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.

A warm and friendly atmosphere, with amazing staff. This wasn't our first visit and the experience was consistent with previous occasions. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

The Publican is amazing. He makes you feel so welcome every time we go. The Sunday roasts are the best in the area and is excellent value for money as well. Our waitress was equally cheerful and looked after us extremely well.

The vegetarian mushroom stack was quite a small portion compared to all the other main courses. Other than that, the food and service was exemplary.

Been for drinks before but this was first time for a meal. Really nice experience, especially since we were hosting overseas visitors! Not sure if it was because it was a fairly quiet night, but service was very good.

Excellent service and food, bar one minus which was under-cooked potato in the fish chowder hence 4 stars on this occasion.

A very high quality of food and drink, as we have experienced over a number of years, but service - at least towards the end of the meal - was not as good as we have been used to receiving. This may have been because we were at a table tucked away by the fireplace!

Really enjoyable. Beautiful village and lovely restaurant - moved from being placed at tables at back ( too small for me.) But your restaurant area is fabulous. Loved your young local new waiter. He was genuine and not generic. Fabulous flowers and really good wine at a decent price. It was really good.

Atmosphere and service were fine, as were bread and dips and a really excellent cheeseboard. The starters (asparagus wrapped in ham) were too dry and, for a main course, the bass fillet was overcooked and far too small a portion for the price. Wine list was okay but, for anything other than a house wine, was very expensive compared to wider and better selections we've enjoyed elsewhere locally at the more upmarket restaurants in Stratford-upon-Avon. We paid more than £100 (including discretionary service) for an average meal for two, which was disappointing. We've eaten here many times in the past and felt that food choice and quality was nowhere near as good on this occasion, which is a shame as we like the venue.

We both had a wonderful meal, excellent service and delicious food. Shame there is not enough rooms for our annual family get together.
