We called in here for lunch just 2 minutes before the time when food serving finished. They were very helpful in checking with the chef what was still available and the service was quick and friendly. The food was average pub food.

We stayed for one night at the Fox & Hounds after walking to Ennerdale Bridge from St. Bees. We arrived in mid-afternoon to a relatively deserted place and needed to track down someone to provide us a room. The room appeared not to have been updated in 30 years, but was relatively large and clean, with an older bed that...

I wanted to support this community rescued Camra listed pub so enjoyed a good pint of Ennerdale brewery bitter one lunchtime but my visit was ruined by a girl of about 5 running wildly throughout the bar and pool room shouting and screaming at the top of her voice. What appeared to be her grand parents made no attempt to...

Stopped in Ennerdale for three nights, we were going to eat in here , but given the fct the staff who were not busy at all, did not have any conversational skills or were not willing to engage we decided not to. The beer was very good however and well served with a good selection and a nice roaring fire....

A calming place to re-engerise after walking a around beautiful Ennerdale Water. This is not a Michelin starred gastropub but does serve honest food in a traditional setting. The staff were friendly and this definitely a dog friendly pub. Local ales from Ennerdale brewery went down fine too. Don't come here if you're expecting food cooked by the new superstar...

We were here for Sunday lunch today and the bar staff were lovely. However, any chef worth his salt would know not to cut beef with the grain. We had to ask for steak knives to cut the beef which did not help the enjoyment in any way. In the end we asked for a doggie bag but sadly our...

We had a great lunch at the Fox and Hounds this week. Situated in the heart of Ennerdale Bridge, the pub has a lovely atmosphere and a good selection of local beers including two from the nearby Ennerdale Brewery. Food was good pub fare, great for all the family. The pub also has a beer garden by the river if...

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...
