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.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at The Moon. Some of the dishes featured simple ingredients expertly cooked; others were more challenging inventions. Despite the unassuming location, the restaurant delivered a terrific experience. Highly recommended.

This is a superb restaurant. The food is innovative, wholesome and uses only the finest, local ingredients. Leon has maintained the highest standards in this established, Kendalian favourite and he is well supported by his lovely family and staff. Not to be missed. Dog-friendly too!
