Great atmosphere. Lovely attentive staff and good food. We were a large group and we had a fantastic evening.
Pre-cinema diners quickly fill the main, Grainstore restaurant. However, dishes from the same menu can be ordered in the adjacent Vats Bar. I have had mixed experiences with the newish tapas menu, but on this occasion, the minced chicken and cheese croquettes were fine and the cheese board not bad at all, albeit a bit limited in choice.

The Brewery Arts Centre's Vats Bar looks great and the food is good. There's a reasonable selection of real ales and a nice feel to the place. It's just a pity the service is so poor. Our pizzas were delivered to the wrong table and the young woman on the bar ignored my request for no ice in a rum... More
Unhelpful unfriendly,continually "texting" behind the bar staff,warm beer served from pipeline that'd been in there for 18 hours,unkempt,not very clean surroundings.Opened 10 minutes later than advertised and meant we then couldn't eat prior to the cinema advertised start (that too was 20 minutes late in starting!).You have been warned!!
This is a lively place, that everyone seems to flock to in Kendal. we were lucky to get a table in one on of the large old barrels! really! which was novel and comfortably private, for such a busy place.

We were terribly sorry to hear of that you were so disappointed by your experience at the Brewery.

We do have a process for reviewing all complaints so that we can improve... More
Always been quirky and unique ambiance but now the food matches up with superb quality fusion Tapas. The pulled duck with bacon and quinoa / pomegranate salad with a side order of spicy wedges was superb. The service can sometimes be a little hit and miss but was quick and friendly particularly as served outside in the hidden gardens. Sensational!
