I recently arranged to meet up at the Brewery with friends and children to see a film and we decided to make an evening of it by having a bite to eat first in the Vats bar. The food was superbe, beautifully cooked pizzas for the kids, and we both opted for the surf & turf, with olives and mixed... More

The Brewery Arts centre offers a wide range of attractions for both young and old. The staff are helpful and friendly even when very busy. There is a small café , a larger restaurant , a cinema and many creative opportunities for everyone.

Lovely surprise to find this located tucked up a side street off the high street. Enjoyable peaceful gardens with some seating... we wanted to eat for lunch, at the Courtyard, so somewhat disappointed when told there was only sandwiches, Panini's and soup of the day. For children this is not what they wanted. But for adults was fine, Relaxed peaceful... More

We spent a day in Kendal and ended it with a visit to the Brewery Arts Centre. The courtyard was perfect for a cool drink in the sun before dinner. We ate in the restaurant and the pizzas and desserts were excellent and reasonably priced. We then went to the cinema and that too was great. Brilliant resource for locals... More

Good food in the Vats Bar and a great place to meet friends. The theatre is modern and not too large. Good artists and plays on.

A good venue for Kendal, where music, comedy, theatre & the arts can be found We were unfortunate to chose a night in the bar when the bass & drums of the band downstairs shook the room & made conversation tough. Some top quality acts visit, see when is on if you are in town. Just check the schedule before... More

Great location for the bike festival we went to - easy to get to and find. Drinks a little on the expensive side but otherwise a great little place.

Whenever I fancy a quick pizza there's only one place in Kendal I go and that here. The service is quick, atmosphere good and the pizza is great. Not a place to go for a full on evening meal but great to visit otherwise

So glad you enjoyed the cakes. Liz the Cafe manager bakes them all here in the kitchens. We're all partial to them as well! More
