We popped into the Ilchester Arms on the way back from Yeovil. We were too shopped out for coffee in Yeovil and it wasn't quite lunchtime so decided to try our luck in Ilchester on the way home. We each ordered a steak panini as a light lunch. It took a while coming but that was only because a wedding... More

Visited with my Husband and our friend. We all ordered the steak with chips. One was rare, mine was medium and one was well done. Miraculously they all appeared together, no more than 15 minutes after ordering. They were all done to perfection. 3 clean plates and 3 very happy customers. Pleasant and friendly staff. Very reasonably priced. Excellent value... More

Located on a main road so it is easy to find. Excellent service with staff very committed to making us feel happy - even though we arrived late.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here in very nice surroundings. We were made very welcome by the friendly staff into the relaxed atmosphere of the dining rooms. The food was very well cooked and was piping hot. We will certainly be visiting The Ilchester Arms again.

Had a lovely Sunday Lunch today at the Ilchester Arms. Used it as a half way house to meet my daughter from Wiltshire as it is just off the A303. Without fail the staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive to us and our 7 month old Granddaughter. The food was very good as was the service. It was nice to... More

My wife and I were hiking the SWC Path and stayed here one night. We stayed here and had dinner here too. The food was fine and service was good. It was not our best meal -- but hit the spot!

We stopped here to break up a long journey. It was exactly what we needed. Small beer garden, with shade and high chairs for our little daughter. Staff (owner?) where so lovely, and couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Good mix of food on the menu - pub grub and also 'fancier' stuff like the scallop and bacon salad... More
