We stopped in for the first time last night and was thrilled we did. The staff are lovely, very knowledgeable and honest and the pub/hotel itself is very upmarket and well decorated. We will definitely stop by again based off our experience. The food menu also looked good but we did not eat there to give a review of quality.

We stopped in here for lunch after being given short shrift at "the Dolphin" Pub... a local pub for local people. We are so happy we did! They had a double room available for the night and- based on the charm and warmth of the place and its staff - we took it. Clean, airy, spacious and beautifully decorated room.... More

Second stay here, this time for a Wedding event in the town. The location, rooms, food, bar and all the staff were excellent. You can bring a dog by prior arrangement. There is an enclosed garden, safe for kiddies and plenty of off-street parking

We accidentally came across The Ilchester Arms Hotel as we were looking for somewhere to have a sit down whilst on the way home from Somerset. The building is a beautiful old building. The interior had somewhat quirky decor but that was rather nice after all the dull, branded and matching decor of chain restaurants. We had a drink and... More

Very comfortable. All you'd expect from a B&B. Brendan and Lucy will give you a warm welcome and make you feel at home. Room was prepared to a good standard, plenty of storage. Bathroom well equipped. Ample parking at the rear. Very good breakfast too! No complaints, all good.

We were staying at a BnB close by and the owners recommended the Ilchester Arms for dinner. We were not disappointed - we both ordered the roast pork which came with all the trimmings, and was a great choice. The service was friendly an efficient and we had a great experience here.
