Kendal is FULL of good eateries - so nobody is going to go home hungry. In fact we always grumble that Kendal has far more (and better) places to eat than Lancaster, despite being smaller.

Susan and I know Kendal quite well and will be around (Susan on the computer, me probably on the members plant stall) if anyone wants advice or directions regarding specific tastes or dietary requirements. 

If headed into Kendal from the show we would strongly advise leaving your car at the show and walking into the town centre as the one-way system is horrible. It isn't a long walk.

There are lots of nice places to grab a coffee, slice of cake or a meal in Kendal, for vegetarians I heartily recommend the Waterside Wholefood café which is a short stroll from the venue along the river.

Including the appropriately named Farrer's tea rooms! Great scones, especially the wholemeal ones with sesame seeds....

Now I'm getting hungry.

Wouldn't bank on it Darren they'd probably clear the decks of anything put in front of them as long as it started with 'f' ended with 'd' and had two 'oo's in the middle.

Curses - the Lake District is just that bit too far away! I have a feeling this Show might be a good one...

;D :D   Yes, I think there was a certain note of hysteria in fermi's comment wasn't there ?

Can't help feeling that the Show will be a great success - and not just because Kendal is well endowed with eateries!!  8)

No overseas trip this year - house extension is finally going to happen!
I hope to one day return and re-contest the Pudsey! ;D
The camaraderie is wonderful,
