We visited yesterday for Xmas lunch in a large party, from the moment we arrived the staff were accommodating and friendly. This is the second Xmas meal I have been to in such a large party recently and this was by far the best much better than the yeovil court hotel, all the food arrived together, was all very tasty...

Are you a frequent traveller on the A303 or maybe a once or twice a year holiday visitor on your way to the end of Cornwall either way sometimes a stop is called for maybe due to traffic holdups or a comfort stop as it were. Turn off the main road and head for Ilchester town to the Ilchester Arms... More

My second visit here and it`s still good... better in actual fact as my room was larger. I really like the atmosphere here and the staff are so friendly and helpfull. As before the room and facilities were spotless and breakfast was good, all at a very reasonable price, so it`s a thumbs up from me!!

We stayed here recently with elderly parents and it was wonderful. Comfortable ensuite rooms with character and a lovely pub restaurant downstairs with a superb conservatory. The hosts were welcoming and very hospitable, they have only been here a short while and nothing was too much trouble. Great for families with a film day on Saturdays to keep children occupied,...

We stopped here on our way down to Devon from London and the food and service were remarkable, we were so pleased that we also made a point to stop on our way back up to London, next time in England we will return, one of the best lunches we had on our trip and the staff are very friendly.

A fantastic find through Tripadvisor 😊 Spent a weekend in Somerset, touring out of Ilchester. Cross between a pub and a hotel ( Inn? ) Clean and Comfortable family bedroom, Excellent Restaurant but tiny bar which is a plus when sleeping upstairs. Those wanting to just 'Drink' will probably go to The Bull pub across the road anyway. Breakfast was... More

Booked at the Ilchester arms very last minute, not expecting much. Bowled over by friendly welcome, cleanliness and the fantastic breakfast. Very good value for money and highly recommended. Excellent service, a comfortable bed and a great breakfast with free newspapers.

One night stay on business as I was travelling between Barnstaple and Verwood. No complaints at all. Room was much better than I expected, large comfortable bed, well set out bathroom. Food was great, beer good too. £60 B&B, can't go wrong. Will I return? You bet!!

Everything I needed for a business stop over was provided simply and easily. Staff were welcoming and helpful, car park easy, wifi worked and excellent meals were on site. I could have wandered out and found a different restaurant (there was another pub across the road and an Italian nearby), but I enjoyed a delicious evening meal, freshly cooked. Breakfast... More
