Positive Reviews

Great location

The Station Inn is quite ideally located, at the edge of the beautiful Lake District in Kendal, Cumbria. It is close to the many scenic and beautiful attractions of the area, such as the world famous Lake Windermere. Station Inn is located at a ten-minute drive from the M6 Motorway, so it is not difficult to reach here.

Great food

The restaurant at Station Inn is highly rated as a great source of classic pub food, made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, by highly skilled and trained chefs. The breakfast here is highly appreciated as being satisfying and filling, setting one up for the day. The food is well prepared and nicely presented, with a great choice.

Good staff and Wi-Fi

The staff members here are extremely friendly and helpful, always ready to assist the guests in any way possible. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent, keeping the guests connected with home and business.

Negative Reviews

Careless with kids

Although the establishment is kid friendly with a large play area and high chairs in the restaurant, a few guests were shocked recently when hot coffee was passed over the heads of infants, with the server seeming to be totally oblivious to the fact that this was dangerous.

An odd disappointing meal

Although the food served here is generally excellent, an odd time a guest has reported that the meal was less than satisfying and could have been more carefully prepared.

Refurbishment needed

This inn is very good overall, but it is felt that it is time for an update on the look. The general appearance has lost the charm. Many of the fixtures and fittings are beginning to look worn and could do with a little sprucing up.
