The Artisan cafe that was Booth's food area was delightful, and always had a wait to be seated, as it was so rightly popular. The new arrangement that is self-service is a disappointing development. The service was slow, the food now lacking flair and the ambience quite lost. Shame.

We were looking forward to eating there as on previous visits the food and service have been excellent, on arrival we saw dirty tables piled... More

This café/ restaurant used to be a very good reason to visit Kendal. Then Booths' management decided to shake things up. It is now a self-service café (they claim) with a much reduced and unimaginative menu. The food comes out of the kitchen swiftly but generally cold, whatever you choose. Service was never prompt but used to be courteous; no... More

This restaurant is really lovely inside and the menu is varied and has a range of snacks, light meals, afternoon tea and hot dishes to suit everybody's taste. When we visited they were very understaffed for a Saturday lunchtime and the three front of house people were unconcerned with the growing queue at the till and took their time serving.... More

Never been to a booths cafe before and won't ever be going back to one again. The tables needed a good wipe down, full of crumbs and dirty dishes laying everywhere. Glad we only had a coffee. Well should I say glad, I had a black coffee which was luke warm and weak. Hubby had a milky coffee which he... More

Wrong order and cold soup. Waitress was forgetful. Will give this place a miss next time. Too expensive for what it is.

My wife and I used to visit the restaurant in Booths regularly. It was a real treat - well cooked quality food, served by pleasant staff at a reasonable price. It was the perfect combination and was deeply appreciated. After a break of a few years we visited again last Friday. What a disappointment. Gone was the interesting menu with... More

I've no idea what happened between the last time we ate here and now. The menu is shocking, What was once wonderfully varied and interesting on an (almost) a3 size piece of paper has now been boiled down to something that fits (practically) on an a5 sheet. They've gone for the "quirky" look of not actually writing what is each... More

Me & my Dad visited Booths cafe at Kendal today. We haven't been to Kendal for a while and always enjoy visiting Booths for the good food and excellent service. We were so disappointed today.
