You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Barclays Bank

9 Highgate, Kendal LA9 4DF, UK – 0345 734 5345

The bank themselves and staff have always been great. Helpful and motivated. The bank has undergone a complete revamp and opened yesterday, I have to say the tired old Barclays of Kendal is now gone! They have instant cash machines that you can deposit up to 200 notes in and take out up to £2000 in one transaction straight from your debit card! Vast improvement I say. Place looks great too

Great improvement - no long queues. I can just deposit cheques at the machine and get a receipt which copies the cheque and the paying in slip. All good.

Leeds Building Society

83 Stricklandgate, Kendal LA9 4RA, UK – 01539 724460

Local Chambers of Commerce for LA9 5PP. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Kendal Town Hall

9a Lowther St, Kendal LA9 4DL, UK – 01539 793102

Nice building with some great features. Generally only the toilet is open to the general public (unless you have a meeting or coffee morning or exercise class). The wooden wall around the door is due to the deteriorating sand stone from the walls and balcony.

Been inside this Town Hall and the woodwork is of old school and first class craftsmanship Well worth looking round. This is where Alfred Wainwright the famous walker held office has Treasurer. Did talk to someone who used to work in the Town Hall and she had no idea Alfred had a son.

Kendal County Hall

Busher Walk, Kendal LA9 4RQ, UK – 01539 713567

Dental Surgeries

The Bridge Dental Practice

14 Milnthorpe Rd, Kendal LA9 5AS, UK – 01539 721730

Couldn't hope for a nicer dental practice. Really, let's face it no-one likes going to the dentist, but here it's almost a pleasant experience. All the staff are happy and fun, and still attentive and caring. I had a wedding coming up and had 6 weeks left when I decided my teeth seriously needed sorting. They managed to get me in for a total of 8 appointments and with a week to go I was done, happy with a decent smile again. They went well beyond the call for me. Thanks to the dentists and staff... You will get wedding photos soon.

Bupa Dental Care Kendal

59A Stramongate, Kendal LA9 4BH, UK – 01539 737220

I have been to Oasis Dental Care surgery 3 times now and never fail to be impressed with the level of care, even having a wisdom tooth taken out was painless. The time the dentists and Hygienists spend explaining any treatment is good too. I give them 10/10 on all levels.

Hall & Smith Dental Practice

147 Stricklandgate, Kendal LA9 4RF, UK – 01539 729552

Had emergency treatment here. Outstanding.

Station House Surgery

Caring people who take good care of you excellent reception staff too all of them. Very helpful thank you

Captain French Surgery

The Gillinggate Centre, Gillinggate, Kendal LA9 4JE, UK – 01539 720241

I went here for a Vasectomy and saw Dr White. The surgery and waiting area were superb, and the receptionist was helpful. But of course, I was going for a vasectomy, so the important thing is being relaxed. I am pleased to say he did not have a tray covered by a sheet, that was pulled back dramatically to unveil a row of sharp and scary looking instruments. Oh no. I got up on the bed, we chatted about life, he occasionally said "you might feel a scratch", and then ten minutes later, it was over. Easy, friendly, and very professional.

Westmorland General Hospital

Was dreading attending but brilliant endoscopy team made it much less stressful. Bunch of helpful relaxed staff. Let me know what was happening throughout. Cystoscopy not recommended as a past time but if you have to have one I would highly recommend the team!

Had to visit with my son. Great services and staff couldn’t do more for you. It was just way to hot for comfort in the whole building.

Second largest parish church in Cumbria. Well worth a visit. Lots of parking and walks by the river. Close to city centre.

Lovely church close to the river. Beautiful inside. Had the pleasure of meeting the vicar and shown the interior and given a map of complete history of relevant chapels, main altar, organ, and many more. Highly recommend popping in if you are visiting Kendal.

Find Recycling Centres

Kendal Recycling Centre

Canal Head N, Kendal LA9 7DB, UK – 01539 728084

It is what it is, but on my visit the staff we less than helpful. However, more recently they were great. So it may just depend. One point to note, it can be busy and wait times can be quite long at times, rather down to the extremely poor design/layout. They could take a lesson in layout from the Carnforth Recycle Centre! Part of the problem may be down to the size of the site though.

B & J Metals(Skip Hire) Ltd

3 Fell View Trading Park, Kendal LA9 6NZ, UK – 01539 729508

Nothing is ever too much trouble for Joe and all the Team, would recommend.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Kendal

Pedro's Kendal

128 Stricklandgate, Kendal LA9 4QG, UK – 01539 722332

Wasn’t too busy on a Thursday evening in January however was asked to wait at the bar to have drinks until a table was ready. When we declined to order drinks at the bar and would wait for table, an empty table was given to us immediately. Lovely atmosphere and food. Great background music. Tapas style which we ordered about 2 dishes each and shared (3 women). However, when my friend stated she didn’t like the sweet potato fries, the waitress Asked if she’d ever eaten them before to which my friend said yes and these weren’t to her liking. They still charged us £3 for a dish we didn’t eat and again implied that she didn’t know what sweet potato fries taste like and the member of staffs response was that she thought they tasted fine. Usually if a customer doesn’t even eat the dish and sends it back it’s taken off the bill. Very strange customer service all for the sake of £3. We even tipped the service (not realising they hadn’t taken the fries off the bill) which I now regret. As nice as it was a lot of other places I’ve eaten have the same type of food and better customer service. For a small town it’s a nice place but wouldn’t work in London as you’d go somewhere else where they don’t get defensive about £3 fries.

Friendly and fun place, good range of Mexican and Spanish type food. If you want authentic tapas or Mexican food, go somewhere else. If its a bit of fun with lots of food to share then this is the place

Pizza Express

6 Wainwrights Yard, Kendal LA9 4DP, UK – 01539 728598

Went in with friends and our kids and the staff couldn't have done more to make us all feel welcome and comfortable. Sat us on a good table with plenty of buggy and high chair space. Our lovely waitress even brought our baby a tiny ice cream when the other kids had dessert. Fantastic food, great service, will be back soon

Had a garlic bread with mozzarella for starters... Proper good. Main course was the padana pizza and was very tasty! The goats cheese on the pizza was just lovely. Our server, Katie was very friendly and professional. Overall very impressed. Five stars, ten out of ten. Also shiraz was delicious!

The Moon Highgate

129 Highgate, Kendal LA9 4EN, UK – 01539 729254

Unbelievable hospitality, service & food! Called last minute for a reservation when we were up visiting Kendall on holiday. The lovely man on the phone fitted us in and he and his team gave us fantastic service from start to finish. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was lovely. I've eaten in a lot of resteraunts and this really is a memorable venue for all the right reasons. I would 100% recommend!!

Very cosy upstairs... Had a lovely meal here a few months ago. Great food and friendly staff :)

Heron Hill Primary School

Hayfell Ave, Kendal LA9 7JH, UK – 01539 721276

I am a parent of two children in years 3 & 6, both of whom have been at the school since attending the school nursery. As parents we have always been really happy with the school. Although a relatively large school, it has a real family, friendly and community feel. The staff are supportive and always available to discuss any worries we have had. Our daughter found starting school difficult, and the staff went out of their way to help her settle and thrive at school. Both our children are doing the SATS this year, and we have been impressed with how the school have helped and prepared them for the tests, so they are both comfortable and not worried at all. The school grounds are huge, and both our children really benefit from the outside spaces and extra curricular activities on offer. The school has a GOOD Ofsted rating, and we feel delivers just the right balance of nurture and challenge to our children, so they are happy to go, and keen to learn.

Excellent school for children. Good IT facilities in class
