Delicious Food in a Historic Setting


The Fantails Restaurant has a long and interesting history with its building originating around 1600 and we still have many of the features including wooden beams and panelling. From being a blacksmiths shop to a village filling station and now a sought after restaurant and event venue the Fantails is steeped in history with an atmosphere to match.

Wetheral Village

Located on the village green we are in an idyllic location for beautiful family photos whatever the 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.


Our team are here to make your visit to The Fantails restaurant a memorable occasion with our chefs having over forty years experience they can create a succulent meal that will get your taste buds going.

Well done Kenny & your fantastic staff, we've enjoyed your evening menu, Sunday roast and Friday night tapas. Fantails is a great asset for Wetheral!
