“Top quality villiage pub”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Just come back from Kilve and am not the sort of person to usually write reviews but felt the need to comment on what a lovely pub the Hood is. Top quality food and local beers and extremely friendly (welcomed my crazy chocolate lab and two young daughters. Nice to see a successful local village pub rather than a dying one just waiting to be taken over by a faceless chain.

My Husband and I had two very nice lunches here with our black lab, whilst on holiday in the area. The food was lovely and the garden is very nice. Would definitely recommend.

“A Little Over the Top”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a really nice Pub/Restaurant. We visited because we wanted a drink (we had already eaten), however the first question we were asked was " are you eating with us today". My reply was obviously no. Drinks arrived -ok. I was then asked about 4 times by various staff if we were eating. We got so fed up with this we left - probably never to return............................

“17th century coaching inn”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

My husband had moules marinieres, which smelt and looked delicious. He said they were. I had a ciabatta roll filled with apple smoked cheddar and homemade chutney. This came with crisps and salad, which included homemade coleslaw. A delicious lunch.
