Lovely little spot

Visited Kendal on Sunday and stumbled across the globe, lovely little place with restaurant upstairs. Had veggie burger which was gorgeous and my partner had Cumberland sausage and mash. Really good quality food in nice surroundings. Friend staff who were really attentive and made you feel welcome... read more

We are a family group of 10 staying nearby. 2 of the group are visiting from America. This was our third visit this week. Each time we have been made most welcome. The food was excellent with a large choice. The service couldn't have been better. Highly recommended.

We're made very welcome as we were a family group of 8. Found a table upstairs and found we could make it bigger so we could all sit at one place. Ordered various food and when it came was well presented, hot , and good portion size. All staff made us very welcome and were most helpful , deserve a... More

After walking around Kendal for over an hour looking for somewhere to eat. Manager&Manageress were welcoming and friendly and happy to recommend different meals. Lamb was perfect as was the Steak and ale pie and the gammon steak filled the plate! would make a bee line for this place should we visit Kendal again. 5* from all of us

We were after a low key pub that welcomed children, somewhere we had a choice of where to sit for food and weren't crammed in or uncomfortable...............................and this is what we got ! We were offered an open window seat in the restaurant as it was rather a warm evening. The mixed grill filled the grumbling stomach of my fella... More

Aggressive behaviour from local drinkers at the bar towards 'tourists/southerners' including swearing at us so we decided to leave the pub. Can't comment on the food or drink as we didn't wait around that long - shame because it looked like a nice pub. I would of thought this attitude was long gone but appears to alive & well in...

Stopped in for a sandwich with friends . Nothing special , not a great choice . To be fair the new land lord had just taken over, might give it another go .

Thank you for taking the time and effort to post a review on eating a sandwich.What can I say other than that sandwich fillings are not exciting and eating one is not adventurous. Hopefully you will re visit again and sample one of our signature dishes. The landlord and landlady have been at the premises for two years. The menu... More

We were in Kendal for a day and found this pub through Tripadvisor. We were met by the landlord who was extremely friendly and welcoming. Service was good, food served in a reasonable time and tasted great. I would recommend this pub to anyone

Friendly staff, high chairs available. Good food, had to wait a while for food to arrive but freshly cooked. Reasonably priced.
