A super experience which added value to our lil holiday in Grasmere. Only a short journey to this friendly and uniquely decorated pub down the road. We would highly recommend visiting this area of coniston to experience the selection of beverages and fine dining on offer. The fillet steak was perfectly cooked and chef’s choice of meat pie just beautiful and very filling. Service second to none. They cater for large parties also. Get yourselves there!!
After a soggy wet day on the fells we came here for an evening bar meal. Immediately we were impressed with the welcoming & cozy ambiance & settled down near the blazing log fire.
We had been a bit apprehensive about bringing the dog out in the evening, but she was made as welcome as any other 2 footed customer.
We enjoyed some great local beers & a lovely meal made from local produce.
We all chose the burgers which were absolutely amazing-excellent quality, well presented & colossal in size.
Seeing other food coming out of the kitchen, on another of our visits to the lakes we will come back here again & try some of the other lovely looking food.
We really enjoyed the whole event, food, service and bar all really excellent! Had a T Bone, which was a special, excellent!!!
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!
Live 10 miles away, called in the other night for a meal. Very cosy with open fire. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband had haddock and chips and I had the scampi, the food was excellent including the chips which were homemade. Portions very generous (too much for us). Good choice of beers behind the bar. Very impressed and will definitely return and would highly recommend.
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.
The Leaks, Shropshire
Just returned home after a fabulous but to short 2 days here, our first visit to this great hotel, but I hope it wont be the last. In fact it won’t because we are already planning a return visit in early 2013, our room No 6 was beautifully refurbished lately and the en-suite although small, has been superbly fitted out. The food was faultless unless you think big portions are a problem the breakfast menu took me back to another era, you are simply spoilt for chose.The dinner menus may not offer the wide selection you get from some larger establishments, but I could not find fault with my selections on the evenings we ate there, the service and quality of everything was of the highest standard. All the staff from Fran, Steve, Kathy and Andrew all make you so welcome and can not do enough for you. Add to this the Mid week deal my wife got for my birthday and it adds up to one most memorable visit, cant wait for the next one.
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!!
