Welcome to Charlie’s Cafe Bar.

We are a well established business in the South Lakes town of Kendal offering great quality, locally sourced food and drink to our customers.

According to the Kendal Civic Society, the building that is now Charlie’s Cafe Bar was owned during the Stuart rebellion of 1745 by Justice Thomas Shepherd.

It was slept in by Bonnie Prince Charlie during his advance on London and again during his retreat. His pursuer, the Duke of Cumberland, slept in the same bed on the following night.
