About Idlewild

Day or night out, Idlewild's 'Pub Deluxe' look, classic British menu and bar containing a host of quality cocktail options is on hand. The downstairs restaurant is a sophisticated space with hand crafted chandeliers and a 26 foot long solid pewter bar adorning a room which leads on to a courtyard garden hideaway. Upstairs at Idlewild light shines off the huge chandeliers to bathe the first floor grand apartment-style cocktail lounge in a sunset-like glow. Food at the restaurant is mainly British and revolves around ideas of simplicity, season and most importantly tradition - classic British dishes such as roast beef, Lancashire hot pot and jam roly poly are specialities.
