Served by Erin, she was very nice to us. Kids enjoyed the food and the colouring crayons . Very child friendly. The food was nice but took a while to arrive. A nice choice of food to pick from.

We went to the Wakfield Arms on 13/2/17 for an early valentines celebration. The atmosphere was cosy and comfortable and the food and were excellent and very good value for money. It is our local Table Table restaurant and we go there quite often.

Called in as we had some Table Table vouchers to use and we really enjoyed the food. The chicken and ribs were perfect and the after eight sundae delightful. Drinks were a bit slow to arrive but overall service was good.

We went as a group of 8. No one took our order for an hour and a half, until we got some ones attention. Turns out he shouldn't have been taking orders as he doesn't understand a word of English! We waited 2 more hours for our food, of which 6 out of 8 meals were wrong. Thankfully Erin, the... More

We booked a table here as we arrived in Kendal late afternoon, and had signed up for Premier Inn's meal deal offer. On the bright side, most of the food was quite nice, and does offer good value for money as part of the meal deal. However the service left a lot to be desired - we had to wait... More
