This is a lovely gastro pub set in the countryside on the outskirts of Kendal, Cumbria. The building has been beautifully restored, there are open fires which burn during the winter and stone flagged floors and salvaged furnishing. On arrival at the pub I’ve always received a warm welcome from the staff. The pub is family friendly (high chairs, games and newspapers are available) and the food is excellent, varied and served all day. Be warned, some of the portions (such as the fish and chips) are very large so be hungry before you arrive! You can eat at the bar or in a restraint section downstairs or in either of two dining rooms upstairs or in the beer garden. If you have disability it would be worth mentioning this when booking as the toilets are located downstairs.
The pub has opened a sister gastro pub further down the road and so if the Strickland is overbooked you may be able to get a seat at the next best place. I would advise booking ahead, particularly for weekend evenings.
The Strickland area has a good provision of walks and the Strickland Castle is on the doorstep. The pub also organises music night although I have not attended any of these. This gastro pub has an excellent atmosphere and caters well for he family. Kerry the Manageress runs this place well and understands good hospitality.
