Our Food

Our Delightful Eatery in Lancaster.

Enjoy casual dining in a relaxed and homely atmosphere.

Our kitchen team are back at work since indoor hospitality reopening. They are experimenting with new dishes all the time and can’t wait to cook for you soon! Rest assured we will be offering home-cooked food like we did before with special emphasis on simple, fresh and tasty dishes.

We work closely with the finest local suppliers with top quality produce so we can offer home-cooked food on each and every plate.

We leave the majority of our tables free from reservations so please feel free to join us when you please. We don’t want to put time restrictions on your seat so you can stay as long as you like once seated. We have installed a traffic light system in the pub window where a red light means we’re full and have no tables free, a green light means we’ve got tables free and you’re good to come on in! Alternatively, we have a few tables in our conservatory and well room available for bookings when dining with us Monday to Friday each week. Weekends remain walk ins only.

You’ll need to stay seated during your visit and sit in groups according to current Government guidance, we cannot allow large parties or “vertical drinking” at the moment.

Check out our TripAdvisor listing and see why we’re one of the highest reviewed kitchens in Lancaster.

The Sun Hotel & Bar is in the heart of our historic and vibrant city, nestled in the shadow of Lancaster Castle.
