Hoping you all had a brilliant start to the new year and that the rest of the year continues to be just as good!
Here at The Wilson’s we have a lot of plans for 2015 starting off with two new luxury self catering apartments, furnished to the same high standard as our very popular Wilson’s No.3 and The Mews, both will be available to let starting from Easter. We are very excited about these, expect more information about the apartments as they get closer to completion.
We tried a new beer on Friday 26th, from Barngates Brewery, called Tenacious Ted – and we will be ordering more for the coming Bank Holiday weekend, as it sold out in 4 hours! It is a 3.8% copper coloured bitter, a nice mix of malt and hops leading to a thoroughly thirst quenching pint. Tenacious Ted is named after a very lively Jack Russell from the Langdale Valley.
Barngates Brewery first started brewing their own beer in 1997 in the cellar of the Drunken Duck Inn, Barngates, near Ambleside. They use their own water supply, fresh from the fells with no additives to assist in the brewing process.
We have had a fantastic, busy weekend with the Pub and Deli. All the new stock has arrived and we have been busy pricing, stocking and organising it all so finally we get to open the doors of the Torver Deli!
We have also been looking after a large group of men, staying up at Tranneth, making sure that they were all well fed and watered throughout their weekend. Kirsty and Kieran put out a splendid Buffet for them with food ranging from Beef Curry to local Smoked Cold Meats and Cheeses, Breads and a home made giant Pork Pie.
So now we look forward to what the week ahead holds for us and to welcoming everyone to the Torver Deli, and invite you to come and enjoy the new patio area outside the pub with our very own and unique Wishing Well (Created using the original well dating from around 1838!)
