next to Coniston. People say the bar is nice and the terrace outside would be superb on the two or three days a year when it's not raining. The staff, though a bit unconventional, are very friendly and helpful. They have long days and work really hard. However, even the owners would admit the rooms are desperately in need of investment. In my room there was a huge stain on the bathroom ceiling and everything was tatty and drab. The side of the bath had cracks and there were stains everywhere. The loud noise regularly produced by the plumbing was like a bad joke. In other villages of this size a place like this wouldn't survive because people would go elsewhere, but I've heard that all pubs and hotels here are just as bad. The locals are spoilt and complacent because people keep coming back to stay in lousy rooms at rip-off rates - but I won't. Wordsworth can stuff his daffodils.…
