Opening later on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will allow the restaurant to serve dinner. News of the extended hours follows a revamp of the restaurant, which is sited beneath Booths' flagship store in Kendal and opened in 2005. As part of the revamp, the restaurant has a new menu and operations manager.
"The revamped Artisan has a fresh look and will offer diners the choice of a lunchtime menu plus a new children's and evening menu," said operations manager Joel Kirkpatrick.
"The food served in the evenings will be a little more sophisticated, while still being true to the ethos of Artisan, which is about serving excellent quality food with a strong use of local produce and flavours," Kirkpatrick added. "It promises to be a delicious treat for diners."
Evening main courses on the A La Carte menu include National Trust beef and Lancaster Bomber ale pie served with house chips and market vegetables. Also featured is a 'from the region' lamb neck hotpot with sweet braised red cabbage and brown lentils.
