Vats Bar

The extraordinary Vats Bar is the place to go when you’re in Kendal.

We serve a range of superb cask ales from around the British Isles and a wide selection of bottled, local and guest beers along with a wide range of wines, spirits and soft drinks. This is a bustling, off-beat, friendly bar and should be part of any night out in the ‘Auld Grey Town’.

The Vats Bar offers the Brewery’s superb pizzas and full tapas menu every day in informal and family friendly surroundings. There are regular events including our Monday night quiz and 'Live in the Vats' gigs.

The Brewery supports ‘Challenge 25’, if you are lucky enough to look under the age of 25 bar staff will ask for proof of age ID before serving you alcohol.
