As if it was we would spend far too much time here! A homely bar decorated with riding and hunting paraphernalia with comfy chairs, log burner and good ale. Very nice food - some of the best liver we have had, exceedingly dog friendly with no restrictions where they can go, very welcoming and friendly staff. The room was spotless,... More

Lovey stay, lovely people, lovely food. Last minute booking when looking for somewhere for short beak (4 nights). Living in the north east,(Newcastle upon Tyne - proper North - not Manchester!) & not being able to contemplate the full drive to Devon/Cornwall without an overnight stop (which we didn't have time for), we settled for The Kilve Arms in Somerset...

Stayed at the Hood Arms recently. The Landlord and all the staff were lovely people and were extremly attentive. Plus the food was very tasty. This place could be a gem with a few tweaks. It has so much charm, but was let down by a few things. The room we stayed in was a little tired. Blind was filthy.... More

Enjoyed our short stay in the Hood Arms last night. VERY dog friendly and accommodating with good food and beer and a really good atmosphere in a pub that's quite rustic, but clean. Nice beer garden that we didn't get to use due to the weather. Room was large and comfortable though might need a bit of modernisation. Breakfast was... More

Having chosen accommodation in Kilve to be in walking distance of a pub we booked for Sunday Lunch hoping for many meals to follow during our stay. There was a long wait for drinks and the order was incorrect when served. Reluctantly a replacement was produced with no apology and, to add insult to injury, both drinks were on our... More

Wonderful food, very friendly staff & locals. Will definitely return. We stayed when they had an open mic night for poets & we met some lovely people. The pub is dog friendly & visitor friendly! Ideal for walkers & walking down to the start of the Jurassic Coast.

Cannot understand low score reviews - maybe everywhere has an "off day". Our two night stay was excellent from arrival to departure. We had a spacious bedroom, 4-poster bed with a very comfortable mattress. Our first evening meal was a shared baked camembert cheese with local bread - delicious. To follow was fish and chips, light crisp batter, well cooked... More

Visited The Hood arms with my husband daughter and dog for Sunday lunch. My daughter and I had the beef rib roast and my husband the lamb. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and having been on a carb free diet for the last 3 weeks the Yorkshire puds were to die for. Really nice atmosphere in the pub and... More

We have gone to this pub each time we visit Kilve and will not eat here again. The girl behind the counter was good, she was only serving drinks, she pointed at the other lady and told us to grab a table and the other lady would take our order. The person who was supposed to take the food orders... More
