We went to the Snooty Fox while visiting Cumbria, the food was of a high standard, good varied seafood platter and a good choice of meat dishes. The beer was well kept and interesting. Dog friendly, in the upper bar area.

Had the most delicious meal at The Snooty Fox. I had Chicken with a creamy sauce full of flavours and my friend had rack of lamb which he said was 'sublime'. A warm and cosy environment, excellent service and great ambience. All in all an absolute gem ....superb!

Exceptional quality of food and very good service. You simply will not find food of this quality at this price anywhere else. A good choice on the menu and everything cooked and presented to the highest standard. charming old world atmosphere and really good beer too. If only all Lakeland pubs were this good!!

We had a great dinner at the Snooty Fox. The pub is quaint, warm and welcoming. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and provided excellent service. The regular menu is extensive and there is a large selection of daily specials. My husband really enjoyed the venison and I had one of the best "pies" ever! The kitchen easily substituted...

Booked a table and glad we did because it was very popular on the night we visited. Everyone was really friendly and service was fast. We ordered some drinks, I got the slow cooked lamb and my boyfriend got the steak. The lamb was quite honestly the best slow cooked lamb I've ever had. I can't wait until our next...

We were very lucky to get booked in here after my sister and brother-in-law decided to come and stay with us at the last minute. The food was fabulous, as always, three of us had the fillet of beef, perfectly cook to all of our requirements, one had the halibut which was amazing. The selection of vegetables were also amazing...
