The psalters is a wonderful restaurant. The room is looking very noble as is the food. It was one of the best things I ever ate there and the price was moderate and i think it was very cheap for such good food. I can...More

We had lunch here on the way to Dunster Castle. It's a great really old pub. Food good (nothing fancy, good food, well cooked and presented) and served quickly. Staff friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault it!

A dinner party here with friends was rather disappointing as the service was unexpectedly sluggish and erratic, with wine late served. Several side dishes were initially missing, for which were not then charged. The courses varied; some, as one hoped, were indeed pretty good but...More

Psalter's Restaurant is named after the famous Luttrell Psalter, one of the best preserved medieval books now held in the British museum. Commissioned by Sir Geoffrey Luttrell in the early 1300s, whose family owned Dunster Castle, much of the village of Dunster and two of the buildings that make up The Luttrell Arms, we felt it appropriate to mark our connection in this way. We hope that our restaurant will combine the historic legacy and character reflected in the ancient architecture so authentically preserved in the buildings of Dunster and the Luttrell Arms with the very best of today's British hospitality and cuisine. We believe in using local produce that is 100% traceable, involving as few food miles as possible. We pride ourselves on simple preparation and beautiful presentation. We also support the local economy wherever possible.
