Castle Dairy

Alex Saint

The medieval Castle Dairy in Kendal was never a dairy but a Dowry (the house where a Dower or widow would have lived), but it was a farm house and it was also built over the top of the old roman road which you can see in the worn stone floor. If the building is lovely,  so too is the food, staffed and run by Kendal College apprentices under the watchful eye of chef Chris O’Callaghan. We urge you to try it – but be warned – it’s best to book ahead.
