We stayed in Ennerdale Bridge and discovered this hidden gem. All staff were very welcoming and accommodating, even changing their menu to offer additional choice for a vegetarian member of our party. Six locally brewed real ales- delicious. Generous portions of food, even came with extra chips without asking. Would recommend you search out this friendly local. Discovered they offered... More

We had visited Ennerdale Water, a remote beautiful lake which takes a bit of effort to find, it is off the beaten track of the normal driving routes (although if you are a walker it is on the coast to coast walk route). This Inn is great for a meal, the welcome and service was great and the food was... More

a warm welcome and fab food. Great choice if local ale. We did not stay at the hotel but stopped for rest and food after walking. The staff were lovely and chatty and the menu choice was good and the gravy with the belly pork was to die for!

A spur of the moment idea to go away for a an August Bank Holiday Saturday night in the Lakes followed by a walk on the Sunday was looking extremely doubtful after phoning 30+ hotels and B&Bs in Keswick and the surrounding area and getting the same reply - fully booked or stop for 3 nights minimum! Then I had... More

An excellent stay with staff who were extremely helpful. The rooms were of a high quality and some other more traditional pubs (Black Bull, Reeth) could learn a lot from The Fox + Hounds that do try and make a difference.

I camped here for my first night on the Coast to Coast after a long walk from St Bees. You know you're in a good place when you're welcomed with the question, "What would you like to do first? Pitch your tent or have a beer?" The welcome, the food and the beer made up for not having a shower... More

We stayed here overnight during a half-C2C walk and were pretty tired after a long day's march, so it was a treat to get Kate's warm hospitality and efficiency as soon as we arrived. The whole team (I gather it's community run) were friendly and produced meals, beers, breakfasts and packed lunches with ease. Tasty and generous portions and spacious,... More

Its a long first day from St Bees and the Fox and Hounds was a welcome sight. The room was nice and quite - over looking the graveyard! Large comfortable bed and very friendly staff. Food was typical pub fare and good value. Packed lunch and WiFi fulfilled all other needs !

We did a charity walk up Scafell Pike and we were really ready for a good meal! We managed to get squeezed in as the pub was so busy with diners. My husband and I had the Ribeye Steak which was locally sourced and believe me it was the best steak we have eaten and the home made chips to... More
