Stayed at this great little hotel, the food and service was fabulous, the room I stayed in was Pincushion, it was comfortable and had everything I could of needed in there. Absolutely no complaints at all. The staff were very helpful and would highly recommend to all.

On a return trip trip to the area went to the Helyar Arms for the 1st time in 6 years, sadly food and service both well below par. Of the 5 groups dining, 3 had complained before we left with 1 yet to receive their food. My wife had one of the few veggie options a gnocchi dish which was... More

We have just stayed two nights at The Helyar Arms and had a fabulous time. The four of us had dinner both nights and the food was excellent. Breakfast was delicious too. All of the staff were so kind, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the whole place had a... More

Food was first class and service excellent. Prices of drinks too expensive and will quickly inflate your bill and leave a sting in an otherwise fabulous evening. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere.

I went for dinner with my partner and it was beyond awful. We walked in and was ignored for a good 10 minutes whilst the bar staff were playing on their phones and talking amongst themselves. I order a garlic bread basket for the table, it was warm bread buttered.....NOT garlic bread. We let it go as we were hungry... More

Returned here for the first time in 5 years to enjoy steak night. Had to go to bar and ask for menus, decided to have the steak and ordered onion rings, peppercorn sauce for extras. We waited for 40 minutes for our food to come- there was only one other couple in the place so way to long to wait.... More

Live in the village and often try to use the pub and support it. But to be honest it dosen t help itself. Went for Friday night drinks with two girlfriends. Kids playing noisy sword games in the drinking end of the bar. Fair enough! No music, fair enough, sat in area for drinkers, no lights on so struggled to... More

We would agree with many of the comments made by other reviewers - lovely old pub, idyllic setting, generally good food, variable service, somewhat chilly in the room and restaurant. We felt that the starters, whilst good, failed to meet our expectations from the descriptions on the menu, main courses were good and desserts were just o.k. Service was always... More
