Description of pub:
Sun Coniston has been here for something like 400 years at the start of the mountains and the pack horse trails to the West.
Forever associated with Donald Campbell and his world water speed record attempts, the pub remains a classic Lakeland Inn
of rare quality. The bar at The Sun is something very special with 8 real ales on handpull, 4 draft lagers, 20+ malts and
30+ wines. It also has a stone bar, floors and walls, exposed beams, a working range in the fireplace that also heats the
hot water and a staircase upstairs to a new eating and drinking area open to the roof.
There's so much space up there
we put a boat across the beams and, with moving and extending the bar downstairs, we at last have the room and mix of space
to welcome discerning guests who appreciate a decent grown-ups pub. We welcome quiet children and well behaved dogs provided
they're on leads and don't chase the cat.
Additional rooms were
added when the hotel was built in 1902. Overlooking the garden and well away from the pub, we currently have 8 available,
all ensuite and comfortably furnished with decent bath or shower rooms.
