Located in the picturesque village of Symondsbury, The Ilchester Arms is a 15th century village inn with oak beams and a huge open fireplace in the bar area; it's the ideal choice for dining out, a stay of a night or longer or enjoying a relaxing drink in convivial company in the heart of the scenic West Dorset countryside. Whatever the occasion, be it a family celebration in the evening, a lunchtime get-together or a snack during a break in a day's walking, The Ilchester Arms can cater for your needs. Our menu offers something for everyone with locally-sourced produce used whenever possible. All our suppliers are local as is the vast majority of the ingredients used in our popular, tasty and nutritious meals. Five fine Palmers ales brewed in the original Old Brewery at Bridport are also available from the bar.
