I have been to the Ilchester arms on a number of occasions and they always provide a fantastic service and top quality food. Doesn't matter how big or small of a group you may be part of the staff never fail to deliver. A very good variation of dishes available on the menu and a daily specials board. Restaurant also...

Very comfortable and friendly, nice traditional feel with lovely view over the pretty square. Great restaurant with an amazing steak dinner for two for £20! Bonus! I would recommend this hotel highly for travellers passing through to Devon and Cornwall or wanting to explore this beautiful part of Somerset.

We had a long drive down the A303 and needed a breakfast stop off. We found a great place. Good food well cooked just for us and a sensible price. the serve yourself breakfast could do with a minor improvement but overall it was a real find. We will go back I am sure.

This hotel is in the centre of Ilchester and only minutes from the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. The staff were very good and made you feel very welcome. The Bistro food was very good and we ate there both nights we stayed. Good fresh food with a good choice at reasonable prices. Breakfast was freshly cooked and high... More

Hotel was a bit old but nice in a quaint sort of way. The room was decent sized but again the soft and hard furnishings were a bit old. Service was very friendly and we were given a good choice for breakfast. Our room overlooked the main road but not too much traffic, so noise levers were acceptable. Would definitely... More

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.
