Arts, crafts and culture - you'll find them all here and dogs are allowed too - but only outside. The Warehouse, at the lower end, serves a limited range of coffee, cakes, soup and sandwiches and is a nice meeting place, with tables outside.

A new chef and menu makes this an ideal place for early evening bar meal or pre cinema restaurant meal. Well cooked food but it's very popular so have to wait a while to get served. Pizzas are nice and crispy. Need more staff.

Visited the BAC cinema three times in the last 4 weeks and enjoyed every trip. Great facilities and comfortable cinema seats with lots of leg-room. Highly recommended for a get away from it all way of spending a few hours.

The Arts Centre is off one of the main streets in Kendal and there is parking available. It is pay and display costing less after 5pm (approx time), very reasonable. Went to the cinema, you have to go to the box office first to purchase tickets which is situated on the ground floor opposite the grass area. The service was... More

Stopped here for a coffee on a visit to Kendal. What a fantastic venue! We could have stayed here for hours with a book. The seating was extremely comfortable and great value. Would advise anyone to take a trip, simplicity done very well.

We visited in Feb 17 to see Livewire. The Arts Centre is very easy to find, and has a bar and restaurant plus a cinema too. For a small market town like Kendal this is a massive boost for trade and a good focal point for community events. The main function room has a very low ceiling so the stage... More

Can't recommend this enough, ate sweet potato and herb soup. Delicious and inexpensive. Service cute, and a sun trap warm enough to eat outside in mid February in Cumbria. Beautiful site well worth looking at.
