The Factory Tap is Kendal’s premier real ale pub and the place you’ll find the most rewarding new hand-crafted beers around. It’s the place you’ll find friends, old and new. It’s the place to relax and be refreshed. No slots, no music, no gimmicks – just genuine hospitality, dog friendly and very, very real beer. Oh, and a selection of quality wines, care of the legendary Frank Stainton. Locally famous landlord, Les Brown, looks forward to welcoming you. See you soon.

We are working behind the scenes to make sure that when we are allowed to open we can do it safely. Updates coming soon.



Our four legged friends are very welcome at the Tap and as long as they’re well behaved they might even get a treat.




We’re back in it! After a year of been left in the doldrums we are back in the good beer guide.
