Well, it’s that time of year again – already!! We are well underway with Christmas preparations and festivities. We have our fabulous, extra large Tree up, beautiful handmade decorations in the bar and Deli (all available for sale), a mouth watering Christmas Party Menu and the Torver Deli has a range of treats and gifts for everyone! From Homemade Mince Pies and Mulled Cider to Hampers, Gift Vouchers, Cakes and Cookies! Make sure you drop into see us.
We would like to take this opportunity to Thank you all for your custom and loyalty throughout the year, and we hope to see you over the coming weeks and welcome you back in 2014!
Have a Merry Christmas and all the very best wishes for the New Year.
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!)
Spent two nights on a mid week special deal, excellent value. We paid £129 for the two nights which included a three course meal on the first night, continental breakfast both mornings and a free bottle of wine if we ate there the second night. No question, we did eat there the second night as the food was so good. If there is a wait for the food, its because it is freshly cooked and we couldn’t fault the first class friendly service we received.
The room was lovely, only thing we would say is that the bathroom required attention, but renovation is planned.
The bar was comfortable, cosy and welcoming and we spent both nights having pre-dinner drinks infront of the lovely log fire.
As a result of our experience, we are planning a return visit soon.

Spent 2 nights at The Wilsons for my husbands birthday. Fantastic time, nicely refurbished room, very good food, yummy breakfasts and the staff are absolutely wonderful, so helpful and friendly, so big thank you to Kathy, Fran and Andrew. They are also very dog-friendly here too, so ideal for couples like us travelling with their dog. A great two days and we will be back in the New Year!!
Brilliant food – the burgers especially were absolutely amazing. Portions were so big we didn’t eat the next day! The dog was made to feel welcome too. Price was fantastic. Would love to come back again!
It was quite by chance we fell on The Wilsons as Choice Hotels had sent us info for somewhere in the area but we couldn’t get in. In choosing The Wilsons we found the web site informative and straight forward no hidden agendas or costs. It was our first itme away with our dogs and thought we would be in for a rough ride, but at The Wilsons we were all welcome and made to feel right at home.
I even sampled one of the bitters my husband took a shine to and I have to say for the first time since the 80’s I was drinking pints. The decor of room 4 was beautiful the dogs settled in right away. The food was just what we would expect for being ‘up north. Tasty wholesome and plenty of it. (I would suggest that you don’t make it any more fancy.) The breakfast was to die for.
The facilities available were lovely you can see that a lot of thought has gone into planning and positioning.
Andrew in the bar was funny and friendly and by the way Andrew if you look on ‘tinternet’ and put the name [–] watch Buddy lee’s video and you will see what we were on about. Hope this helps you.
All the staff were helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble.
Yes its a popular place but I think that says a lots if the locals prefer to spend their time and hard earned money there.
We hope to be back this time next year.
Oh and next time sort the weather out for the whole stay…..lol.
Thank you all at the Wilsons.
We had a wonderful 2 night stay at The Wilson’s Arms. The food was simply divine from breakfast through to dinner. The newly refurbished bedrooms were stunning, with an excellent shower & lots of hot water (a must after a long walk in the beautiful surroundings) The bed was heavenly & the Egyptian cotton sheets made for a perfect night’s sleep. The bar, with it’s roaring, open, log fire was so welcoming, with a great selection of beers & wines and plenty of games for wet weather, a selection of daily newspapers, and dog friendly. All the staff we met were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We will certainly be returning and are more than happy & confident to recommend a stay at The Wilson’s Arms. Pop in for a meal or snack, if passing…you will not be disappointed.
An excellent place, newly and well decorated, very appealing indeed. Not only are dogs welcomed, assumed they behave, but if you ask, I think they may even look after your horse! Well, maybe, they are horse lovers and riders.
The first thing of particular import to me is that Wilson’s is also very welcoming, and the staff is most helpful were my mother is concerned. She is 83 and severely handicapped. So I take her often there, and she enjoys it too.
Another item is the coffee, which is excellent. My only gripe here is that it isn’t served in syringes – I’m a caffeine addict…
The staff are wonderful and keen to help, may I mention in particular Cathy as well as the proprietor Francis.
Finally the food, always good quality, decent portions and very well presented. They really make an effort, so that the eyes can eat as well.
In summary, I have become a regular, even though it’s a 20-30 minute trip from where I live. But given the scenery it’s also a very pleasant and relaxing journey, driving along Coniston Lake.
Just called in on the off chance for a drink yesterday and ended up staying for a meal. Excellent food, cheery service and ambience.Very reasonable prices.Sat in front of a log fire and dozed off to some good old fashioned rock and roll.
Going home now but will be back near Coniston again next year. Will not hesitate to go back. What a jewel.
