The Ilex is a fresh dining experience set in the opulent surroundings of Holker Hall, a modern refurbished extension to the Courtyard, giving guests a sense of occasion.
Open every Sunday from 12pm – 3pm for Sunday Lunch, The Ilex can also be booked for private events and is licenced for wedding ceremonies of up to 70 guests.
Our Head Chef can create a bespoke menu combining the heritage of great British food with a fresh twist paired with a modern wine and drinks menu that suits any taste.
People and food are our passion and the experience we deliver is as a result of the best of both and makes us the venue of choice for local Cumbrian’s and visitors alike.
