Very limited buffet. Horrible coffee. Terrible juice . Poor quality sausage and bacon. Scrambled eggs with sage(?) added . Rubbery and tasted very odd. Packet sliced bread .

This was a late booking but Chris could not have been more helpful. I was disappointed with my evening meal, I don't think the fishcakes were home-made but my husband was very pleased with his steak and ale pie. The breakfast and packed lunch the following day made up for it though. Comfortable room and they were very welcoming to... More

A friendly, community run pub with good accommodation and good food and beer. Disappointed that there was no single occupany room rate and we were charged the full rate even though the person on their own only has one breakfast. As our party of 5 had all eaten dinner in the bar along with 2 friends from elsewhere and put... More

We stayed here for two nights for a mini break. A lovely pub with good food, pleasant staff and gorgeous food. We were treated to an Irish band on the last night which put the cherry on the cake! A great place from which to explore beautiful Ennerdale Water and a lovely comfortable, clean room to return to after a... More

We have found the food to be very inconsistent here and tend to go to the other pub in the village where the quality of the food is consistently good, but we did have a very good beef madras curry here the other Friday night. We were told that it was the part time chef, so well done to him!... More

A lovely country Inn with friendly & helpful staff & locals. It has a decent selection of beers & food. The accommodation rooms are spacious & comfy. And as you probably know it's in a prime location for walkers & lovers of the great outdoors. Plus I must mention that it's only a short drive away from a superb pie... More

We usually stay elsewhere in the lakes and this was the first time we have visited Ennerdale. Really glad we chose the Fox and Hounds as we were made very welcome upon arrival. They only have three bedrooms but the accommodation was comfortable and spacious and the bed was a joy to sleep in! Downstairs, in the pub, the ale... More

First full night on the C2C post St Bees. Felt a little harsh in not eating there in the eve as they are clearly well sorted for food. But we had made an arrangement to go up the road. Breakfast was fine -0 and the room was lovely. Very comfortable.
