Kirby is a beautiful village on the Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria borders. The village has got lovely shops and the Sun Inn has a fabulous restaurant,...

We decided to treat ouselves, whilst visiting kirkby lonsdale for the weekend, to sunday lunch. At £16.25 for 1 course of roast beef, we had high expectations!! The beef was tasteless, the roast lamb was pot roasted, deconstructed and then assembled in a circle the size of a very small tuna tin (mushy but tasty). The veg was shocking, overcooked...

The Sunn In is run by Mark and Lucy with a dedicated team of people who are very good at making a stay there very memorable. From arriving and...

Thank you very much for your review and we shall certainly take your comments into consideration. Most customers have two or three courses. We don't vary the size of the main course if you only have one course. The menu is carefully balanced so you can enjoy a four course meal without being over faced at the end of the...

My partner and I stayed at the Sun Inn early Jan. The weather wasn't too great but that didn't spoil the break! The room was very cosy, modern with lots of character. We had a few drinks in the other pubs that are near by before having a lovely meal at the Sun Inn Restaurant which was gorgeous. After a...
