Having ate here twice during a stay in Kendal during Aug 16, we had no hesitation in booking again for a reunion meal with our youngest daughter on Friday 20 Jan 17.

What a fantastic place, atmosphere was superb, crackers, party hats, Christmas music and lively banter. We were served Bucks fizz on arrival which was nicely chilled, then along came the food we started with prawn cocktails which had just the right amount of greenery and prawns and was not smothered with too much sauce. This was followed by a traditional... More

We had to ask for our plates to be taken then asked for the desert menu which didn't turn up for around 20 while that member of staff took an order off a... More

We have visited here before for lunch but today service was slow and the meals were not as good. A very poor hot chicken baguette, cheap and nasty children's pizza and tasteless mushy peas, what a shame.

Simple menu but with a good variety. Lovely setting, very cosy and located right next to the hotel which is very handy for lazy days when you don't want to venture too far and just enjoy the hotel. Food was great and service very friendly.
