What a lovely pub! It's in the South Lakes so quite easy to get to (It took us a bit over an hour from Chorley).
Great views, nice decor and not only can you eat lovely food and stay in the accommodation they have there (that looks very nice) but you can just go in the bar and have a pint of one of the many beers they have on offer. Yes a pub that is (almost) still a pub!!
*This place is also special to me as my cousin is the head chef...but saying that he wasn't cooking when we visited, so that hasn't biased my review!! (honest!!)
Favorite Dish: I had a lovely dish of wood pigeon served with wild mushrooms and game chips - delicious!
My husband had ham hock and black pudding terrine with a crispy breaded soft poached egg (I don't know how they did that but it looked great!!)

I was very much surprised how early the shops close in Kendal.
When I came back from my hike to Hill Top Farm, it was about 5:30 pm and most of the shops were either already closed or just closing. Even the mall next to the town hall was closing. I hadn't planned on doing lots of shopping, but still needed a few items.Luckily Boots was still open, until 6 pm.
There may be a bigger mall outside the town, but for those tourists without a car, these early closing times can be difficult, so plan accordingly.

When going out in Kendal be aware of the dangers in the Town itself, there is quite a bit of violence in Kendal for such a small town, also, drugs are a big problem in the area, vandalism, car damage tyres slashed be aware that Kendal for such a small town has it all, even though it is advertised as the Lake District a lovely picturesque town, the town itself is a nice little Town it is just the people who live in the area that spoil it for everyone else. I moved to Kendal with the Lake District Dream lovely quiet rural position and in 3 years all it has been is my children being attacked, my car being vandalised twice and just 3 years of hell. Before staying here just check out the area first.

Having lived just south of Kendal, for a long time now. Not always wanting to head off to the hills. I have recently walked the Lancaster to canal through to Preston. Sometimes long distances, sometimes just a couple of hours. It only seems very busy around the Lancaster, Morcombe at the weekends. Try veering of along the River Lune and follow the river through Lancaster and out to Glasson Dock.. and there are no hills, you dont need maps or a compass, there are even pubs on the wander.
