Called in here with the family and our dog for a quick bite to eat whilst wandering around Kendal. Dogs are only allowed outside but we hit lucky with the weather so it wasn’t a problem. The entrance to the cafe was a little difficult...More

Previously attended when the Mountain Film Festival is on, when this is the hub, where arrangements, the tented village, organisers and many events occur. Without all the festival palaver we can see this sizeable venue, able to simultaneously support a mix of activities and events...More

Not just a cinema, but an arts centre with displays, restaurants and good bars. We had good stylish food in the bar before a show. Great.

Recently went to watch a band here, arrived early and had booked a table, staff seemed unsure and slightly confusing re table, pizza was nice but rather tight on the toppings. Great venue but be prepared to get extremely hot in the malt store.

Excellent sell out concert but surely after all this time still nothing has been done about the inadequate staffing of the bars. The downstairs bar didn't open till after 6.30 and a massive queue built up. With just one person serving a lot of people...More

We have a car park at The Brewery, but get here early as it does fill up quickly. Otherwise Abbot Hall car park is just across the road.
