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

Ordered a basic burger. It was under cooked and cold What a surprise!!

We stopped in Ilchester on the way home for lunch and were delighted to find the Ilchester Arms. There was a good choice of food on the menu and the servings were enormous! The meals were well presented and very tasty. We would certainly recommend a lunch here and will stop the next time we are in the area.
