I love the Wilton Arms, we have been many times with different owners. Some good experiences, some not so! However, today’s visit was disappointing, to say the least. The pub was cold and lacking any atmosphere. The staff were, let’s say, not the most welcoming!...More

Had a meal here tonight with family but was very disappointed. The food was sub standard and we didn't enjoy it one bit. The haddock risotto looked like a dollop of rice pudding and tasteless! Will not be returning.
