Glad we could provide a refuge from the unseasonably wet & windy weather. Liz our chef does do a great line in energy boosting cakes!

Found the warehouse cafe by accident whilst exploring 'The Yards' in Kendal. Relaxing atmosphere with comfy chairs and sofas. Great coffee and hot chocolate and delicious quiche at reasonable prices. Didn't try rest of items, but all looked very tasty. Lovely garden outside.

Loads to do and always something going on. From the cinema to live acts and the bar and its food, I couldn't recommend it more. If you need something to do, the Brewery Arts Centre is the heart of most of Kendal's entertainment.

Thanks for the great review and we're glad you enjoyed our pizzas so much. The Sunday 'Beat the Clock' deal is a popular option!

Been here before, but came tonight to watch a performance in the Malt Room. Staff were friendly and helpful, the venue is well kept. Would definitely return. My only criticism is the awful chairs in the malt room! So hard and uncomfortable!

We have a car park at The Brewery, but get here early as it does fill up quickly. Otherwise Abbot Hall car park is just across the road.
