Having visited this restaurant on numerous occasions when previously in the Lake District (and remembering loving the food) we turned up on spec on a freezing Monday evening to find all the tables were taken. We decided to sit in the bar area and wait for a table to become available - and enjoy a cocktail! Our wait wasn't long... More

We visit italian restaurant. Food was really nice big portion. Service was slow:( Manager ( I think he was manager) was really nice but one young waiter was rude, no smile, (sorry I no take orders) so what you doing there??? No professional. Manager and one lady looks busy. We definitely come back. Young guy need improve customer service

What a fantastic little eatery. The staff were really friendly. We had our 8 year old grandson with us and he enjoyed the meal too. We will definitely go again when next in Kendal.

While staying in the laws cottage for a few days this restaurant came highly recommended. We booked a table for 5.30pm and had no trouble booking. On arrival we was shown our window seat which was lovely, the seating is very comfortable. Drinks order was taken swiftly and just after the drinks arrived we had our good order taken. I... More

The music was way too loud and we had to wait 45 minutes despite our reservation. The lighting was very dark on the staircase and my grandmother who is in her seventies took quite a bad fall. Apart from all of this the food was ok and the staff reasonably friendly.

We had booked a table for a birthday party for 20:00. We had to wait upstairs in the bar until the table was ready. The music was so loud, one had to shout to make oneself understood. The seats were uncomfortable and after 15 minutes someone turned up with a couple of menus for us to choose our dinner. When... More

Perfect for families and good value at the happy hour. Family friendly menu and waiters. Tasty food and relaxed atmosphere. Music was a tiny bit too loud but that meant that my kids weren't disturbing anyone with their noise!

My mother was a slave to the roast and two or three veg, followed by home-made pudding. When I had my family I started out that way, but really it didn't fit our lifestyle. We prefer chilling at the pub and then coming home to something that's been simmering in the oven or making a preplanned dish from scratch. Now... More
