Excellent food, prepared in house. Service with a smile, nothing too much trouble. My favourite is the fishcakes followed by Tiramisu. Evening menu also available.

Popped in for lunch today. Staff are very friendly. Decor bright, clean and tidy. My husband enjoyed the meat and potato pie with mushy peas. I must admit I was very jealous when I saw it! I had the lovely vegetable soup and a freshly made sandwich with side salad. All very tasty and good value. I would recommend for... More

Stopped for tea and a bacon sandwich when passing thru Kendal. Neither disappointed. Plenty tables in a modern setup with friendly service and reasonable prices. Would go again.

As a veggie I struggle to find suitable food. Especially in Kendal as everywhere seems to serve meat only! However the vegetarian options here were great and the prices were relatively reasonable. Would go again.

Once again, an excellent steak pie and chips, followed by a scrumptious tiramisu. Excellent value, a comfortable, bright dining room and friendly, attentive service. Ticks all the boxes and couldn't be more central.

Went here a few weeks ago with my wife and our son. Overall impressions were not great. The service was average, our order was wrong (missing soup) and drinks were served without ice on a cold day, we had to ask. Servers were pleasant however, and happily rectified mistakes. Food was sub par. The sandwiches that were supposed to come... More

Trying to find a family place to eat for 8 in Kendal on a Friday night was looking grim until we booked a table at Pumpkins Bistro and it was great. 5 adults and 3 older kids were spoiled for choice of main courses and they were still happy to adapt menu items to cater for fussy eaters. Service was... More
