Warm reception from entering with chief tutor/ Sommelier Graham Hedley supervising [nervous] 1st and 2nd year students throughout our 3 course luncheon. Contemporary decor where you can observe students preparing/cooking your chosen dishes on the BIG TV screen from your table. Friend chose Egg Florentine on a home cooked muffin whilst I opted for the carpaccio served with beetroot and salad, accompanioed by a varied selection of freshly baked warm bread rolls. Main course I could'nt resist the Cumbrian Fell bred lamb which was so succulent, it literally melted in the mouth, served with seasonal vegs. and potato rosti + a ? asparagus coulis.. Friend went for local chicken breast, which was beautifiully presented. We completed meal with a chocolate marquise [ mousse] + tonka bean ice cream + raspberry coulis and afterwards cafetierre of cafe + 2 pots of tea for friend. A little light entertainment in the form of a cookery flambee demonstration by the students serving everyone a portion of flambee'd pear in a toffee sauce under the auspices of the friendly tutor and highly entertaining Graham completed our dining experience perectly!
You need to book ahead to dine here. Reservations only. Although they were not full to capacity I am sure word will soon spread of Kendal College's 'delightful dining experience'! We will be back to sample more!! Well done everyone.

Kendal College restaurant is a hidden gem. Starters were excellent, I chose the smoked haddock fish cakes with chive & garlic mayo, my other half the pork shoulder and black pudding terrine with caramelised apple chutney. For mains I had breast of Langwathby chicken filled with haggis and my husband had pan fried fillet of whiting with herb crust which we enjoyed. Desserts to die for, Spiced Parkin with nougat one wafer, vanilla ice cream and coffee anglicise, trio of mint cheesecake,macaroon and sorbet.
The service by the young staff was efficient and overseen by attentive restaurant manager. The waiters/waitresses took time to explain various sauces and accompaniments to all courses.
A good selection of wines and soft drinks was available served by knowledgable staff.
The lunchtime service was busy and had a good atmosphere. It just confirms why I keep returning to the restaurant.

Attended the 10 course Visionary Chef 2011 finals in October - absolutely fantastic - service from students was better than we've expereinced in a lot of 'professional' restaurants. So many wonderful courses with wonderful wine - a real experience!
