My "Toulouse Sausage" was superb - piping hot, meaty and full of flavour and served with some great mashed potato and veg. Fran & Ian, the owners, are so friendly and welcoming and, for a short while, we could forget the trials... More

We ate here when visiting Kendal after reading such amazing reviews and were staying in the premier inn around the corner. The place as mentioned by many others is a little cosy, but there was a nice atmosphere.

On the evening I called them to see if I could bring a cake and they were very accommodating!! We arrived and I went in first as my partner was parking the car! We did arrive 10 mins... More

You can tell how much love and effort has gone into the meal and it is always gorgeous. Cannot recommend enough. I am vegetarian and so usually really struggle to... More

The food was lovely, well presented and good value. Good selection of drinks. The only thing to mention is that the restaurant has a rather cramped feel.
