Superb food, beers and wine. Hardworking staff on the ball. A real cosy pub atmosphere in a great location for any outdoor pursuits . Has charm and character that larger places lack. Nice to see the wine list sensibly priced unlike most establishments. We will return!
On a wet and miserable night 6th December whilst staying nearby we visited the Wilson Arms for a meal ., we were greeted by a friendly and helpful member of staff and I enjoyed a pint of locally brewed beer whilst deciding what to eat.
The menu was extensive with some excellent options to meet all tastes. I opted for the home made pie which really was homemade and very scrummy, served with fresh veg. My partner chose the steak and veg which was enormous and a fine cut of beef.
The real fire and comfy relaxed seating added to the ambiance.
Overall a fabulous meal and much much better than standard pub grub.
Only stopped for a drink and was amazed by how nice it was! Really cute and the staff are so friendly, we were served by a girl called Kelly, she was extremely friendly and made the best hot chocolate ever! The out door heaters outside are lovely. There is a Wii for the kids to play on, free WiFi computers, games and a place to charge up your phone, all for free! I would advise anyone to go! Amazing!
We stayed in the adjacent executive cottage for the weekend, 5 meter from door to door, perfect!! Absolutely surpassed all expectations. Facilities perfect, complimentary bottle of wine and the recent modernisations are excellent, 56″ flat screen TV, multi fuel burner with hot plate, ideal for chestnuts or warming the mulled wine and mince pies.
We also ate at the pub which provides excellent food, great choice of local ales, log fire, really friendly staff and for the techno minded (of which I am not included) free Wifi and mobile charging.
A must stop off point in the Lakes.
Had a lunch there last week, I can honestly say it was magnificent, the pork fillets and the fish cakes were delicious. This together with warm and friendly atmosphere in the bar and superb service really made our day. Will definitely come back.
I live in Scotland and went to the Wilson Arms. I went down for a short holiday in the Lake District. The food was superb, they had a selection of award winning beers (which the bar staff allowed us to try before buying!) and the atmosphere and service was also first class. Will definitely be back when I’m down next!
