About Us

We are a family run 1940s themed Tea Rooms and online business, nestled in the beautiful Lake District in Cumbria.

We were founded in 2019, and in the short time we have been open we have expanded our business both in terms of  the Tea Rooms and now our online range, since the launch of our website in 2020.

The name ‘Mr Wilsons’ has a lovely historical and local link to our Tea Rooms Location, which, prior to us was a Public House for many years. The landlord of the Public House during WW2, Ernie Wilson, was also part of the Home Guard for Workington, which we were honoured to commemorate in this way.

Our very ‘unique’ 1940s themed Tea Rooms based in the quaint little town of Workington is an amazing place to experience nostalgia, homecooked foods, drinks and a friendly welcome.

Once you step inside, you will be met by one of our friendly ‘Land Girls’ where you can dine in a 1940’s themed Living Room or Kitchen or even your very own private ‘Anderson / Air Raid Shelter’.

Our Afternoon Teas are an integral part of what we serve, with every item baked in house by our talented team of bakers. We name and theme every Afternoon Tea and add so much detail into making them truly special.

We as a business, love that we can support other local, small businesses, and where possible we source our ingredients etc from small to medium size businesses within 10 miles radius of us.

Our plans to expand not only our food range but also our merchandise range is already in motion, and I am sure you will love, just as much as we do the additions we have planned to add to our online range very soon.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your interest in Mr Wilsons and we hope you love whatever you purchase from us, as much as we loved creating it.

The Team at Mr Wilsons
