“lovely carvery - can cope with large table - friendly staff :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

A self served meal for a large party which was fab, hot plates, plenty of veg, good selection of condiments - quick service at bar and friendly staff.

We've been before and will return again - keep up the good work Romneys!

“Birthday Meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We went for a Birthday meal out with family and friends, 7 in total, arriving at 5;15 for our pre booked table. We ordered our drinks on arrival and were shown to our table, where we awaited our drinks to arrive, which they did after about 15 mins and then we were left to browse the not so much choice menu. we then had to go looking for someone to take our order at 6;10 as they seem to have forgotten us!
Our meal eventually came after another half hour wait, we ordered some spicy chips with a dip on the side which we shared. I took a bite out of a chunky chip dipped in relish and felt a crunch, and had to take a lump out of my mouth. I looked at what is was.... a chard of glass!!
When the waitress was near I told her what I had found and her reply was " we don't have any glass in the Kitchen"
I showed her the glass and she was very unapologetic
They knocked the price of the chips off the bill but didn't seem to be very bothered at all

“The Food was very good, however”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

the service was very slow. Very clean, very attractive, great views, great atmosphere. True it was a Saturday afternoon & we were part of a large pre-booked party, & true they were very busy with passing trade with other large parties. We were seated 1/2 hour late, the first course arrived 15 minutes later, mains 30 minutes later and pudding another 40 minutes. I feel the staff were just over whelmed with it all, perhaps a training in time management and customer care would not do a miss.

“good meal, nice wines, great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

we booked Romneys for our staff xmas party last saturday and had a really great night.Ffood was good ( shame about the scone with the Terrine! ) and arrived quickly even though they were busy. what we all remarked on was the friendliness of the staff - they couldn't have been more helpful even though some of the party arrived late they re-jigged the table times so that we were not rushed as they had a table booked straight after us. we were then allowed to take our time over a nice meal with some lovely wines.

all in all a very pleasureable night out and Romneys is a great addition to the Kendal scene. if you like real ale this is a must and their wine list is an absolute bargain. I eat in a few restaurants around the country and their wines are topnotch and some are below retail price!

just watch out for the glass floor!!
