Reviews - The Phelips Arms

4Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
2 THE BOROUGH , MONTACUTE, TA15 6XB
This splendid village pub offers a warm and hospitable welcome. Sample our great real ales, tasty snacks and mouth-watering, home-cooked meals. We source our ingredients locally, our home-roasted honey ham is a real treat! See our daily Specials board for a wide choice.
If you are planning to explore lovely South Somerset, or you're here on business, why not stay in one of our charming guest-rooms? Their architecture is 18th century but they have a complete range of modern facilities and can be booked online.
Our beautiful walled garden is an idyllic spot on a sunny day, sit back and relax. Or, if you need to work up an appetite, why not try your arm at traditional West Country skittles!

We 200 yards away from Montacute House. This famous, architecturally unique property is now owned by the National Trust. An Elizabethan jewel set in formal gardens and glorious parkland, it is not to be missed. A few doors away is a fascinating TV and radio museum, in the neighbouring village a venerable priory and, a short drive away, the Fleet Air Arm Museum. From ancient to modern, we have something for everyone!

The Phelips Arms Head Chef/landlady, Nicola, produces wonderful home-cooked food from best quality ingredients, sourced locally where possible.

For lunch, try a sandwich, a baguette, or perhaps a ploughman's. If you fancy something more substantial, our home-made steak and Palmer's Copper ale pie will satisfy the heartiest appetite!

On a Sunday, indulge in a traditional roast with a choice of meats. Sunday lunch is served from 12:00 till 16:00 with the pub closing at 18:00, (Sundays only).

In the evening, treat yourself to a delicious three course meal selected from our Specials board, which always includes vegetarian options. Enjoy a glass of wine, or quench your thirst with a perfectly kept pint of Palmer's Brewery ale.

Our letting rooms each have their own character. We have one single with en-suite,one family room comprising a double bed, single bed and en-suite, one twin with private bathroom, three double rooms with en-suite One of which is also dog friendly at only an additional £10 per night per dog.

All rooms are equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, colour television with digital freeview, hair dryer and a radio alarm clock. Wi Fi & Ironing facilities are also available free of charge.

Come the morning, enjoy a full hearty English breakfast, plus tea or coffee, cereals, grapefruit, fruit juices and toast and jam. The perfect start to a day spent exploring your surroundings.

The Phelips Arms
We were delighted with our 2 night stay at The Phelips Arms. The owners and staff are very welcoming and helpful. Rooms are well furnished, clean and comfortable. The food on the menu is extensive, and there is always a specials board to choose from as well. The fish cakes are delicious as is the duck and noodles. Desserts are generous in size and spoilt for choice. Good choice at breakfast too.
We chose The Phelips as it is so well located for a visit to Montacute House, and an excellent base for other local places of interest (Barrington Court, LytesCary, Haynes Motor Museum to name a few)
Would recommend for a weekend break, or short mid-week stay

Super value and very friendly!
I can fully recommend this little village pub, doing a great job with lots of real ales and interesting menu choices. Brilliant breakfast selection and on day two I asked for a bit less as it was too much for a quick start to the day.
I cannot fault Ade the landlord or his partner who both did a cracking job. Handy for Montecute house and the super quintessential south Somerset village where they are situated. I will be booking again.

Over night stay
The overall stay was very good, good location for the wedding we were attending. The room was very clean and had everything needed. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The food looked nice although we didn't eat.
The only slight negative was the shower, didnt run very fast unless it was up very hot.
Would defiantly stay again and recommend.
