Spring Evening Barbecue at The Ilex

Saturday 4th May

A sizzling night of fun at The Ilex from 5 pm. Join us for a barbecue feast!  
Enjoy the evening in the relaxing setting of The Courtyard at Holker.
On the menu is Holker estate venison burgers, Cartmel Valley game, smoked Cumberland sausages, Cumbrian marinated chicken thighs or Thai marinated fish parcels – all served accompanied by fresh, homemade bread and a selection of Holker kitchen garden salads.
The difficult part will be deciding what to put on your plate!
