The Ilchester Arms is a lovely mellow building in an old town square, dating back to the 17th century. Inside, whilst the historic atmosphere remains, skillful refitting has resulted in our room, for one, being interestingly old-looking, whilst being immaculately decorated and draught free. The restaurant is pleasant, with interesting meals at good prices, whilst the bar has a wide... More

We have stayed here a few time and have always been more than happy, however on our last stay things seemed to have slipped. Our room, which overlooked the garden, was shabby. There was a cracked pane of glass in the window, the seal around the bath was black in places and the towels were way past their best. Breakfast... More

I stayed for a 5 nights on business. Staff was very friendly and immediately made me feel at home. Like many family hotels, the pub staff doubles as the reception. Check-in was very simple (I had booked and pre-paid on-line). I had a large room facing the entrance (normally used by families as there was a small bunk bed in... More

Typical british food, quality ingredients and good service. Location is easy to find on main road. We arrived late but they were more than happy to serve us. Steak and lamb were excellent. Definitely worth a visit!

We stopped over for one night last week on our journey to the West Country and the Ilchester Arms proved to be a good stopover. The room was quite adequate and the restaurant food was very good. It has a good "pub" feel to it and we would consider it value for money.

Stayed here for one night. The landlady couldn't do enough to help, including moving our room down one level to accommodate my elderly father in law and introducing him to a local. The food was absolutely awesome. I had sensational lamb and my partners pie and father in laws cod were awesome. Lovely village pub. Large comfortable rooms. Definitely recommended.

Whenever I have to work at Yeovilton Naval Air Station, I always stay at the lovely Ilchester Arms. Rooms are very comfy, food is out of this world & all the staff are so friendly & helpful. Nice real ales & a good wine cellar ensure my stays are most enjoyable.

Stayed for only one night passing through but service, food and wine were excellent - will return for a longer stay next time. Friendly staff and great food would recommend the scallops, lamb, brulee. Great to see cold wheat beer (wiesbier) served perfectly. Welldone and thank you to all the staff.
