Pubs and Bars

Pubs and bars come in many shapes and sizes in Kendal – from cosy and traditional to cool and contemporary. Whichever you choose you’re sure of a warm welcome. Don’t forget to try some local ale, and listen out for entertaining stories from the locals.

Our town might have its roots in tradition, but we love a bit of contemporary living too. So if you fancy exciting cocktails in modern surroundings, you won’t be disappointed.
You’ll find plenty of gigs in Kendal too – from blues to folk and punk.
