The Sun Inn is a traditional Lakeland Inn dating from 1711 with stone floors and roaring fires in the winter, low hanging wooden beams, and exposed brick.
Originally, the Inn was a row of cottages with one enterprising resident serving beer from the front room of one of the cottages. Visitors to the area increased during the early 19th century thanks to the establishment of Crook Mill where bobbins were manufactured, and as a result, the Inn became a fulltime establishment.
The Sun Inn ticks all the boxes for a quintessential countryside pub. Filled with rustic charm, this is a traditional Lakeland Inn where visitors are able to escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life and enjoy the simple pleasures of real ale and hearty home cooked food.
