They only do food 12-4 daily. I personally did not eat there so cannot comment. Bar staff were welcoming. A short walk from the... More

Visited Kendal around lunchtime last Saturday and spotted The Globe, a pub with real ale and a decent menu so in went the four of us. Quiet dining room upstairs, so away from the bar. Well balanced menu and fast friendly service. Food well presented and tasty, although there should have been a note on the menu saying how hot... More

A few locals at the bar entering into a political debate loudly. We had a drink and decided we didn't want too eat here and drank... More

Sat out front in the beer garden. Nice friendly place for a quick pint. The sort of place you can sit and watch the world go by.

This is by no means an act of jealousy or indeed homophobia as I see the negative reviews are classed as, this is an honest review from personal experience. The food and service was atrocious, I didn't eat much as it looked and tasted so bad my stomach was turning, yet felt too intimidated by the surly manner of the... More

Went for dinner and it was as expected for pub food. Average service and food at an average price. That is why it is getting an average score.
