Had a meal on Tuesday evening with friends. We were impressed with the decor and ambience however the food was disappointing and overpriced. In particular the fish and chips came with batter which was crisp on the outside but thick and soggy inside. The batter had to be all removed from the fish as it was not edible. When told... More

Nice bar and a nice selection of beers and light lunches. Very busy but worth the wait. Free wifi with no password. Very poor O2 mobile reception, but that seems to sum up the whole area! Parking in Dunster is very difficult to find. If we were to visit again we would certainly go back to The l Arms.

Dunster itself is a delightful mediaeval village and the Luttrell Arms is in the centre. tastefully decorated and maintained to a very high standard this is a super hotel. Bags of history and character. Staff cannot do enough for you and are friendly, helpful and charming. Good menus in both the bar and the restaurant. Grab a table in the... More

Spent two nights. Breakfast's were delicious- granola and yoghurt recommended, followed by eggs on toast provided a good basis for our planned walking holiday. Enjoyed a lovely spring vegetable risotto in the bar (nice ambiance) on one night and had a party celebration dinner on the second night where the food quality was exceptional: served hot, imaginative dishes, and the...

Visited with friends on Saturday lunch time - what a great location and good solid pub grub. The thing that makes this a stand out place for lunch is the quirky rooms, ye olde England setting, the woodburner and the great pub grub.

This excellent hotel in Dunster has it all. Great service, comfortable rooms and great food. Its also perfectly located to explore Exmoor's incredible scenery and beautiful coastline. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to experience a 5 star service at a reasonable price.

The Luttrells is a lovely place to go for a drink to soak up the old charm of the village especially the Yarn Market. Good choice of non-alcoholic drinks. The Restaurant looked nice for a special occasion. Nice atmosphere. The building itself is beautiful as is Dunster - a truly special village.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. If you haven't eaten with us before then Psalter's restaurant is also worth a visit, lunches are very reasonable - we are starting a new lunch offer 2 main course meals for £19.95 and you can dine alfresco in the gorgeous garden (whilst the sun shines!) I hope we... More

We stayed here recently during a weekend break in Dunster and cannot recommend the hotel enough. It's decor and rooms are all wonderfully in keeping with the age and ambience of the building and of Dunster itself (that's not to say they are dated at all!), with lots of original features. The staff are warm and welcoming, and the bar... More

It's over 35 years since we first stayed at the Luttrell Arms, then run by THF. It's improved out of all recognition since then. We booked room 12, a four poster room with a spectacular 17th century fireplace and a superb view of the famous yarn market. The bar is delightful and very popular with local diners; the restaurant is... More

Have just spent another excellent long weekend at the Luttrell and looking forward to the next one early May. Usually have a superior room booked late this time so took a standard room - very small for us having the dog with us, but beautifully decorated and being at the back of the hotel was very quiet. Check in and... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I am sorry that you found the WIFI connection to be poor, we have just renewed the system which to my knowledge has been a vast improvement (super fast broad band has now arrived in Dunster!) I will look into the connection problems immediately, thank you for letting us know. We look forward to... More
