Visited here as we were staying near Caldbeck. Very easy to drive to and a large car park at the back. We sat in the front section of the pub and were seen to very quickly. We both had steak and mushroom pie which was probably the best we have ever had. Came in a good portion, piping hot with...

Visited this pub 20/3/17. After entering the bar we were told that our small dog was not allowed in this particular bar , and we would have to go next door . This bar was small smelly . Not a nice place to sit and have a meal. This pub advertises itself as dog friendly . I don't think so.

As a family of four, we had a terrific dinner at The Snooty Fox this week. We were completely spoiled for choice by the extensive menu - standard dishes and specials. The food was first-class. Lovely atmosphere with the welcome of a log fire in the bar on a cold, rainy evening. Excellent, friendly service. Just perfect all round. We'll...

Absolutely superb in every respect. How had we not found this wonderful pub before? Lovely comfortable room with plenty of space. Spotlessly clean. We asked for fresh milk to make a cup of tea. No problem ( why is this signicant? ) The evening meal was incredible. The chef is clearly very,very talented and takes huge pride in the fare...

The Inn is reached by driving along narrow country lanes so one needs to be aware of sheep and cows straying there. We had a large room at the front of the property which had a pleasant view. The room was well decorated and the carpet appeared to be new. The bathroom had modern fitments and there was no bath...

Hi, Thanks for your review there is just a couple of points that I wish to address regarding your review. Firstly we are a small country pub that offers B&B not a hotel, our opening hours are clearly visible both on our website and at the pub itself. I suggest in future if you are wanting to stay in, then...

Another great two weeks stay, thank you to Pat, Mark and staff. Made to feel very welcome and enjoyed more fabulous food, have particularly missed Mark's breakfasts - a bowl of cereal just doesn't compare! Definitely recommend

We stayed here for one night, the place is great. Our room was lovely and spacious. The evening meal was really nice, with a menu that offered a range of choices from the traditional to the different. We ate and drank well, almost too well as we then had to waddle around the local roads for half an hour to...

Just had a long weekend with our grown up family in the lake district. On the last night we decided to be lazy and eat out. Thankfully where we were staying was 2 minutes walk from the Snooty Fox. Great local beers and a sensible selection of wine. We booked a table for 7 and brought our 2 dogs, no...
