Popular large town pub with exposed brick work and alcoves, close to the station and cattle market.

The Duke of Cumberland is the first and last pub on the North Eastern entranceexit to and from Kendal. It sits at the junction of Shap Road and Appleby Road. This area used to be called Far Cross Bank. Shap Road was Far Cross Bank West, and Appleby Road was Far Cross Bank East. At the junction of these roads, a medieval cross once stood. When the cross itself was removed, its large granite base was left in situ, and was used as a meeting place. It's thought that such were the size of the crowds that gathered here, that the local authorities had the cross base buried, and it remains lost to this day.
