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

There must be 2 The Hood Arms in Kilve, as we certainly do not recognise the one we visit as the one receiving bad comments. In the time that we have been using The Hood Arms I can honestly say that we have NEVER had a bad meal and we've had a few I am happy to say , even... More

This place was not as clean or kept very well for the amount charged and for a pub that prides itself on its food the dinner left me with an upset stomach and the breakfast was poor! The staff were unfriendly and slow

Our room was fabulous and far exceeded our expectations. However, breakfast was variable and service could be improved. In my opinion the landlord needs to be much more welcoming to his guests. We felt as if we were intruding when we asked for a drink late at night. I found him rude and opinionated and although the room was great... More

Organised a party of 18x to stay @ the Hood' recently, as a base for three days walking in The Quantocks. Lovely old place, well kept real ale, decent wine list & the breakfasts & particularly the dinners were excellent (the Head Chef, Ian, is an ex-chef from the QE2). Rooms comfortable & warm, but if you are in a... More

Twice visited The Hood Arms now. First visit the previous weekend after taking a walk I stopped by in Kilve and stopped in for a couple of drinks. Very clean, good selection of drinks available. Was served by Jasmine and Charlie and could not fault service at all. Second visit this weekend stopped in again on Saturday for lunch. Food... More
