Eating Out

Kendal and The Lake Distict are home to many amazing places to eat and drink. We have Mitchelin star restaurants (L'Enclume in Cartmel and The Samling near Ambleside), fantastic local restaurants in Kendal and Lake District pubs offering a fantastic atmosphere and good, traditional food. 

There's also no shortage of Breweries, including micro breweries and larger breweries such as The Watermill at Ings. You can also find family-owned cafes, perfect for a coffee, cake or toasted sandiwich. You will never be short of options, and many pubs and cafes within the Lake District are Dog Friendly.
