The staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu is typical of a good pub. I found the food of very good quality and plenty of it too. Popular with locals and a good place to stop off after visiting Kendal.

Stopped at the Punch Bowl on a trip to Kendal in February and the attention to detail was fantastic, catering to everyones needs. It was very impressive. Even board games in the bar, ideal when it gets a bit rainy in the Lakes!
