Just back from a two day break at The Snooty Fox. Very comfortable rooms and the breakfasts were exceptional. Excellent choice of main meals in the evening and the portions will not disappoint. Very good beer to select and will return here again. Pat, landlady and Mark chef are very professional, friendly and caring. This is a very good place... More

I haven't been here for years and it must have changed hands because it's lovely! Unhurried, good service and excellent food. Good choice of both starters and main courses with fresh veg and a potato dish which changes daily. Good daily specials menu. I can't comment on the puddings, because we were too full. I would advise having a starter... More

Can't comment on food as didn't stay. Came as recommended as dog friendly. Although partly true in as much as you can take a dog in, please be aware that you will be swiftly ushered out of a nice cosy larger area to "the other end". That's fair enough but that 'end' wasn't nice. A small area and not particularly... More

There are not many pubs in the Northern Lake District that do really good food, a good selection of local ales and have a warming traditional pub atmosphere. This is one of them and probably the best. The food is lovely. High end pub food i would call it, not trying to be too clever, fancy or gastro-pubby. The hearty,... More

Come here as often as possible and always come away happy. Very full but always having enjoyed our meal. The portions are seriously generous so be warned! You deserve a medal if you can manage three courses. The dauphinois potatoes are seriously garlicky but oh so yummy. Best to reserve ahead. Most table were reserved on Saturday.

Still a great, local country pub serving home cooked food. Visited on a Monday evenin expecting it to be fairly quiet. However it was busy with both holiday makers and locals. Friendly, fast service. Recommend the slow cooked lamb and the venison casserole.

We visited Uldale after it being recommended by a friend. I have been once or twice previous to this but it was a long time ago. We were told to book, and we did, which I am pleased we did as I didn't realise it was as popular. I had the giant Yorkshire pudding with sausage and my partner had... More

We have visited the Snooty several times over the last 11 years or so. It never disappoints us. After a 4 year gap we have stayed again. Not only has the room had an upgrade, but also the pub's ambiance is, if anything, better. Pat's warm, friendly, and dignified management is mixed with Mark's incredible understanding of, and imagination with,... More
