The Restaurant and Menus

Brendan McGee, head chef & patron, has created an extensive menu featuring modern British cuisine using fresh local produce. Brendan brings over 30 years experience to the Ilchester Arms kitchen. His modern style cuisine still maintains some of the traditional values of British cooking, whilst including a twist of style and a pinch of contemporary ideas served up with a huge dollop of inspiration and enthusiasm.

We proudly make to order and serve a selection of  hearty meals, sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and of course our daily specials.  We also offer a junior bites menu for those with a smaller appetite.

In the evening we serve a full bistro menu complemented by our wine list.

The menus change every few months to reflect the best of the seasonal produce.
