The oldest building in Lancaster, The Sun was first licensed as ‘Stoop Hall’ in 1680 as the town’s premier coaching inn. Generals from the occupying Jacobean Army lodged here in 1745, and the artist JMW Turner stayed whilst making sketches of Heysham in 1812. Original features include a bottomless well and beautiful old door. The bar is frequented throughout the day; from hotel guests and business breakfasters, to shoppers enjoying mid-morning coffee or brunch, and customers tucking into the locally sourced food at lunch and dinner, as well as wine and ale connoisseurs. The experienced kitchen brigade prepares sea bass niçoise; baby carrot and fennel risotto; and sausages and mash. The extensive cheese board menu is especially popular, and also includes cold meats, pâtés and fish. There is a patio for alfresco dining in warmer weather, regular quiz nights and an annual beer festival in the summer.
