The music scene here is second to none, all the local bands I've ever seen here have been worth seeing, some are outstanding. Plus they regularly have well known acts on for which they charge a small admission. It's great that there is such a place in a small town like Kendal, other pubs here are so half-hearted about putting bands on and really aren't geared up for it.
I love the little quirky touches in Bootleggers, all sorts of weird and wonderful things around the walls and above the stage. I've always found the staff friendly, they have some great beers and in general the place has a super atmosphere. It's always buzzing at weekends, especially when one of the popular local bands are on.
If you'd like a pint of mild and a quiet chat about Jesus, try the Ring-o-Bells. If you want to go where it's all happening, go to Bootleggers.
Best bar in town.
