Owners Iain and Jenny Black first met when they both lived and worked in Cumbria. Many years later, they decided to return and start a new adventure.
They discovered the Sun Inn after visiting a number of towns and villages and just like our many guests and visitors, they immediately fell in love with Kirkby Lonsdale and the Sun Inn too!
The cosy Sun Inn has oak beams and wooden floors, big log fires and has been lovingly restored with craftsman-built cabinets and furnishings – the restaurant even has chairs from the 1906 ocean liner, the Mauretania.
It is thriving and friendly, our staff and our resident pooch, Charlie the Labrador, love nothing more than welcoming guests to the Sun Inn.
The Sun Inn dates back to the 1600’s and is a very ancient inn that still has much of it’s original character and features which include an overhanging first floor that is supported by huge limestone pillars.
The inn is named after the Sun Dial which resides in St Mary’s Churchyard behind the inn.
