About The Howard Arms

On the picturesque village green of Ilimington, set in the crook of the Cotswold Hills, lies The Howard Arms, a stunning, 400-year-old Cotswold stone inn.

The stylish pub and dining room provide the ideal backdrop for an appealing mix of old furniture, broad polished flagstones and a log fire that burns for most of the year.

We visited for Sunday Lunch, the food and service could not be faulted and would definitely return in the future! The staff were very friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere as you’d expect from a country pub :)

The Howard Arms is just what you would hope for in a Cotswold Country Pub, lovely open fire, flagstone floors and beautiful Cotswold stone. Our meal was really delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We also stayed the night which made it a great weekend. Our room was very spacious and comfortable too and breakfast was excellent so I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

We have been back to the Howard Arms many times as we enjoy the comfortable rooms and cosy atmosphere, and the food is very good. There could have been a bit more choice this time.

This was our third but to the Howard Arms, including a superb Xmas lunch visit. All three times we’ve eaten there, we’ve been extremely pleased with all aspects of the food, wine, friendly staff and service and the wonderful atmosphere in the pub.

We always receive excellent service at the Howard Arms, and the food is always first rate. The only minor criticism (and this is not solely levelled at the Howard Arms but at a number of Gastro Pubs) is that it would be better to include vegetables with mains rather than having them as a side or optional additional item. At the very least make it more obvious on the menu that such vegetables are not included with the main. Other than that cant fault the place!

It’s a while since I visited The Howard Arms for various reasons, largely because it is further away from home and my regular ‘locals’. However, I shall now be coming back again very soon. My roast beef from Barry the Butcher was the best I have tasted anywhere, served perfectly pink, and my partner’s fish was equally good. The service was friendly and efficient, the country pub atmosphere very pleasantly relaxed and, to top it all, Timothy Taylor was on offer in the bar - always a good sign. It doesn’t get any better!

Spot on. Super food, service and value. I took four of us for a seven pm 'Sunday lunch,' and the dinner ran like clockwork. Excellent food served by charming staff who gave us just the right amount of attention. The bill was a pleasant surprise and I left a decent tip. I'm fussy about restaurants but can thoroughly recommend the Howard Arms.

Have given 5 star for food as evening meal was lovely. However I do think that breakfast needs tweeking! Asked for runny porridge first morning but it was still thick and quite stodgy and not hot enough. Husband's full english had issues too including not warm enough. And I didn't like the fact that the jars holding jams/marmalade were all sticky to the touch. Making it difficult to serve yourself. All this said, though, we did enjoy our stay and Ilmington is a lovely village.
