The building and the business is owned by a Limited Company and the property is being offered for sale on behalf of the Directors.

This, together with social media, a reputation for excellent food, a wide range of cocktails, wine, cask and craft ales together with a stylish and welcoming interior, have contributed to making Masons Yard 24 one of the most successful businesses of its type in Kendal in a very short time.
