After walking the main street in Kendal and finding nothing but pubs that didn't even serve food, we happened upon this place! It was packed (hardly surprising), with people who enjoy good food and good wine. My husband's "black pudding salad" was the culinary height of his visit to England. I had the lamb steak special that came with amazing... More

Tried to get a table for a Saturday night, but they were booked, so went Monday instead (closed Sunday). The. Deja-vu salad was delicious. I also had the sea bass, which was good. We didn't have dessert, but the ones we saw being delivered to other tables looked yummy.

As it was close to our holiday apartment we booked a Tuesday night....and got the last table!! Good choices of meals, confit de canard superb, assiette trio for dessert very good, starters were on the small side though but then we only paid £18 for 3 meals. Overall excellent.

We found this restaurant after almost giving up finding somewhere to eat, it was full but luckily someone had just left. Unfortunately, I can't recall all the dishes my partner and I had but we both had starters, main course and desserts. Everything was delicious, especially the combinations of flavours, in fact, the dessert was the weakest, it was fine... More

Recommended by our hotel while staying the weekend in Kendal. So glad we went. Great vibe, really nice atmosphere - rustic charm. The menu choice was excellent - the four of us picked a different starter and main - we all had a little try of each - every dish was delicious. The sweets were totally sublime - especially the...

Great food Our server, becki, was simply amazing. There was another girl who didn't service our table but the two of them were working really hard in a full restaurant. I really can't fault the service front of house. Our party had a little mix up with main course and had to wait a little longer for one of the... More

The atmosphere was nice but the food wasn't amazing. It was good but not a lot of choice. Felt quite limited to what I could eat and a bit pricey for what we had.

My friend and I called in on the off chance after a busy day sightseeing. Very accommodating and friendly atmosphere. Food was very good, only downside is that after starters and mains we were unable to manage a dessert. Excellent service.

Thank Solonow
