Sitting in this lovely, airy restaurant you can forget that you are just a few steps away from the very centre of this pretty and bustling market town. The food is unpretentious and delicious - home cooking at it's very best. The prices are good too. Service is excellent and this is a great meeting place.

Popped in again as hadn't been in for a while. Still great service and friendly. Good food although the special pie of the day didn't come with chips. Had to be and extra. Would have liked Parmesan cheese for my pasta but maybe that's just for Italian restaurants! Portions have been reduced as well but that's the same with everything.... More

Very impressed ... a lovely clean bistro with prettty decor. A great menu with plenty of dishes to suit all. I had the Special sweet potato and aubergine korma and it was just fab. My Mum had a ham sandwich and handcooked chips which were very tasty. Great service, very friendly staff... we are going back ..

We stopped here for lunch and had a really good meal for fairly reasonable prices. Staff were attentive even though it was really busy over lunch time. Would happily return.

We've encountered the restaurant by a chance while seeking for a quick dinner. The place looked warm and inviting so decided to try it. The food was nice, fresh and tasty. The service was great! We got to the restaurant 15 minutes before closing and they accepted us immediately. Definitely a great place for dining with the family or friends.

Dropped in by chance for lunch and was really pleased so will definatly be back. I had the fish cakes which were lovely, they came with salad and jacket potato although you could choose to have veg and chips for £6.95 this seemed good value as the jacket potato with single filling was around £5. I also loved the tartare... More

Liked this place so much we ate there twice whilst staying in Kendal for a few nights. Honest food, nothing overly fancy good wine and reasonably priced. Recommended. Not open every evening (Thu-Sat I think).

Was looking for somewhere to eat in Kendal when we noticed this place just off the main street. We looked in the window at the menu and decided to try it. So glad we did. The food was excellent and extremely well priced. Definitely worth returning to for our next trip to Kendal.

The food here was really tasty and the menu satisfied the most fussy of us. It was tipping down with rain and we were soaked through, couldn't have been made more welcome. Great veggy/ vegan and gluten free food.

Called here for breakfast. It was cheap but very greasy. The service was good and the waitress friendly
