A Lovely country Inn with plenty of character and very welcoming and dog friendly. We stayed for 2 nights with our hound and ate in the pub on both evenings and on both occasions the food was excellent. Later in the evening the chef spent a short while in the bar and also made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was... More

Called in for a drink while passing on our way to Dunster yesterday and spent a very pleasant hour browsing through the Sunday papers and country magazines sat by the log burner. A lovely old pub with character, sympathetically decorated and serving very good food. We visit whenever we are in the area and hope to stay overnight one day.

We have often stopped and had a meal at the Hood in Kilve and recently returned from a 5 night Christmas break. We found the whole experience fantastic and faultless! Like many others we had a truly memorable Christmas thanks to John, Nikki and their dedicated team who made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The... More

We have just returned from a three night break at the Hood Arms in Kilve. We were well looked after, nothing was too much trouble and the food was fab. The proprietors and the staff were friendly and efficient. I too was there on Christmas eve and was totally unaware of the landlord (John) being drunk or swearing and my... More

The food was very nice but unfortunately the landlord got more and more drunk through the evening and ended up swearing like a trooper at the bar. I wouldn't go again. He was chatting at our table far too much and almost insisting that we all join in with a book auction in the next bar, not what we went... More

After being recommended to us by a local when we were looking for somewhere to eat, we decided to give it a go. Big mistake. Initially the welcome was warm and inviting. However, we ordered as soon as the food service began (had to go to the bar to order as waitress continually ignored us). Food took an hour to... More

Arriving in the village for a long weekend, The Hood was the local and our obvious choice for our Friday night, we had booked, and was told that there was a 'spoof nite' so a normal menu was replaced with just the specials board. We enjoyed our evening, although the food was not 'special' the beer was. Staying until the... More

We stayed here as we wanted to visit the Bridgwater Carnival but wanted to stay in the countryside.We had the 2 bedroom family room which was perfect for us. Great facilities and amenities in the room. A small play area in the pub garden which the kids loved. We ate a meal in the restaurant which was lovely and a... More

Just returned from a wonderful break at the Hood Arms. This place is a little gem in the Somerset countryside. We stayed with another couple and our dogs. We could not have been made more welcome on our arrival. We were shown to our rooms with the offer of our bags being carried for us. The whole time we were... More
