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

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' !!!

This is an exceptional restaurant as it is a training venue for all of the student staff with high expectations. You will not get finer food or service anywhere for the prices that are charged. It is not always open so look in advance for the schedule on the college website.

Lunch taken amidst other couples/friends/family parties and a bustling ambience under the watchful eye ot sommelier/supervisor Graeme Hedley who directs the students in his jovial relaxed manner about their service, almost like a film director!! Wonderfully presented food...starter pour moi - beetroot carpaccio with crispy Parma style ham whilst vegetarian niece had an 'egg florentine' served on a mini muffin.... More

This is such a great place to eat. Meeting the students and their tutor makes the whole experience really interesting and the food is excellent, especially considering you'd pay as much in a local cafe or tea room. Well worth a visit.

14th November was the night Robert Stacey from Castle Dairy was in the kitchen of The Restaurant at Kendal College with the students. An excellent meal with super service- the students did the college proud. The menu consisted of: Veloute of Jerusalem artichokes, Carmelised cep Risotto, Grilled Mackerel, Assiette of pork and Passion fruit bavarois. I have a diary intolerance... More
