We booked here at quite short notice due to a family funeral. The room was quite small; the bed was only just a double and there was limited storage and circulation space. However, it was perfectly adequate for our purposes, with a small but OK en-suite. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, with very good quality home cooked ingredients. Overall... More

One of the few places open on a Sunday evening for dinner. Positioned close to Montecute House in the peaceful village.... we sat in the garden reading before they started doing dinner at 6pm. The quality of the food was superb and the menu choices a good range. and the prices very reasonable. I had duck and my wife had... More

Everyone in the pub were pleasant and helpful. The room was exceptionally small and only had space for one chair; therefore, one of us had to sit on the bed. Wardrobe is tiny. The cooked breakfast was dripping in grease although next day we had scrambled eggs and poached eggs respectively which were much better. This accommodation was tolerable for... More

Three couples spent three nights at this inn and turned out to be a really good choice. It was a very central location in the village and in walking distance of Montecute House. The food was very good especially the evening meal, the duck a highlight, the wines on offer were of a wide variety. My only wish would be... More

Hadn't been to this place for years. We have now been twice in 2 weeks as the food and service are so good. We have tried a couple of different starters, scallops, pork and smoked chicken terrine and asparagus with duck egg, all have been beautifully presented, flavoursome and at the correct temperature. We have tried the fish of the... More

We were looking for a stop over en-route to the West Country and decided The Kings Arms looked just what we were after. We were looked after as soon as we arrived (plus dog) and were shown to a very nice room. We stayed for dinner which was really lovely. The place was packed and I can see why. Good... More

So, there we were in the beautiful village of Montacute. Never one to miss out on a Sunday roast, we went as a family to the traditional village pub, the King's Arms. The welcome was beyond criticism and the ambience (Terrible word! ) was brilliant. A comfortable table with attentive and friendly staff. The much anticipated roast (beef, of course)... More
