Description: 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.

Service very good by friendly, chatty staff. Excellent food.Although the choice was limited the quality more than made up for this as did the portion size. If your'e on a diet leave it at home and enjoy the food.

Just walked in looking for pasta so the boys could carbo load the night before a big bike race. No pasta alas. But looked like a lovely pub - atmosphere was great and the room atmospheric. They also had a fine dining restaurant that did not attract me as much. A great spot in a very sweet (medieval) town.

This place is truly awful for food. A nice looking pub that as previous review states, is reassuringly expensive. Unfortunately poor phone signal meant we were unable to check trip advisor when in the village, if we had we would have avoided!
We went for the chilli and the beef special. The chilli was a tin of tomatoes over minced beef. no flavour, no spice, no seasoning, frankly pretty gross. The cheap tortillas it was served with were stale. The salad was the best bit and that was just a few leaves and cucumber! The beef special (at around 15quid) was DISGUSTING! It was so sweet, the sauce would have been better suited to chocolate pudding! Even the potatoes and veg sides were swimming in sugar water. We're not fussy but this is not only overpriced but the kitchen clearly has no idea what it's doing. Oh and did I mention they listed it as a beef carbonara yet it came out as beef stew with potatoes and veg.... weird.
I usually take bad reviews on here with a pinch of salt but this place deserves all it gets. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!

We ended up here as a matter of necessity as it was raining, but liked the look of it from the outside and the menu was reassuringly expensive. However the quality of the food, when it came, was poor - I ordered a ploughmans - which cost £11 - substantially more than other places nearby. It was average at best, and the two small brown rolls that came with it were stale. When I asked for some fresh bread, two identical rolls which had clearly been in the microwave were produced. The waiter said they had been made that morning, but having made my own bread for some years I know what fresh bread is like and this wasn't it! Final straw was that no butter was provided on the plate, and when I asked for some a tiny scraping was produced which was just laughable. From the look of other recent reviews we weren't alone! Suggest heading to the other end of the main street where another restaurant looked much nicer and more reasonably priced.
