Food

The cooking at wilks restaurant is light and modern with an emphasis on clean flavours and seasonal ingredients. We focus on produce of extraordinary freshness and quality with vegetables, fruits, herbs, cereals and aromatic spices playing key roles.

Inspired by our experiences and travels, our cooking style unites creative interpretations of classical flavour combinations with traditional and modern cooking techniques.

In keeping with many people’s desire for a healthier lifestyle, butter and cream are used sparingly ensuring that dishes are light and full of natural flavour.

Menus feature products that are traceable and homemade and wherever possible we use wild foods from the UK, in particular the West Country.
