A decent pint A great burger and chips Excellent fish & chips with fish on a heap of mushy peas A friendly, helpful, chatty and very efficient young waitress A great find in little Ilchester. Noticed a TA Cert of Excellence on the way out - they deserve it.

We enjoyed our evening meal here. The young staff are well trained and make an effort to be friendly and helpful. The food was good and reasonably priced. We would go again.

Very warm and cosy hotel. The breakfast was very good. And if you fancy something other than restaurant food there's a pub across the road owned by the same people.

Stayed at this hotel for a few days, and one of the many highlights was the quality of the food. Couldn't find fault even if we tried. Staff amazingly friendly and helpful. They made us feel totally at home and spared no expense in making us feel relaxed and catered for. Great beer and cider on tap. Closed on Sunday... More

Called in for dinner here with friends when visiting Somerset. The food was excellent and there was a good menu with plenty of choice. The ambience was lovely in this charming old place and the service excellent. Would highly recommend.

Four of us ended up here having intended to use the local pub (which was closed). Nice atmosphere, good food (Fish and chips was excellent) and not too pricey. If you're in the area, or want a stopping point just off the A303 then this is well worth the short time it takes to scoot down to the village of... More
