Our Bar

Our award-winning bar in Lancaster.

The Sun Hotel & Bar offers a huge range of craft spirits and mixers plus premium cask ales, draught beers, and beers in bottles and cans.

We love to seek out the best authentic, independent, and genuinely high-quality drinks. As a freehouse, our mission is simply to help you discover something you’ll love every time you visit our bar in Lancaster.

Our bar is open from 11am until 11pm every day.

We ask everyone to adhere to social distancing measures when moving through the building and only visit in groups that are allowed in current Government guidelines. You’ll find hand sanitiser for your use throughout the bar and seating area.

We’re not taking table bookings at the moment, everyone is welcome to join us when you please and stay as long as you like. We have a traffic light system in the pub windows – if the lights are red we are full and if they’re green you’re good to come on in. You’ll generally find the lights are green for the majority of the time.

We’re offering a hybrid of bar / table / app service to ensure we are keeping everyone as safe as possible. If it’s quiet we can offer bar service, if it’s busier we’ll need to move to table and app service only. The beer garden is app only service.


The finest ales
