News and Reviews of The Wilsons

We are looking forward to a busy weekend ahead of us with the Coniston 14 (a local run organised by a small committee from the Village).  The Coniston 14 Road Race was established in 1982 and is organised each year by a small, enthusiastic committee supported by approx 100 local volunteers on the day.  Over £20,000 is raised each year and donated to several charities in the area.  Lets hope the snow keeps away for the Runners.  We wish them all the best and Good Luck!

We have also had some fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor lately, so we thought  we would put them here to share with all our readers.  Well done to the Team who work so hard and make all our guests and visitors so welcome with good food.

“Bargain Break !!”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 13 March 2013
Stayed at the Wilsons Arms for a two night mid-week break, 11/12 March 2013. All staff were very friendly from our arrival right through to our departure, and nothing was too much trouble (even our dog was made to feel welcome). Recently refurbished room was very clean and modern. The 3 course meal that came with the deal on the first night was extremely good, with really generous portions (so generous, that neither of us managed a pudding, so settled for coffee instead!). Although currently going through a refurbishment, there was no disruption to our visit whatsoever. We are intrigued to see the end result of the red phone box ‘fish tank’, and the glass covered ‘well’ that the builders were working on while we were there (hopefully Fran can get the pictures onto the website when they are finished, so that we can see the end result?).

Please pass on our thanks to the team for making our stay so enjoyable



Torver Deli and News

We have had another couple of busy weeks at The Wilsons. The beautiful sunshine and warm weather have definitely been welcome and I am sure there have been a lot of visitors and walkers appreciating it too.  The Bar and Restaurant have been busy as well, as the new season starts on a high note.

The Torver Deli is ever so close to been complete, it is looking good and we are all counting down the days until we are ready to open the doors!  We have opened up the newly decorated and refurbished Dining room, which leads in to the Deli.  We like the open feel of it all combining together, to give shoppers/diners a relaxed feel and the chance to peruse the shop/bar at their leisure.

“Great Service and Excellent Food”

It was our first ever Family break to the Lake District, was made even more pleasurable by fantastic service we received,especially from Kathy. Excellent choice of food available, value for money. Just what you needed after a trek up the Lakeland fells. Would be recommend this to our friends and will defiantly be returning !!!
