Came across this cafe/restaurant visiting Kendal. Interesting old building with a maze of rooms and corridors. Nice atmosphere friendly staff and good service. Full fresh sandwiches a meal in themselves. Well worth a visit, good value.

Popped in for a spot of early lunch today after a long walk. Myself and husband both had a Welsh rarebit with added toppings and they were really enjoyable. Quick and friendly service. Slightly pricey though.
