Vats Bar

Brewery Arts Centre Highgate Kendal LA9 4HE 01539 725 133

We say

Best pub in Kendal is the house bar at the arts centre – named after the big brewing vats that have been sliced up for booth seating. It’s a real-ale place, and shares the same menu with the centre’s adjacent Grain Store restaurant, letting you tuck into the Brewery’s great pizzas and tapas-style dishes in a more casual setting. Come the sun and everyone pours out onto the terrace at one of the town’s great social hubs.
