Pizza Nights At The Wilsons

Easter weekend has kickstarted the arrival of pizza nights here at The Wilsons, all cooked by our excellent Italian pizza chef, Martina. Pizza will be available to eat in or takeaway!

New Ales At The Wilsons

AlcoholThis month we’ll be anticipating the arrival of a selection of new ales and guest beers from local brewers, including: Jubilee Stout from Kirkby Lonsdale, Langdale Ale, Black Sail, a new copper ale from Hesket Newmarket, and fine ales from Barngates. Loweswater Gold & Coniston XB are also served behind the bar – all essential for relieving some of the heat from those humid, thirst-quenching summer days ahead!

Summer At The Wilsons

Annie’s Retirement
For months our extra, extra large resident, Annie, had us all convinced she was pregnant and ready to once again contribute to our ever-expanding family. To everyone’s disbelief it turns out she wasn’t in fact pregnant at all! She was however found to be reaping all the maternity benefits whilst chowing down on a few too many pig’nics! Unfortunately we’re now saying goodbye to Annie as she embarks on her final journey for some well-deserved R&R and all the swine and cheese she can consume in that bottomless pit of a stomach!

PigsWendy & Piglets
On a much lighter note, Annie’s heavyhearted departure is met with some exciting news as we welcome her sister Wendy, along with 10 of her healthy piglets to grace our presence and provide some great entertainment for the summer. Be sure to stop by and see how they’ve all settled in!



Coniston Lake Race
With summer once again around the corner, you’ll be given the opportunity to challenge Matthew in a 14 mile bicycle race around the picturesque lake of Coniston. For a £10 entry fee, this feat of endurance enables you to compete for a place on our wall of fame, and every penny will be donated to aid local causes! Upon completing the scenic route, which takes approximately an hour and 15 minutes, you’ll be rewarded with a refreshing pint of cold beer to help soothe the impending fatigue and signify the end of the race. Once your glass is empty, your time will be recorded behind the bar and the winner will be announced once all participants have safely returned!
