Welcome to The Wilson Arms

Dear Customers

At this time we are unable to process table reservations for our indoor restaurant as this remains closed at this time.

Our outdoor Marquee is open daily serving food from 11am – 8.30pm.

We are now in a position to process table reservations in our marquee for groups of 8 or more. To place a table reservation we require a £5.00 per person non-refundable deposit payable upon booking along with a pre-order for our kitchen team.

To update you, we are aiming to re-open the pub indoors from October (Date TBC)

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for your continued support, patience and understanding.
