Serving home-made food using fresh, local produce is a priority for us – pretty much everything we offer is made daily on site, from our bread rolls, jams, pickles and butters through to seasoning our nuts and smoking our meats. Our butchers, fish, vegetable and cheese suppliers are all local companies, hand-picked for their quality, and with seasonal menus we use the freshest ingredients all year round.
We’re proud to say that our kitchen staff hold five rosette awards between them, so you have a passionate and award winning team taking care of your meal. We have such an array of fantastic produce available around Dorset and the Jurassic coast, it’s a delight to craft the menus around what’s local, fresh and particularly delicious that week… along with keeping hold of a few of our resident British favourites.
Menus are designed to work with every budget - from lighter, home-made bar snacks, staple rustic meals through to the a la carte seafood and steak dishes. We also offer breakfasts, lunches and delicious afternoon teas.
Example of what’s on offer…
The characterful circular bar at The Ilchester Arms is the ultimate setting in which to enjoy one of our 40+ hand-picked wines, real ale or draft cider, liqueur or a healthy seasonal, fresh fruit cocktail. We pride ourselves on offering an extensive drinks menu, with a wide variety of local beer, cider and wine options to compliment the delicious food available.
The recently renovated front bar, fireside bar and rear bar areas provide a selection of rustic table seating and scattered sofas to relax and comfortably watch the world go by.
We also have plenty of delightful non-alcoholic beverages, serving superior barista style coffee, ‘The Gilded Teapot’ teas and freshly blended smoothies and juices, along with a selection of quality bar nibbles and home made snacks.
