“Fabulous”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Kendal residents are lucky to have this place on their doorsteps.

We moved here a few months ago and the Brewery has become a firm favourite. Good coffee and cake in the Warehouse Cafe, tasty pizza and beer in the Vaults bar, great bands in the main hall, interesting screenings at the cinema. Brilliant.

“Have the cinima to yourself!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I liked the way it was one endless and fascinating warren with very friendly staff.
It was like stepping back a little in time in terms of décor but that was what appealed.

“A lovely place to spend wet days in The Lake District”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This place is my "local" cinema,music,arts centre and is just great.
A lovely old converted brewery with great,friendly local staff. One bar has HUGE oak barrels with tables and seating inside to have your drinks and home made yummy Pizzas and beers from a wide range of local breweries.
In summer (a frame of mind in The Lakes!!) they put on very interesting displays,music festivals etc.It's run as a Trust type of business and everyone involved with it seems to love working there,a real pleasure to see nowadays.
