Visited the moon for the evening meal on a Saturday evening. The starter of duck and hens egg with broth was the star of the night so tasty. The service was excellent and a good relaxed atmosphere. Will be popping back soon.

A relaxed restaurant in the main street in the centre of Kendal. An usually good choice of vegan/vegetarian meals.We were dining with 2 vegans but we actually all chose vegetarian or vegan options. Its lovely not to be hurried.

Friends and I are road-tripping through the U.K. and had our one week anniversary of travel friendship dinner at the Moon. Food was delicious, Danny and Kat took excellent care of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I was the only one in the place at lunchtime, but the waiter was quite cheerful. Had a very nice salmon sandwich, at a quite reasonable price.

Went for light lunch. They were very welcoming and the food was really good. Brie and cranberry sandwich - very generous portions. Chips to die for. Would definitely recommend. They also have a mains menu which looked very appetising.

I ate here recently, while walking the Dales Way and overnighting in Kendal. The food at the Moon is just brilliant, beautifully cooked and presented with friendly, efficient service. A jewel for Kendal to cherish.

We don't have a menu on here I'm afraid but it is on our website. We are due to bring in our summer menu later this week too.
