Kendal (and its Many Fine Pubs)

There are small, intimate, secluded pubs, known only to locals; and there are big, bustling, family-oriented pubs offering all-day food and children's play areas. There are lively pubs showing televised sports, and quiet spots without even a jukebox, where the principal sounds are the clink of glasses and the buzz of conversation.

There are town centre pubs, cheek-by-jowl with shops and offices, and little village pubs, some with limited opening hours. There are pubs located with ultimate convenience beside bus and railway routes; and still others that require the use of feet, bicycle, or motor car to get to them.
