There were 23 of us visiting the area to run a race so we knew it was going to be difficult to eat out together. The staff here were very accommodating. The food is perhaps a little over priced for what it is but there was nothing wrong with it. I had a beef and Merlot pie with mash and... More

Decided on this venue for Mother's Day and what a treat! Came as a table of 8 and that was no bother for them! Food was delicious and came out very promptly! The portion sizes were ideal and service was great! Nothing was too much bother or a problem! Will be returning and recommending to everyone we know

Nipped in around 4:30 for some lunch after a busy day at work and the staff never fail to look after me, as they do all their customers. Food as always up to a great standard. It's a wonderful asset to Kendal and I can't stress enough how much I recommend The Wakefield Arms

Served by Erin, she was very nice to us. Kids enjoyed the food and the colouring crayons . Very child friendly. The food was nice but took a while to arrive. A nice choice of food to pick from.

We went to the Wakfield Arms on 13/2/17 for an early valentines celebration. The atmosphere was cosy and comfortable and the food and were excellent and very good value for money. It is our local Table Table restaurant and we go there quite often.
