I was really hoping that this meal was going to be good. Sadly, yet again (we came about 18 months ago) it was not good. Cannot understand why as they were not rushed off their feet as there were only a couple of tables booked. You had to ask for the bar staff's attention as they were permanently chatting and... More

Lots of atmosphere in this 15th century inn. Spotlessly clean, food excellent and staff friendly and efficient. Award-winning chef provides a varied and interesting menu. Our break was a Wowcher offer but we didn't sense any difference in how we were treated. Nothing was too much trouble. We'll be back, even at full price it's well worth it.

We stayed here earlier this year. The room was fine - not bad, but not great either. But the real memory of the place was how awful the food was. We had to send the lasagne back - it was supposed to be beef, but I thought it tasted like pork, and my partner thought it was actually off. Either... More

We were told we had to call ahead if arriving in the afternoon so someone would be there to check us in. This was not possible to time so we delayed our arrival to after 6pm which was not ideal especially with a small child. The room was old fashioned and not much space. No bath only shower so unable...

Went on a "steak night" where all steaks were £10 . The steak was certainly not a sirloin and was fatty and tasteless . The mushroom was cold and the tomato not cooked although it was allegedly "oven baked". The dessert was a summer fruit meringue which cost £5.99 and was a meringue with one strawberry and two raspberries!!!. Had... More

We met with friends for a celebratory birthday meal. We wanted an early meal as we had distances to travel after and so arrived just before 6.30 pm, which was our time for the table reservation. The restaurant was not busy at this time. There was no urgency in taking our order, but what really annoyed us was the long... More

We stayed in the Helyar Arms for a week in early August. The village was lovely but the Inn was almost impossible to find. The accommodation was not particularly clean and rooms were not serviced regularly during our stay. At times it was difficult to tell either way whether they had been serviced at all. The lights were not working... More

The Helyar Arms is a lovely 17th century inn. They are justly proud of their kitchen. We had a lovely dinner there, as well as a fine breakfast. The room was perfectly comfortable, with modern fittings. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Do note that the reception desk is not continually staffed (they make this clear on their website),... More
