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

We stopped off here for some lunch after visiting the fleet air museum. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. The food is of a good quality and fairly priced. We sat outside in a nice garden area as it was a lovely day.

We were looking for somewhere to eat after visiting the Air Museum up the road and decided to see what was in Ilchester. The village itself is a lot smaller than we expected, but the Ilchester Arms fits the bill just right. The menu is a good size and the staff are friendly. We sat outside as the sun was... More

The Bistro at The Ilchester Arms looks attractive but the food looks better on the menu than on the plate. Two of us started with duck pancakes and the usual sauce with spring onion and cucumber. The duck was plentiful, but soggy and the pancakes were cold. The cucumber and onions were fine as was the sauce, which no doubt... More

Popped in for a meal the other night and I think has improved over the last couple of years. Really good choice on menu for all tastes and excellent value for money. Food and service are both top quality

We popped in here on the way home from Bovey Castle - highly recommended. Sunday lunches are excellent here - great selection of veg - quality meat - served in nice surroundings. Great service too.
