Agreed to meet friends here for coffee primarily to view the art work for sale. 10.30 meet turned into a 14:00 finish as we decided to stay for lunch too! So glad we did. As well as the great coffee and really great Rosemary shortbread (sounds strange tastes delicious!) we enjoyed a fantastic lunch. Don't be fooled by the 'lite... More

Spent a delightful time here at the Kings Arms. We were on a trip down memory lane visiting some memorable places in Dorset and Somerset and over the years have driven passed this hotel many times. Well, as our first time as a resident, we certainly were not disappointed. The staff are extremely welcoming and no request was too small.... More

Stayed in the Kings Arms when on trip to visit nearby THALES site. A very good local hotel. Rooms are large and well, recently, refurbished. A great local pub bar in the hotel and great pub/restaurant menu. Quiet at night (early August), so sound sleep assured for me

We have been to the Kings Arms many times over the years as a couple, with family and with friends in a small group and a couple of times with a large group of friends - as we did most recently for a surprise birthday party. Every time the welcome has been warm, the food has been good, sometimes catastrophically... More

Myself and three friends have just returned from a last minute stay here. The hotel is beautiful with really well thought out rooms. We arrived on a Sunday evening and decided to eat. The food was exquisite and the staff were welcoming. The location is remote - but just what we wanted as an escape from our commuter lives.

Stayed here for one night and it was absolutely lovely. The location is remote but beautiful and perfect for a quiet little get away. Arrived around lunch time and the both of us enjoyed the food and the good choice of wine on offer in the bar as well as a meal too in the restaurant that evening. Also, we... More

What more can you ask really? A business lunch in an informal setting while we discuss contracts in a beautiful Somerset village. The service was, and I am assured by a local, is always, relaxed and effortless. The food was presented beautifully, and without doubt local produce of the highest quality. The atmosphere is charming, this was a mid week... More

We have regularly passed the Kings Arms and commented on how beautifully it sits in his location surrounded by hills and fields with the green close by. The staff are friendly and helpful and engage well with guests. The hotel has a large car park over the road. The bar area offers a selection of places to sit and there... More
