“Ignore the poor reviews - 1st Class experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We were staying in Bowness and had some fairly average meals out there, but had a day in Kendal and went for a carvery at Romneys - everything was 1st class, food, staff, service, we could not fault it. Could not believe the price either £7.25 for as much as you could eat-bargain!! My only disappointment was reading the poor reviews it does not deserve!!

“Happy Enough Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I always have a problem finding somewhere to eat in Kendal. Yes, I can be picky about quality, and I've no doubt there are loads of decent places to eat in the town, but the parking!!! Kendal is a nightmare!
So we were in town shopping and needed a quick bite and my wife suggested we try a certain venue and on aur way to it we passed Romneys' and it looked tidy enough and there was a car park too! Now, we'd been here before with the previous owners and it was OK so we decided to give it a go.
We didn't want much so we went with the snack-style menu - haddock gujons, BBQ ribs and some olives - 3 for £10. SCORE! Not big portions, but really enjoyable and dod the jod we wanted. The beer was good too. So 2 happy chappies here.
we found out from the waiter that they'd been refurbished and open for about 6 months, and do a daily carvery. Now then, I'm not a fan of carvery food - unless you get there as the place opens and everything is fresh, ot if the place is heaving and there's a good turn over of the vegetables. The carvey looked quite good - maybe we'll try it on another occasion as I've every confidence that we'll return.
If this kind of a venue is what you are looking for then I'd recommend it, if you want more fine dining then it's not the place for you.
WELL DONE! Keep it up, you were nice people and that is so important.

“Fabulous. Top marks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to go here by our hotel and were very impressed.

Fantastic service from warm and friendly staff matched by great food (fillet steak was just perfect).

We were celebrating and the staff really went out of their way to make it very special for us.

We'll definitely go back when we're next in Kendal in fact, I'd go back to Kendal especially to go back there.
