Stopped here for lunch on way home. Excellent and friendly staff, starters and sweets. Main roast a bit predictable. Advise booking as place was full (Sunday). Would be nice if staff acknowledged diners leaving with a thank you. However a lot of places are guilty of this, once bill has been paid. Would definitely return for the sweets, Eton Mess... More

Lovely warm welcoming hotel with modern clean and cosy rooms. We turned up last minute after our car broke down, with a baby, and were really welcomed despite it being a busy night for staff. Cot bed provided along with friendly smiles!

Halfway between Devon and London this was the perfect location to enjoy a family get-together. I booked it after reading previous reviews and am more than happy with the choice. From the minute our noisy group descended on strangers we were made to feel at home. Although I booked our meal towards the end of a busy lunch time nothing... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here on nye after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. The portions were huge, well presented and hot. The pies had real steak in, the burger yummy and the child's meal fab. This was served without question to a more mature member of our group as she wanted a smaller meal. The childs meal was... More

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
