Warm and Homely

I have stayed at the Bell Inn with my children a few times now.

The location suits me just fine and I love Ilminster. The bedroom is clean and comfortable, and feels homely. I like the pub environment. We all enjoy the breakfast.

Enjoyable stay at The Bell Inn

We arrived and the pub was closed, not a problem as clear instructions.

We were welcomed by Alan. He was honest about not having a wide menu but the children were well catered for and happy, portions were generous and speedy. The pub was quiet but the children were not made to feel in the way, they (and we) enjoyed the family friendly (as opposed to match) pool table. Our 8 year old enjoyed learning to play dominoes and our 10 year old enjoyed a game of chess. We enjoyed a peaceful night and breakfast was excellent the following morning. The Bell Inn doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It is was excellent value for money and we enjoyed being in a proper pub. Alan was most helpful and if we decide to explore Somerset further we'll happily return.

Very clean room and was only booked as a stop over for a long journey to Devon but wish we had paid more for more comfort.

Reviews said family run pub, but was more like one man, a pub full of men, not very comfortable for me, glad hubby was there. Very little choice in food, but it was cooked good. Working mans, builders pub, not familly or city, mini break place.
