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 menu in informal and family friendly surroundings. There are regular events, including our Monday Curry Club and quiz and the ‘Live in the Vats’ free music gigs.
Jenny, our bar manager, specialises in selecting the best ales from around the UK for you to try. We are located on the site of Kendal’s old Whitwell, Mark & Co Brewery and are very proud of the brewing history behind the Brewery Arts Centre. With up to seven hand pumps on the bar we offer a great range of beers. Our selection of cask ales (including regularly changing guest beers) sits alongside continental lagers and draught beers.We also recently increased our range of guest beers, so there are plenty for you to try!
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.
