Ilex Bar & Brasserie

The Ilex Bar & Brasserie 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 – 4pm for Sunday Lunch, The Ilex can also be booked for private events and is licenced for wedding ceremonies of up to 70 guests.

Our Executive 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 suit 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.

And, of course, our famous afternoon tea can be booked either online or in person on the day of your visit.
