If you’re stopping at The Wilson’s or just passing through don’t leave without visiting The Torver Deli for some of our takeaway goodies , Opened early last year the deli has become popular with locals and guests alike.

Made fresh every day in the deli are cakes, breads, pies and much more to sample such as our very own branded products like our selection of jams and sweets

You may just want a daily paper and pint of milk, need inspiration for tea or forgotten those household emergencies?

The deli is open from 7.30am everyday and closes as the pub does.

I promise you won’t be disappointed with Eddie’s fruit cake or the biggest sausage roll around, just make sure to be quick as they sell fast! Also try our home-made gluten free chocolate brownies which proved to be a summer best seller.

We can even take pre-orders for bread and papers and make up pack lunches for a trip up the fells.

So don’t forget to pop in and have a look around!

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!

The Wilsons Hog Roast

Last weekend we hosted our first Hog Roast!  It is our latest venture to cater for events and large groups.    It went down very well and we were scraping the last remnants of pork off the bones (after serving 130 portions).  The pork was absolutely delicious!  The roast was switched on at 5am, and it cooked slowly all day, which resulted in a perfect round of crackling, melt in your mouth slices of pork, served in a large white roll, topped with a spoon of stuffing and a big dollop of apple sauce.   Perfect with a pint of local Ale.

Hog roasts have been cooked for centuries and are performed around the world as celebratory events and traditional occasions.

A Spit/Rotisserie is a method of cooking slowly, over hot coals or a flame over a long period of time.  The meat is skewered on a long solid rod and is supported at each end.  This is then turned slowly, to ensure an even cooking.  In the medieval times, this was done manually, usually a boy, known as a “spit boy” or “spit jack”.  Methods of turning the animal on the spit have improved over the years.  Dog treadmills, steam power and mechanical clockwork are some of the methods that have been used.  Ours is very modern and uses Gas!
