“Excellent local food, and service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

After struggling to find traditional food and hospitality on a Monday in Kendal we dropped in on the off-chance to Romneys. Excellent hostess sat us straight away, food just what we were looking for (Cumberland sausage and mash, english pea risotto etc) all cooked really well and accompanied by great choice of beverages and a perfectly pulled pint! Competitively priced. Would higly recommentd

“Repeat visit”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Once again we chose Romneys for a midweek lunch. Our host, Andy, was cheerful as ever and keen to point out, and recommend several CAMRA approved real ales and cider. I had the carvery, offering a choice of no less than four succulent roast meats, a yorkshire pudding the size of a small town, and selection of freshly cooked vegetables. Overall, a delicious meal. My partner opted for gammon egg and chips, once again, the food was hot, freshly cooked and enough to feed two ! If you visit Kendal, or like us are lucky enough to live here, give Romneys a try, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

“Excellent food, great service but room for improvement”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had dinner at Romney's for our wedding anniversary, I had booked earlier in the day and asked for a late booking 830pm, we were shown to our table which I was a bit disappointed with, it was tiny and we were really crammed in. Anyway we ordered the tapas sharer for starter which was beautiful, then I had fillet steak which probably was the best steak I have ever had, and my husband had steak and ale pie, slightly on the small side but delicious, the chips are AMAZING!!! At this point is was discussing with my husband how much I was enjoying being at romney's and how wonderful the food was and the staff etc etc, spoke too soon, after being asked pretty much all the time since we sat down if we were ok, and drinks re ordered etc we never got seen to again after our main courses were served?? Our plates weren't taken away, we didn't get asked or dessert, we never saw anyone again, and we were to the only table that hasn't been cleared, so in the end we had to go to the bar to pay our bill. Such a shame to what was looking like being a top night for food and service. All in all food is excellent, staff when they are on for are excellent, just need to keep on it. Def worth a visit though.

“Good pub tea”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for tea with friends, all the food was nicely cooked and full of flavour, good price and good portion sizes. Drinks aren't ridiculous prices and atmosphere was good, not too cold which it can be on previous occasions. Will be back.
