Enjoyed a good pub lunch here, in what I think must be a refurbished pub/restaurant - and very well done out too, with a proper log stove, scrubbed tables and a classy feel to it. The menu was varied and good value - open sandwiches were filling and well-presented by pleasant staff, and wine by the glass excellent value here...

Very glad to see this Pub back on the map! New owners are doing a great job and I had a very very pleasant stay. Good menu and good wine, all made perfect with a gorgeous roaring log burner! Looking forwards to being back there in the summer

The last time we went to the Helyar it was on my partner's 40th 5 years ago. They had given our booked table away to another couple and had nothing suitable for me to eat on the menu (I am allergic to nuts and was pregnant at the time!) so we went elsewhere but I grew up in East Coker...

We popped into The Helyar Arms for a drink after a country walk. It's cosy, welcoming, warm and friendly. Good range of drinks. It's well worth a visit. There is a lot of space for parking which is a great bonus.

food is over priced and not well cooked , service is ok . belly pork was defrosted and warmed in oven, the cracking was rubber /jelly texture. the best thing to have would be the burgers , come from local supplier. the set out of bar area has been well laid out and painted to a good finish

Great little pub in a gorgeous village. The hosts were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. Comfy bed in a very pretty room. We took our dog and he was made most welcome. We would definitely stay here again.

We decided to try this as there were new(ish) owners and we had enjoyed the food with the previous owners so hoped this would be replicated. The food was variable in quality, the crab pate was excellent but the houmous tasted of nothing in particular, they had run out of artisan bread (it was a bank holiday monday) which was...

I can not recommend the Helyar Arms enough. We received a warm welcome from the friendly hosts. We stayed overnight and our room was cosy and very comfortable. The food was perfect as was the atmosphere. Our breakfast Sunday morning was delicious, full English with a choice of fruit, cereals, yogurts and juices if we wished. We will definitely be...
