The restaurant is licensed and has an unfussy pleasant ambience enhanced by attractive artwork, some by a local artist, which gives it a Mediterranean feel. The menus are varied and very reasonably priced, all the food is sourced locally and our meat is predominately produced in Cumbria.

We found Pumpkins by chance and were a little unsure as there was only one table of people eating but we were so glad we’d opened the door. From the moment we walked in to leaving we felt relaxed, well looked after and well fed. The food was absolutely delicious, nicely presented, colourful and... read more

Just what you'd expect from a bistro. Home cooked food, nothing too fancy but friendly and hospitable. Ideal for families as it is basic and simple with plenty of space.

I was so impressed with the pumpkin bistro in Kendal. The menu was so varied and had something for everyone in my family including vegetarians. We have looked everywhere for a restaurant which does fish and chips for my younger sister and something vegetarian for me. All the food was amazing! I had a delicious roast vegetable and hallouimi cheese... More

Stumbled upon Pumpkin's Bistro in the search for a cafe with a toilet for our 2 year old. The food was very good, we especially enjoyed the chilli wrap. The children were welcomed and there was a good variety for them to eat. The service was quick and efficient. It was a nice place to have lunch and relax. Would... More

We stumbled across this restaurant and were thrilled to fine such a wife range of vegetarian options on the menu - all of which sounded delicious. While my husband went with the Mediterranean chicken (which he loved) I went for the vegetarian chilli with couscous - it was delicious! The service was fabulous - the waitress was attentive and chatty,... More
