The Wakefield Arms, Kendal Outside

Superbly located on the edge of Kendal’s town centre, the Wakefield Arms is a great choice for those who are seeking a no frills place to eat. Part of the Table Table chain, this pub is adjacent to Kendal’s Premier Inn, supplying the breakfasts and evening meals for guests of this hotel. The pub is popular with families, thanks to the extensive children’s menu, and its menu offers good value for money. This is a modern pub, with spacious interiors, and a quiet, welcoming atmosphere.

Food & Drink

The Wakefield Arms, Kendal pub

The Wakefield Arms is a pub that is more orienteered towards diners rather than drinkers. As a result, the bar stock covers all the basics, but little more. There is no real ale here, and just a small selection of draught beers and lagers from well-known national chains. The wine list is limited but has something to suit most tastes, and there is a good choice of spirits and soft drinks. As with other Premier Inn pubs, the Wakefield Arms serves Costa Coffee, with a varied choice of coffees available.

The Menu

The pub serves an internationally inspired menu that is standard across the entire chain. Food is available throughout the day. A full cooked breakfast with continental options is available in the morning, but unless you are staying in the hotel, you may need to book a table. The main menu is available throughout the day and has a good mixture of light bites, sharing platters, and more substantial dishes including steaks and burgers.

Portions are generous but if you still have room at the end there is a mouth-watering selection of desserts. On Sundays, between 11.30 and 4pm, a roast dinner is available. Choose from pork, chicken, beef, or a vegetarian option, accompanied with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, and vegetables. Children are well catered for here, with a menu that will appease most fussy eaters and the option to change sides.

Other Features

The pub has a car park that is shared with the Premier Inn, but there are charges applicable, and if you are not staying at the hotel you may find it cheaper to park elsewhere.
