Comments by walkers who stayed at The Fox and Hounds in Ennerdale Bridge on The Coast to Coast Path
Friendly staff; nice assortment of real ale; tasty food; very comfortable accommodation. We enjoyed listening to the brook while falling asleep and on waking.

Great welcome on arrival, really nice staff, cases in room on arrival really nice room & great bath for soak after first day of C2C!
Stuart & Sue, left on 18 August 2014
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.

Excellent stay. Cases were in our room when we arrived, we had a bath as requested and the food and beer was good.

Lovely friendly pub with large rooms, at least one with a bath, great for those tired legs. Be sure to try the Ennerdale Darkest. Breakfast was great as well. This is a community pub run by volunteers, well worth your support.
Jeff and Wendy, left on 13 November 2012
A very friendly pub with a good-sized bedroom with bath - just what was needed after our first day of walking.

Stayed 1st September 2012
Lynne & Paul, left on 24 September 2012

Stayed at the Fox & Hounds 3rd July 2012. Good accommodation and food. Made to feel very welcome
Bob Conlin, left on 16 July 2012
Really helpful and friendly. The camping field was flooded and it was arranged that we would stay in the Church for the night. Staff were helpful, the food was great. Martin had even been to check that the route was safe for us to walk the next day.
Denise, left on 13 July 2012

Carnt Paise this place enough.. It will take some beating on our c2c walk. We turned up after the worst rain you could imagine, soaked through. Martin took all our wet gear and put it to dry then we had tea and shortbread, nothing was too much trouble, evening meal was great staff great and the local were friendly too giving us tips for our next day. The breakfast was enough to keep us going all day and again more advice because of the rain which way to go etc. we will definitely be going back soon... Before you get to enerdale bridge call in a the pop in cafe at moor row marje was delightfully good tea and cake.

Thank you for an unforgettable evening. The room was excellent and the food exquisite. The hospitality was second to none and really go that extra mile to help you when you’re in need. As we were soaked through after nearly eight hours of torrential rain and gale force winds after coming down Dent and found this pub by mistake as we were looking for Low cock how farm. Martin offered to dry are clothes and have a bath without staying at the B & B just to warm up. I would recommend this establishment to anyone and will be certainly stay again.
Thanks to Martin, friends and work colleagues who made are time extra special.

Wonderful. Had a room beside the river Ehen and could hear the river trickling along all night. Had a big bath too. Breakfast and evening meal good. Recommended.
Ed Moody, left on 08 November 2011
An excellent place to stay. Our room was large and comfortable and very well equipped. Staff very helpful and hospitable. We wish them all the best with their community pub.
Berenice and Lin, left on 26 September 2011
Dinner, breakfast and packed lunches from the Fox and Hounds were fabulous. Diana is absolutley the best! The community spirit of the F&H is wonderful, good for them for saving their local!
Our family of 6 (with 5 year old twins) were embraced like family.
Thanks Diana!
Amy, Alex, Katie, Virginia, Cedric and Duncan, left on 21 August 2011
This community pub is well worth a stay. Clean, warm, welcoming. Food of a high standard. Thank you.
Bob Sheard, left on 20 August 2011
The room was really nice, very comfy beds and well kitted out with a kettle and a selection of drinks plus biscuits. The room also had a lovely large bath, which is always a plus on a walking holiday. The food was really good, one of the best meals on the whole walk. Breakfast was a bit of a disaster, one of the staff had obviously overslept, as the pub was dark and unattended in the morning. However, we had our breakfast and were away by 9:20, and they only charged us for a single room as an apology, so we were very happy.

Arrived here parched after the first day's treck and received a really nice welcome. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Our bedroom was large, as was the fully tiled bathroom. The overbath shower was really powerful which is just what you need to refresh yourself. TV in the room received freeview and standard channels. There's no mobile phone coverage here but the pub has free wi-fi and a public phone. The evening meal and breakfast can only be classed as awesome. Good prices and good quality. Would stay here again. Twin room (double bed plus adult cot) was £85
Michael Morby, left on 25 May 2011
We eat here on 8th April 2011 two days after it had reopened. It is now being run by the villagers with 175 people owning a share! Whilst it was obvious they were still getting to grips with everything the food and drink was very good. They hadn't started doing packed lunches yet but this was imminent.
Peter Amos, left on 23 April 2011
This was our first night on the walk and we had a wonderful welcome from Diane. She provided water and then tea and was so hospitable. She seems to do every job in the pub but is a real treasure. The food at dinner was very good and the breakfast was good. The room was spacious and plenty of hot water for two baths. Would definitely stay here again

Diana greeted us with the offer of a jug of iced water after our long hot walk from St Bees, it was a wonderful welcome and much appreciated. Diana looked after us all beautifully. The food was great , especially Dianas cooked breakfast, and the rooms clean and comfortable. We left on 22nd June 2010.If ever we pass that way again we will definitely stay there again.
Pat Pudsey, Kirkby in Furness, left on 04 July 2010
We had a nice room here, but it was immediately above the pub (as I think they generally are), and so noisy quite late. The staff turned the music down once the pub closed, but it had been on after closing for staff doing clean-up. It was also something of a hassle to pick up our packed lunch at a different pub in town. That said, we were happy with our dinner and breakfast, and the staff kindly fetched a bag of ice for a sore ankle.
Stephanie, left on 11 January 2010
Quiet and lacking atmosphere.Room was nice but let down by lack of heating(did request but was told it would be unlikely)which is quite important for walkers.Decided to eat at the Shepherd's arms which was ok.
Would consider staying somewhere else next time.
Craig & Wendy (Sept 2009), left on 16 October 2009
Visited in Sept 09. Very disappointing.Unusually for C2C stops,there was no welcome.Proprietor was dashing around doing several jobs (maybe let down by someone?) but poorly.Room was good but no heating to dry our wet clothes (
R & J Martin, left on 10 October 2009
Rooms a bit basic compared to others on the C2C, and also one of the most expensive. Would probably try somewhere else next time.
anon, left on 20 September 2009
A lot of money has been spent on the refurbishment and our room was excellent. It's a pity that the overall organisation of the two pubs in the village appears a little shambolic. We booked a table in the restaurant when checking in but were told later that the chefs were busy preparing food for the weekend and encouraged to go the the other village pub. When we returned the restaurant was full of peple tucking into their meals!

Left 22 May 2009

September 2008.
Very large room and bath but rather cold and plain. Pub food okay. Not bad considering the limited choices in this area but would try elsewhere next time.
Bob & Leslie Casey, left on 15 February 2009
Arrived soaking wet to a roaring fire, a welcoming smile, and one of the roomiest rooms we had on the whole trip. A lively atmosphere, but no noise after about 10 pm. Loved it!
