“Great for a family Sunday lunch with children and for coffee with friends.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We had a lovely meal at Romneys - we chose the carvery for both the adults and children, which was great - hot and tasty. The outside play area is what Kendal has been missing and it is great to be able to go for a meal and feel the whole family have enjoyed it, rahter than the kids whinging and the parents being paranoid! I have also been for coffee with friends and again the staff have been very attentive and accomodating, also the scones were absolutely delicious! The decor and atmosphere are lovely too/

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

My partner and I both had the carvery and as good as agreed that it was the best carvery we had ever had the food the service and friendliness of the staff were all excellent we had our children who really enjoyed the covered outdoor park and I am sure the outside terrace will prove popular in better weather unlike so many other pub refurbishments the fittings ooze quality and character with attention to detail such as the small door for children leading to the park there are several different areas and whilst we live out if the area and are unlikely to get the chance one can Imagine a cosy relaxing environment for a few drinks in the evening

“Romneys Food”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A party of 4 of us decided to try the newly refurbished Romneys for a meal on a recent Friday evening and had a table booked for 8.00pm. We had heard mixed reports on the dining experience from various people who had recently eaten there and the main complaint was cold food from the Carvery.

The decor and atmosphere were lovely and there were a good number of people in giving the place atmosphere. However it took an eternity to get served at the bar. We all dined from the menu . We were shown to our table up the step over the "wine cellar" and our orders were taken.

After an eternity - actualy 9.30pm (remember the table was reserved for 8.00pm) a waitress came to the table and enquired whether everything was alright to which we replied it might be if the food which we had ordered well over an hour earlier was actually delivered to us. The person in charge was obviously informed and came over and apologised for the delay and blamed the computerised ordering system and stated that the order had been lost, mislaid or whatever in the kitchen. By the time the food eventually arrived it was gone 10.00pm and I do not consider virtually 2 hours from ordering to be satisfactory.

My own choice was a Thai Green Curry and it was flavourless in the extreme with cold vegetable. Very unappetising. To compensate for the big error on the order we were not charged for the food but the experience certainly put us off wanting to return to dinine.

We would return to use the bar which has a good atmosphere. Maybe our experience can be put down to teething troubles on the new set up and not all the staff had got there acts together.

“Great improvement”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were a party of four ladies living locally none of whom had tried Romneys since its refurb. I have to say I was really impressed with the decor, it has the appearance of an upmarket wine bar in a city centre rather than a market town and is a definite bonus for Kendal.

It was very busy and I was glad I had booked a table. One of our party was a little disappolnted with the amount of choice on the menu and I would have liked to have seen a 'specials' board. Having said we all enjoyed our food very much, the only criticism was that it could have been a little hotter. Tim was our waiter and impressed us all with his professionalism and obvious interest in his job. We'll be back.
