Slap bang in the centre of the bustling market town of Kendal, tucked away down a secret alley hides Yard 46.  A welcoming open fire downstairs, a light and bright dining space upstairs and an outdoor courtyard, complete with a wood-fired oven, there is something for all.  Serving brunch made with our fresh, baked in-house bread, award winning coffee and homemade cake, alongside a unique lunch menu, Yard 46 style is friendly, fun and relaxed.  Also opening occasional evenings during the weekends or hire us for private functions, pop in and see what we can do for you. We look forward to welcoming you, James, Sabina and Team x


**You can now catch us every Tuesday night at The Factory Tap, Kendal, for pizza, 5-9pm**
