We stopped for a meal on the way back from northumberland raking a leisurely and long route back... 4 things to say about this pub. 1. The food was pretty good we both enjoyed it. 2. The dumb waiter situation was a bit odd. 3. The cutlery wasn't clean. 4. There was a lot of family interaction going on which... More

On walking in ,we were met by a horrendous smell and a awful atmosphere,we looked at menu ,decided not to eat ,same as next three groups thru door ,we had one drink ,twice the price of most places in Kendal. There's a reason it was empty !!!

We visited this pub in the early afternoon to eat. After going upstairs to the dining room a good humoured chap approached us, whom I'm presuming is the landlord. From then onwards, it all gets a little strange. The kitchen is downstairs, so all food and drinks are sent up in the lift. The orders are given to the kitchen... More

Found this little place due to it being in a central location. Entering the premises, we got a very stale smell, the bar is small dark and dingy and the decor very dated. The guy behind the bar is very jolly,curtious and welcoming, on ordering our drinks we found a seat and checked out the menu. Within a couple of... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay in Kendal and visited The Globe on our first lunchtime. All 6 of us had the pie which was absolutely delicious. Peter was the perfect landlord so friendly and welcoming and he goes over and above to make sure visitors are looked after and welcomed. Returned the following teatime for just one drink... More

We took a day trip to Kendal and decided to have our lunch at The Globe Inn. We didn't know what to expect but noticed that it had a 5 hygiene rating so we knew the kitchen would be clean and everything prepared safely. Me and my friend both went for the steak, mushroom and ale pie with chips and... More

The beer is always on good form, and I've found the food excellent value. Had the Lancaster Bomber ale-and-steak pie today, and it was excellent, as were the winter veg. A very decent pie-and-a-pint lunch, and good value.

Returned New Years Eve with a large party and the food was outstanding as was the service and the staff. Home made pies and fresh vegetables all served hot and delicious. No need to look for any other venue in Kendal as this is the best. Well done Vivienne and Peter you have a fabulous establishment.
