The Sun Inn is a typical English village pub and has its origins as a 17th century coaching inn, extended over the years to include a restaurant, enlarged kitchen and five letting bedrooms. It serves the village itself and attracts customers from all round the Penrith area for food and drinks, and we welcome visitors to the north-eastern Lake District from all over the country and overseas.It is particularly well-placed for those undertaking the famous Coast-to-Coast cycle challenge, being around 45 miles from Whitehaven and Workington on the west coast of Cumbria, and for many the end of the first day’s cycling. The Sun Inn has five letting bedrooms, which cater for a range of needs. All have en-suite facilities. Following our take over of the Inn, our bedrooms have been extensively refurbished and all are now ready for occupation, including the new ‘bunk room’.
We pride ourselves in offering a great range of quality food, fine wines, real ales, value for money and excellent customer service, in a cosy atmosphere. The Sun Inn is a free house.Our restaurant room is also available for hire at modest cost on most weekdays for meetings, events, parties, funeral teas, etc. A range of refreshments can be provided, including hot and cold buffets options to suit your budget. Please phone for details, prices and availability.
