Delightful staff, front and back. The chefs cook up some lovely pub food, that couldn't be faulted. My black spot sausages and mashed spuds, and reduced sauce, were superb. Eton mess for afters not that tardy either. Worth dropping in, especially if you are visiting the fleet air arm museum up the road. Beer great as well as the choices.

Once again, I have had a lovely few nights at the Ilchester Arms. Staff are excellent Rooms are very comfortable and homely. The food is always spot on, with good size portions at a reasonable price. The full breakfast is cooked to perfection. I visit Ilchester twice a year and the Ilchester Arms is always my first choice to stay.

We stopped here for coffee on our travels and were greeted by friendly staff. The coffee here was excellent and there a few hotels who could learn how to do it from them. This is local village Pub with rooms and is a good place to hang out and just be. Great for coffee

Popped in on our way from visiting my mum in hospital, very hungry and emotionally drained. The waitress asked if we had booked to which we replied no. She found us a table . We looked at the menu, I plumped for for the belly pork and my hubby the ham egg n chips. We were not disappointed, the food... More

Called in for a late lunch recently. Despite arriving a few moments before they were due to stop serving, the staff were really happy to accommodate us. The quality of the lunch and the ale was super and it was a treat to have the beer garden available on such a sunny day. A lovely surprise to find such a... More

We visited this hotel on the way to Falmouth and, because it was so good, we returned for a second visit on the way home. On both occasions we had lunch and the food was superb and also good value. We were particularly impressed that, on our return visit, one of the items on the Specials Menu which we enjoyed... More

Stayed at the Ilchester Arms overnight on the way home from holiday. Immediately impressed from the outside and also with the inside. An old Inn but exceptionally well maintained, clean and pleasing appearance. The bedroom was large as was the ensuite bathroom and even had a walk in wardrobe. Restaurant and breakfast room pleasant. Dinner was tasty, freshly prepared and... More

Got a room when looking for somewhere to stay last minute. The room was ok, a little dated and small but tidy and clean. Food was lovely and interesting if a little on the expensive side. Would try it again.

The staff here are incredibly helpful. We arrived earlier than check in, frantic and running super late for a wedding a few miles away. When it turned out no taxis were available, a member of staff offered to drive us which meant we made the ceremony on time! The rooms are pleasant enough, roomy and well equipped. V comfortable sleep.... More
