My husband and I went here for dinner. Really lovely food, good choice on the menu. We had a main and dessert and both were as good as each other :) The staff were very hard working and very helpful. Highly recommend.

Wandering around Kendal looking for somewhere to eat, when we stumbled across this nice little Mediterranean-esque restaurant. Had a choice of table and the staff were nice and welcoming. Tried the cassoulet and was not disappointed. Initially I was a bit unsure at first glance, but once I tucked in, I didn't look back. The meals are all great value... More

Friends and I regularly have lunch in Kendal and love Pumpkins. Food good and freshly cooked, prices reasonable and my basset hound was welcome to lie quietly under the table. I've also eaten breakfast here and that's just as good. Oh yes, the staff are friendly too

Called in had a couple of coffees and a pud/cake each. Pleasant enough would be happy to go again. Like the comfy chairs at the front of the cafe.
