The Crooklands began life as a farm house dating back to the mid 1700s, so The Inn is full of character with wooden beamed ceilings, roaring log fire and cosy crannies – a ‘traditional’ friendly pub.
As with many of the outlying pubs near Kendal it has a story to tell. Though not an Inn until much later it’s believed that the occupiers back then used to brew their own ale and sell it to locals out of their front room. You can still enjoy a pint of Crooklands real ale, however we don’t brew it on site!
We’re open to welcome you for morning coffee, relaxed lunch or evening meal. It’s where we encourage casual dining.
Our menu is British classics, done well! Whether you’re celebrating or refueling, Gareth Taylor, our chef of 12 years and his team’s ambition is to serve proper home cooked food that makes you smile.
With different spaces for you to choose from; a bar stool, comfy sofa or seated table service. There are even several secret nooks for families, friends, dogs and their owners to enjoy their own ‘private’ pub experience.
