The Snooty Fox
Ranked #1 of 1 Uldale B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 November 2009

Having greatly enjoyed my one previous meal here, I thought it would be good to break the journey en route to my fathers funeral which was the next day. I phoned the saturday evening to ask whether they did sunday lunch and what time they stopped serving to be told - we serve all day sir. We arrived at 1430, to be greeted in the car park by the chef.
He said words to the effect of 'I'll save you the bother of getting out (which I had already done) because we're closed'.
My reply 'But I phoned last night to confirm you were open',
His retort 'We've never been open on a sunday'. (See the website for the hours)
My reply 'Then please tell the bar staff so they can advise customers correctly'. Would you mind if the girls use the loo before we go?'
His reply 'feel free' and then 'No on second thoughts I dont like your attitiude, you can [--] off, go on bloody [--] off out of our car park!'.
No point pursuing the conversation so we departed, to eat at another open, friendlier hostelry. Later that day I phoned the proprieter who said the chef had related the conversation finding me very aggressive, but had not told her his language. She intimated that she was on the bar that sat eve and hadnt been aware of my call - I must have had a bad line on my mobile and misheard. She wasnt prepared to accept that our witnessed conversation (by my 24 yr old daughter) wasnt aggressive on my part, altho she did say she'd follow up the foul language.
I for one am not prepared to accept the manner and language I was exposed to - even had I misheard the bar staff when I phoned - the we were exposed to tirade was unacceptable.
Make your own minds up! We will not be returning.

Went to this pub in October and February, The food is excellent and not your normal bar meals of burger and chips. The staff & locals are very friendly and they take dogs in the snug bar side. We are going back to Uldale in October and will definitely be using the pub again.

PS. didn't get charged for our mints!

The food here is excellent however, the prices are above average for this area. It was a shock to be charged for the ubiquitous after dinner-mints which arrived with our coffee, we had ordered the coffee but not the mints. It is this kind of thing that leaves a bad taste - we will not be returning to this pub but we will be back to the area.
