Basil’s Fine Dining Restaurant

Our flagship restaurant named after founder of The Ranch, Mr Basil Shearer – Basil’s fine dining restaurant is the best way to describe The Ranch family business since it was founded in 1960 and continues to be run with the same passion and commitment that Paul and father Tom Shearer continue to strive for uncompromising standards and service culture.

Today Basil’s is headed up by Head Chef Daniel Gee and highly qualified chefs that learnt their trade though learning from other chefs at The Ranch over the years and their commitment to offering an extra ordinary dining experience in Basil’s.

The Basil’s team is well known for hosting special food and wine pairing’s that is accompanied by the wine maker. There is no other restaurant in the north that is more eagerly anticipated than a dining evening in Basil’s

Old Joe's

Old Joe’s bar lounge is named after an African employee of ours who worked for us for 55 years. The bar has been named in his memory. Joe started as a waiter in 1960 and grew from there to barman, then to duty manager, then to assistant manager and then to a senior manager and finally a director of the company. Joe retired in 2015.

The bar was built in an old English pub style, furnished in quality wood work and fine leather.
