Family visit after a trek up May Hill saw a warm welcome for all. Wood burning stove added to the warmth, good ale and comprehensive food menu. In fact, the children's menu was as mouth-watering as the adults'. Highly recommended.

My family and I discovered this wonderful gastropub earlier this year and we have ventured to the Kilcott Inn on many occasions since, so we knew they wouldn't let us down for Christmas Day lunch. The cost was £65.00 per person, which is very reasonable and we were all greeted with a glass of champagne upon our arrival. The service... More

We stayed for one night when catching up with friends in area. Good country pub atmosphere with friendly staff. Lunch menu was good and breakfast the next day was equally good. Rooms are spacious, well decorated and comfortable. There is some noise from bar but to be expected in any accommodation in a small pub. Will definitely stay again if... More

Called in this pub for lunch which proved a disastrous choice. My wife and I chose the freshly beer battered fish and chips was one of the poorest meals we have ever had presented. Who on earth eats this pigswill........ Whilst the fish was edible the batter was uncooked, slimy and was totally unappealing. I invited the waitress over and... More

Fabulous meal included gluten free options. Excellent service, presentation and varied menu. Difficult choice. Great atmosphere and wood burning stove. What more could we ask for?

Visited the Kilcot Inn today for lunch. Very busy in a pre-Christmas period so my only complaint would be that they were a might short-handed, so there was a considerable wait for food to arrive. However the service was charming, the staff knowledgeable and the ambience very pleasant. When the food arrived it was excellent - tasty, hot and well... More
