Usual excellent standard - fantastic lunch

We have now visited The Restaurant numerous times over the past couple of years and never had ordinary food yet. This occasion was no different. We came for lunch and for the price I don't know where you could get better - £10.50 for three high quality courses and coffee. Our daughter has been... read more

Second visit for one in our party, and first for me. Wonderful food, wonderful service and a great location. The food and service would be well placed in the best of restaurants. Splendid all round. Very highly recommended.

Pre Valentines 'Sparkling' lunch including glass of Prosecco with Raspberry cassis. Selection of dainty freshly baked warm bread rolls to accompany starter. We both opted for the asparagus risotto with truffle oil and mouth wateringly tasty local lakeland lamb for main course. Daintly presented desserts in shape of a sailing ship, followed by choice of tea and various coffees. Students... More

Overall an excellent meal. But let down by the main course which was a bit on the small side, the meat was also very dry. The waiters and waitresses did very well until the end which was let down when 3 people on our table never got any coffee. There was nobody about to ask, they all disappeared !

The college is our favourite place to eat in Kendal. We love the youthful enthusiasm of the students, steered by the gracious charm of Graeme. As a couple in advancing years, we delight in seeing the insecurity of "first years" as they mature and blossom into the self confidence of the "third year". As for the food - well sourced... More

okay, I may be biased as an offspring is currently one of the students...BUT....this was really lovely food at lunchtime. Three courses followed by coffee all for just under £11. The service is exceptional, the serving staff are polite, courteous and knowledgeable about the food they serve, the food itself was just so well cooked, and we were even treated... More

My first visit to The Restaurant, and I was not disappointed. The food was excellent quality and the service was top notch. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

It's always a delight to watch the students learn their trade and the choice and quality of food on offer is always excellent quality and superb value. Almost an up-market 'Pensioners's Special' !!!
