Description: located on the village green we are in idyllic location for beautiful family photos whatever occasion. In addition we are close to the River Eden for those wanting photos in a more rural setting with stunning scenery backdrops and one of the best salmon fishing Rivers in the country. For those who would like to get married within the area, we are in short stroll to Wetheral church. A delightful small country church, it is the perfect place to tie the knot with a loved one. Guests staying within the area will find a number of appealing areas of interest including the Roman Wall, Carlisle Cathedral and Carlisle Castle. Wetheral also has plenty of historic areas of interest including Wetheral priory gatehouse, Corby castle and the Wetheral railway viaduct.

Fabulous evening, my husband and I arrived with our 7yr old son, we opened the door and received a warm friendly welcome from the staff . From then on the quality of the service and food was fantastic. A unique & extensive gin menu, a good choice menu including the children’s menu.my son was allowed to try the soup to see if he liked it or not. .. not many places take that amount of care/attention on such things.My husband had the haggis scotch egg to start ... he was absolutely blown away with taste it was “perfect”. Again something different from the norm.
Our steak mains that followed again didn’t disappoint. - cooked to perfection.
To end the night the owner provided all diners with a complimentary drink of the their choice.
The whole dining experience was wonderful we shall be back. Best restaurant around & Strongly recommended.

Cosy place to go any day of the week. I was there on wednesday and it was crowded but quiet. The staff was quick and fantastic. The food was just delicious, I ordered their speciality of the day, lamb and I have never tasted such a tender meat as in this restaurant. I could not ask for a dessert because I was full but mu colleague order cheesecake and I tried it, amazing! On the top of that, the music was beautiful and sticked to the moment.
