The Globe Inn (Kendal)

8 Market Place, Kendal, LA9 4TN
The Globe Inn (Kendal) Outside

The Globe Inn is a traditional pub that is superbly located in the centre of Kendal. This pub tends to attract those who prefer a quiet pint or meal, rather than those looking for a lively night out, and the traditionally styled interiors lend themselves to a calm, yet friendly atmosphere.

The Globe is owned by Thwaites, but there is little to indicate that this is a chain pub, with a warm and friendly welcome from the family who run it. The pub holds regular events, including a weekly folk music evening.

Food & Drink

This is a Thwaites pub owned pub, but that doesn’t prevent it from selling a changing selection of real ales, with three available on handpump. Thwaites (owned by Marstons) ales feature heavily behind the bar, but you will also find ales from other Marstons breweries here, including Cumbrian brewery Jennings.

The wine list is a standard list produced for Thwaites pubs, with all the basics covered and eight varieties available by the glass. The pub stocks a wide selection of gins, and you will find a good choice of other spirits, as well as soft drinks.

The Menu

Food is served twice a day and can be eaten downstairs in the bar area, or upstairs on a mezzanine dining room. The proprietors proudly claim that all of the ingredients are sourced from local suppliers and all dishes are prepared from scratch. During the lunchtime service there is a choice of sandwiches, hot baguettes, and other light bites.

The inn’s main menu has a good number of choices, with salads, burgers, and traditional pub favourites all available, along with daily specials. There are choices for vegetarians and children can order half portions of most items on the menu, with plenty to appease fussy appetites.

Other Features

  • The Globe welcomes dogs in all areas of the pub.
  • The pub has a large flat screen television in the bar area. It screens free-to-air channels, such as BBC News, and during major events that are screened on Freeview, such as the World Cup, the pub will occasionally show them, often providing free snacks for half time.
  • A resident folk band performs at the pub each Tuesday evening and on every second Thursday of the month there is a folk night. On Friday and Saturday evenings, patrons can choose their own music to listen to.
  • A quiz is held once a month, usually on a Tuesday. It costs £2.50 per person and includes snacks. The money raised from the quiz is donated to local charities.
