Busy little spot, but excellent service. We hadn't booked, but they managed to fit us in, we had seafood pancake, Moroccan vegetarian tagine, and fish & chips. We all enjoyed our meal, great value for money, and the Tiramasu for pudding was delish!!

Soggy pie. Soggy chips. Drinks slammed on the table without a tray. No talking at all when serving us "enjoy your food" or "can I get you anything else". Service was quite half way. Dissapointing.

On weekend break in Kendal looking for some where nice to eat found it at Pumpkins. The house made pate was superb for a starter. I had the cassoulet again superb as was my wife,s lasagne. The freshly cooked fish and chips my brother and sister in law was massive and delicious. No room for dessert after the main courses... More

A really nice place, lovely decor, staff were very friendly and a lively atmosphere. We had lunch; cassoulet and ham and mushroom tagliatelle - both were delicious. Our daughters kids meal was great too, we pinched a few of the proper home made chips :) We were just passing through, but I'm sure this would be lovely in the evening... More

Arrived quite late while passing thru. Customer service by lovely lady. Food scrummy. Loved the red cabbage. The food was just what we wanted in pleasant surroundings and first class plus service.
