Do not try and bring dogs to this establishment, even if they are clean. The landlady is the rudiest woman I have ever met. She should not be running an establishment that requires one to be hospitable. She seems to be bear a grudge over a disagreement over a bill that was not itemised by her as asked three years...

Hello, Firstly Dogs are absolutely welcome at the kings arms, just not in the restaurant, Going back three years you seem to have forgotten the real reason for the disagreement, I hold no grudge over that, it is the fact your party then tried to get people to cancel their Christmas bookings which seemed rather vindictive, as you are now...

Our latest visit was on my birthday. As before, we enjoyed an amazing dinner prepared by Chef Nick and his team. The design of the dining room complements the quality of the meal. We hope to return very soon

Great food, lovely wine and friendly service. Small enough to feel personal and a good menu. Always feel welcome here. Great for kids too. Good for larger parties as well; worth booking though as it's popular!

We stayed for two nights, the pub is situated about 15 minutes out of Yeovil in a fairly quiet village. Car park at the rear, and free Wi-Fi. The complementary tea and coffee in the rooms are very generous, so we did not have to ask for extra milk or tea bags, proper size mugs as well! We were situated...

A group of friends stayed last weekend. All the party commented on the superb food and friendly staff. We occupied 10 of the 15 rooms and everyone seemed content with them, especially the larger ones above the inn. Lovely touches with the furnishings.
