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.

Very friendly and accommodating landlords, who were welcoming and went out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
Very centrally based accommodation, with the added bonus that they could cater for meals downstairs in the pub.
A very full and hearty English breakfast was provided to energise you for a good morning's walk around the beautiful village of Montacute.
All in all, very good value for money and we will not hesitate to make another return booking soon!

The Phelips Arms have just been taken over by a young couple that we found to be extremely nice and helpful. The room was very pleasant ,full of character and a nice view over the village. Food was excellent with a good choice and great value for money. I highly recommend The Phellips Arms and would definitely come back again.

A good choice.
A very pleasant stay for my partner and my-self in this 17th century PH. The hosts are a delightful couple who have recently taken over the business and we wish them every success, Parking is good directly opposite , booking in simple and the room pleasant, functional and cosy. We ate in the bar and the food was good and well presented. Friends joined us for a drink after and the service and company were good. No adverse comments.

Montacute
En el pueblo de Montacute se encuentra una mansión en la que se rodó la película Sentido y Sensibilidad. The Phelips Arms es un Pub inglés con varias habitaciones. La ventana de la nuestra daba a los cubos de basura. Aunque estaba limpia, el precio me pareció excesivo para el servicio que ofrecía. Respecto a la atención al cliente no me gustó que me hicieran pagar la estancia antes de ver la habitación. El desayuno inglés poco variado. Comer y desayunar en un PUB no tiene mucho encanto.
