My friends and I had visited this pub a few years ago and it was not very impressive at the time.When we heard that it had been sold and refurbished we were keen to try it again. First impressions were good as it is a lovely old building with tasteful sympathetic decor. However on looking at the food menu we... More

Better to book in advance, because this pub is very popular. This was the second time we went there and in both the food was excellent. The atmosphere brings you back to the past and the place is warm and welcoming. The staff is gentle and this is a place where we would like to come back very soon!

Visited here for first time after checking out on line. Good sized car park. Nice friendly greeting, shown to our table and menus provided. Great choice at reasonable price. Wine List good but slightly pricey. We chose goose and plum burgers which were delicious, just melted in the mouth. This was followed up by one of special ice creams, elderflower... More

We wanted a 2 day stay in a quite location with easy access to Dorset. We found The Helyar Arms and it was everything we wanted and more. Comfortable room, great food and friendly attentive staff. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The food was good and at a sensible price. Another great advantage for us was that our dog... More

This is an excellent pub with a very good restaurant. Service was very friendly and efficient and the food and drink are of a very high standard. I was surprised at the end to receive such a reasonable bill as the overall quality was so good. I would recommend this pub wholeheartedly and my only regret is it not closer... More

The staff are always very nice, can't do enough for you. We then came on the following Thursday, and had a starter of fresh potted crab, with toasted Artisan bread, followed by the... More

Dropped in for evening meal en route home, menu was exactly as the website (no daily specials). Good value for money, starter of chicken livers with apple and walnuts very well prepared and a main course of sirloin in tarragon sauce (warm) on a salad of mixed leaves with pea shoots and baby broad beans ideal for the warm summer...

If you are ever in the Yeovil area and need a place to stay this is it. We found it by chance on google and so glad we did. We were greeted by Patrick who made us feel at home straight away. We needed a cab to the Yeovil show ground which was quite a wait. "I'll take you he... More

We stayed one night on our way home in this charming old pub, tastefully decorated, in a very pretty village. Our room was comfy, quiet and spotless with an ensuit shower. Dinner was good, served by friendly staff and the breakfast was great too. The owners are lovely people and we wish them every success, they deserve it. We hope... More
