We have, without doubt , had an industrious couple of weeks at the Wilsons. To begin with, some of our Herdwick Lambs have been sent to Aireys Abattoir and Farm Shop to be prepared. The meat has been hanging for two weeks and is now in the pub and on the Menu! (Hanging the meat for a period of time helps to improve and enhance its flavour). Our Chefs are preparing the Lamb in various ways to compliment all the different cuts. We are very proud to be serving our own products and having them enjoyed so much.
The work on the Deli is also coming along smoothly and we are very excited to get it finished and open. The shelves have been built, the pizza oven is fitted, the doors are in place, the floor has been laid, the Butchers block has arrived, the wood burner is on the way and we are finalizing the last minute touches, signs and lists. The team involved in the building work has done a fantastic job and we are looking forward to seeing the end result.
We called here for a coffee on our way cycling around Lake Coniston and were really impressed with the pub, the welcome and the refreshments, so we decided to stay that night. Lovely room, very welcoming and helpful staff, food excellent. The ‘downside’? We could only stay one night! Highly recommend this pub, we hope to be back soon.
