Welcome to the New Union Kendal

We are open we wish to thank you all for your support over the last few weeks and see you soon dont forget you can email of message us via Facebook to book a table and our online shop is still open

Serving three Craft Keg and four Real Ales The New Union Kendal is a no pretence pub with great beer, good craic and a friendly atmosphere – everything a pub should be, banter and laughter a plenty!

We’re a popular community gathering spot hosting a weekly quiz, fortnightly music nights along with other events such as carol singing, live music and whisky tastings.

We work closely with other local Kendal businesses including the Thai Kitchen, Heathen Vegan, Yard 46 and Pennington Tea and Coffee.

Our promotion of local real ales and craft beers is paramount, normally from local and other northern breweries, but also a range of select Belgian, German and other continental beers.


CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019

In addition to winning the the Westmorland CAMRA Pub of the Year award in 2019, we’re delighted to have also won the West Pennines Cider Pub of the Year, which puts us in the top 16 nationally, to be judged soon!

This is a great achievement for all of us at the pub and we’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the last year. We hosted our inaugural cider and gin festival last year which put us in the running for the Cider Pub of the Year award as well as the prestigious Pub of the Year award!
