Three friends met up for a Christmas catch-up. We ordered the fillet steak. We were not disappointed, the steak melted in the mouth. The accompanying vegetables were perfectly cooked. Fantastic! A peaceful ambiance which made for a relaxing evening. No shouting above crowds. Would recommend to anyone who wants to chat over lovely food.

We came for the Christmas lunch menu, three courses for a fixed price. We arrived just before our allotted booked time on a Friday lunchtime, had drinks at the well stocked bar and when all of our party had arrived we were seated at our nicely laid out Christmas table. Our pre ordered starters, main and dessert were all of...

We had a wonderful evening in the Garden Room with a delicious buffet and urn of mulled wine supplied by the friendly staff at the Arms. The party was for both adults and children and this was catered for in the choice of food of which there was a very generous amount. The staff regularly checked to see if we...

Had excellent lunch, promptly made with care and expertise. Decor prepared for Christmas thoughtfully - just a bit wacky. Many tables, armchairs and log fire. Landlord very relaxed and welcoming. New kitchen staff who seem very competent. Good place to eat on a cold day in winter.

Enjoyed a one night stay in the Ilchester arms, the room was nice and homely. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the young man behind the bar called Joseph. The food was delicious, I particularly enjoyed my ham, egg and chips for lunch

Although the staff seem very pleasant. The rooms are dated and lack imagination..the beds are horrendous as is the uneven floor. The whole place needs a good clean. Halloween has been and gone. Get rid off the cob webs. While having coffee after breakfast. I noticed a dog in the kitchen... come on basic hygiene

The service was excellent. The girls in the bar and restaurant were helpful and quick. The food was not what I would have expected for the price. The fishcake starters were good but literally 2 fishcakes and bit of sauce no garnish. The pastry steak and ale pie would have been criticised by Paul Hollywood as being over worked so...
