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 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.
Always a very warm welcome and delicious food. Such a beautiful village.
Reliable as ever, good food, cosy pub atmosphere and great service
Top venue. Excellent food. Lovely ambience.
Myself and my wife have been using the Howard Arms for over 25years and we keep going back itticks all the boxes and are friends and family when we go there says the same
As always, the Howard Arms is exemplary in every aspect. Love it!
Happy atmosphere, excellent service and beautifully cooked food. Reliably consistent.
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.
Excellent as usual
Fantastic place - cant wait to return
We both had a wonderful meal, excellent service and delicious food. Shame there is not enough rooms for our annual family get together.
Always a perfect end to a weekend.
Beautiful food, friendly staff, great atmosphere, fabulous room. Would definitely return.
Amazing Ploughman’s - great quality and the pickles and chutneys were so delicious, obviously homemade and the attention to detail outstanding - if only you sold them by the jar! (But i’d Settle for the recipes!)
A great pub with friendly staff and good food.
Fantastic food and drink half way through a wonderful walk in the area. Staff were very welcoming and the dining area was lovely.
we really enjoyed our dinner there. very nice friendly staff, the food was delicious and just a nice cosy comfortable place to eat. it ticks all the boxes for myself and family.
always friendly and efficient
Excellent service and food
All that you could wish for in a local...
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.
Amazing, amazing, AMAZING! Two very happy customers who will return again and again. Fantastic staff, great food and a lovely place (the best fire we’ve seen!). Thank you
