It was a 45 minutes walk from the b & b but really was worth it. I had an 8 Oz steak and it was delicious. The pub/restaurant is really traditional in a small village well off any main roads and well worth a visit!

Excellent food, terrible service. Our waitress looked unhappy and didn’t really know what she was doing. The food was good though.

We stayed here for one night on a bicycle trip and it was excellent. The room was bright and fresh with good quality beds and bedding and a smart bathroom. Meals were not being served that evening but breakfast the following day was the best...of the trip. Really good quality ingredients; such a change from the cheap and poor quality often served. I wish everywhere we stay could be as good as the Kilpeck Inn.More

Came with extended family of 10 from Boston and Munich to show the out-of-towners "real" British fish-and-chips in a "real" English country pub. There wasn't a crumb left on a plate (including the delicious Bream and fishcakes that others ordered). We sat inside in a...side room which gave us a lovely sense of privacy and occasion, and the staff were charming and accommodating, and patient with the two kids in our group. Cannot wait to return on my next visit home!More

A pleasant drive to this appealing place was followed by an excellent lunch. Food was beautifully presented and equally delicious. Service was timely without being intrusive. Ice cream even served at exactly the right temperature! Lots of lovely looking walks nearby so I suspect this...may became a family favourite. Thank you to all who interacted with us.More

After an exquisite morning visiting the church of St Mary and St David at Kilpeck we strolled down the road to The Kilpeck Inn for lunch. Didn't know anything about it, but we were so very glad we found it. THIS PLACE IS EVERYTHING IT...SHOULD BE - AND EVERYTHING ANYONE COULD POSSIBLY WANT. It's welcoming, friendly and efficient, and offers a sensibly-priced menu to suit all tastes. Our vegetarian was very happy. The Inn also has enough room to cope with folks who (like us) drop in on spec. Food and service are all magnificent, and a brilliant time was had by everyone. Difficult to find more glowing terms to come up with, but if I could, I would. Five stars seem ungenerous for this gem of a venue. A big thank-you to The Kilpeck Inn for making a great day perfect.More

Excellent food, good value for money and lovely atmosphere. Came for dinner on Saturday evening with family, food was lovely and well presented. Staff were good, if a little inattentive and in one case very inexperienced, and the pub and restaurant were really lovely.

Went there for lunch today, we were greeted and served by a very friendly polite young women, nothing was too much trouble for her a real pleasure. We had the roast beef sandwiches and a side order of chips, the beef was lovely and the...Rosemary salted chips were great real quality, we finished off with puddings which were delicious! We will definitely be going back to this fabulous pub.More

Had lunch on a Saturday after a wonderful exploration of the nearby famous medieval church and castle and were most pleasantly surprised. The sort of menu where you could have chosen lots of dishes-between three of us we enjoyed bream, fish and chips and duck...followed by sticky toffee pudding and a frangipane tart. We all agreed that our meals were delicious-hot, fresh, tasty, well presented and from locally sourced ingredients (where possible). Service was professional, unintrusive and friendly. The bar area where we were seated was cosy and dog friendly. Clean loos are always a good point -and not always a given, sadly. The resident spaniel was very attentive while we were eating but I think there was a bit of cupboard love going on there…Would definitely recommend and will be returning.More
