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 4DA, 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.

Cumberland Building Society

29-33 Finkle Street, Kendal LA9 4AB, UK – 0800 554 1586

This 5 stars was for the lovely lady did my money transfer today and not fit the other one who made me feel not welcome by berating about being able to transfer money via my phone if I had the app. If I wanted app I would get it. Do you not want face to face customers after all your adds stare we are all about customers. Oh and one other small point why is yours the only bank in kendal not dog friendly. I have been a customer for 30 years ish and would just like to bank as I want to bank.

Fantastic service, really helpful staff, offered advice on how to save money in the future on tyres

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

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.

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.

Kendal County Hall

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

Dental Surgeries

Hall & Smith Dental Practice

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

Had emergency treatment here. Outstanding.

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.

A very efficient NHS visit

Sandes Avenue Dental Practice

5 Sandes Ave, Kendal LA9 4LL, UK – 01539 739911

Because of funding problems in the NHS, I was unable to get the non-cosmetic dental treatment I needed. I contacted a few dentists able to undertake implant surgery, but only Arfan Iqbul recognised the urgency as I had a badly infected molar that had split down to the root. Arfan removed the tooth, gave time for the infection to clear and healing to take place. Next with his experience and expertise, he placed the implant and abutment somewhat forward of the extraction site where the jaw bone was thicker thus removing the need for a graft. This made the process months shorter. The crown is larger than the extracted molar and covers the gap where I has another tooth removed when I was in my early teens. (There is, of course, some place left to either side of the crown to enable cleaning.) This means I have no gaps and can eat comfortably again. I'm immensly impressed with not only Arfan's work, but with his relaxed, warm and confidence- inspiring manner. He thinks 'outside the box' to achieve the best possible result. He discussed the treatment plan with me and I never felt pressurised in any way, nor were there any hidden extras. I would highly recommend Arfan to anyone. He is a brilliant dental surgeon, who is also compassionate and caring towards his patients. The atmosphere at Sandes Avenue is welcoming and friendly. All the support staff, receptionists and dental nurses are amazing. I want to thank them all for their excellent service. I felt I was with family and at home! Bless you all.

My son had his teeth front knocked out when he was 9. They had started to go black and unsightly. He was fitted in quickly to have the bleaching. We were not expecting fantastic results as we were told they can vary but the results were beyond belief! With in the 1st couple of days my sons teeth were white! After the whole treatment we just can't believe how amazingly white his teeth look. We are thrilled.

Station House Surgery

Station House Surgery, Station Rd, Kendal LA9 6SA, UK – 01539 722660

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.

Excellent doctors & chemist

Westmorland General Hospital

I've been going to this hospital now for some time whilst having dialysis. I was scared about the going the first time but once I met the staff, all of whom are very dedicated and made the whole process less stressful. Wonderful staff each and everyone of them including the support staff. I thank you. Mac#

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!

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.

Kendal Recycling Centre

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

Brilliant,helpful staff, do their best to keep traffic moving. I have no complaints at all, thank you.

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

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Kendal

Jintana Thai Restaurant Kendal

101 Highgate, Kendal LA9 4EN, UK – 01539 723123

Gorgeous and tasty. We have eaten at the Ambleside restaurant which first introduced us to Thai. This one was just as good. Next time we'll try the Bo'ness one.

Upmarket Thai: beautifully presented and flavoursome food in a calm atmosphere with service that's attentive without being intrusive. Book on a Saturday night but otherwise not so busy.

Pedro's Casa

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

Visited Kendal yesterday and found Pedro''s where we had lunch. The food was excellent, cooked fresh, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back to sample more from the menu and the atmosphere. You enter a different world, even at midday.

A fun place that the kids love. The food and the service are great even when it's busy. Our current go to place for family celebrations.

The Moon Highgate

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

Lovely restaurant in Kendall with a modern English menu. The food is really well presented and tastes even better then it looks. The staff and owners are lovely, attentive but not overly. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

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!!

Nursery and Preschools

Brewery Pre-School

122A Highgate, Kendal LA9 4HE, UK – 01539 722833 x215

The Brewery Preschool is a small nursery with 2-3 educators and 6-10 kids attending daily. It was perfect for us as I felt my little one was not ready for a large pre-school and here he got a smooth transition and lots of 1:1 attention. We managed to settle without ANY tears! I love the variety of skills that children learn - the very first thing my little one (aged 2) brought back was a strawberry tart, one of the many they made that day. Besides cooking there is a lot of writing, letter recognition, counting, social skills and fun activities outside - bikes, slides, scooters, sand and water play Assessments every half a year are really helpful - I would not have known that we had to work on managing emotions, now it is a conscious effort for me as a mum. I also love the fact there is no telly at all but there is a lot of books reading going on!

The Brewery preschool is a very special place. Every child is cared for and respected as an individual. The teachers go out of their way to make sure not only the children are happy but so are the parents. The setting is small so the children get all the attention and education that they would receive from a childminder, but they also interact with more children of their own age. They feel safe, comfortable and happy there. I have seen both my two transform from babies into confident children and I can't thank the Brewery enough for this. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Lizz and Bronte for all your hard work it is appreciated!

Primary and Secondary Schools

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
