We have been to the Luttrell Arms on several occasions over the past few years and always slightly disappointed but not enough for me to write about it. However, we decided to treat ourselves last weekend to a Sunday lunch. The pub was very quiet & we found no problem in finding a table. We ordered 3 roast lunches which...

Having loved the luttrels for so many years and recommended it to so many people, I am really disappointed with its decline. The bar menu was changed a while back and having tried quite a few options, it just isn't what it once was. The service has also slipped and you would expect more for the prices that are charged....

Chester is our 'family', we take him wherever we go and this is absolutely THE BEST dog friendly Hotel we have ever stayed in!!! The rooms are beautifully appointed for the humans and freshly laundered doggy beds are provided (in case you forget to pack your own). The gardens are easily accessed and have a gate into the grounds of...

Firstly I'd like to say the location, hotel and atmosphere are delightful. The food is another matter. I visited the Luttrell Arms with my partner and mother on Wednesday for my partners birthday. As we live locally and had visited before we thought it would be a nice treat. However it seems it depends on the day as to whether...

The Luttrell Arms in Dunster is a fabulous find in this picture postcard setting below Dunster Castle. This family run dog friendly romantic hotel is utterly charming, full of character with lovely lunches, log fires, a superb secret garden & is consistently excellent!

I ordered the fish and chips which came out looking nice but the minted peas skipped the heating process altogether and the chips wernt much warmer. My mother ordered a vege option which was a tarte tatin with onions, almonds and parmesan which turned up as what can only be...

Thank you for your feedback - I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. I have looked over the menu and i'm wondering if you may have been mis-charged... my calculations are more in the region of £27. If you have a receipt or are in the local area please come back so we can sort this out. kind regards Becca

Enjoyed lunch here with friends at the weekend. It was buzzing. Lots of lovely nooks and crannies in this old building, with a variety of places to sit. Wonderful atmosphere. The menu had lots of choice. Food was delicious especially as we were able to enjoy it in the sunshine of the rear garden. Beautiful setting with lots of tables/chairs/umbrellas...

We were visiting relatives in Minehead and they took us for lunch at the Luttrell Arms, I am so glad they did. I had the best fish cakes ever, the food was lovely... very fine dining. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. We will certainly go back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Luttrell Arms is a 3 star, 28 room hotel. Set in the medieval village of Dunster with its many interesting buildings, under the shadow of the Castle and within the Exmoor National Park. The privately owned 14th century Luttrell Arms is surrounded by beautiful countryside making it the ideal destination for that weekend break or midweek getaway. Stroll around the village, walk the moor, or just sit by a log fire in a building where hospitality has been a way of life for hundreds of years. Heritage "If you could bottle the air in the bar at the Luttrell Arms and sell it you'd clean up" so wrote a local journalist. The smell of logs burning on the fire, a hint of hops from the pints of ale, add to this the smell of something aromatic being cooked in the kitchen, and the most essential element - the smell of history, it oozes out of the walls which have stood for 800 years. There are many outstanding architectural features, the medieval hall with its hammer beam roof (room 17) and twelve light window. History seeps out of the blackened frames, which had their glass rattled loose as Cromwell’s gunners laid siege to Dunster Castle from a defended strong point at the end of the garden. Cromwell’s Commander, Col. Robert Blake walked the corridors of the hotel, it was then called the Ship Inn and was used as his headquarters throughout the siege of the castle. Also of note is some very fine plasterwork on the ceiling of the lounge downstairs, and the plaster over mantle in room 12, showing Actaeon being devoured by hounds. The Arms of Luttrell that we use today carry us back to a Gentleman of 1261, the crest takes us only back to 1621, but the supporters are directly derived from one of the Barons who coerced King John into sealing Magna Carta. A more modern visitor is Hercule Poirot. In "The Cornish Mystery" he confronts the murderer in one of the hotel’s bedrooms. ... more   less
