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.

There is nothing not to like about Fantails. Great host, great atmosphere and excellent food. Sunday lunch is particularly recommended.

Delicious Sunday lunch. Good traditional decor and very friendly service. Try the creme brulee - outstanding!

Booked in at the last minute on 19th December so close to Christmas but they managed to squeeze us in. We were wonderfully surprised by the cosy warm atmosphere and the attentive service.

The food was served quickly, despite heavy Christmas parties in full flow, and the raucous jolliness added to the festive experience. Both our meals were excellent, tasty, well prepared and sated expectancy. We wanted to return but the next three evenings were fully booked out... a good sign!!

We would definitely return on our next visit to Cumbria, and invite family and friends to enjoy the experience. Well done! Great!

Had dinner there tonight with 4 freinds. Have been a few times and always really enjoyed - good food, service etc. Has always been one of my favourite restaurants and always recommends. Tonight was a disappointment, the food was good but waited ages for the drinks order to be taken, menus, food to be served and to pay. The service was not the best. The waitress really was on a different planet! Disappointing.
