Cumbrian restaurant opens after major refurb

A restaurant housed in the oldest building in the Cumbrian town of Kendal has been reopened following a £200,000 refurbishment.

The Grade I site has been boarded up for the past five years, but was recently taken over by Kendal College with assistance from the English Heritage and two local councils.

The new-look Castle Dairy restaurant has had a complete overhaul, with a new commercial kitchen installed.

The Savoy Educational Trust, Lakeland Vintners and Kendal College provided a further £65,000 to fund equipment plus fixtures and fittings for the new restaurant and kitchen, according to The Westmorland Gazette.
