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.
Our first visit but certainly won't be our last. Lovely room, excellent food and friendly pleasant staff added to our enjoyable break.
Loved our stay very relaxing.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening of great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely be back soon.
Nice atmosphere and a good welcome. Lovely to see a roaring fire on a chilly day too. Food was good and plentiful. We will certainly return at sometime.
Warmed smoked salmon starter was dry and unimaginative, sirloin main was acceptable but once again not at the level I would expect, the salad garnish was a few leaves dropped on the plate with a dressing. On a positive note both puddings were great! Come on Howard, please try harder.
We are regular visitors to The Howard Arms and have never been disappointed in any way. We live some distance away and would not make the journey if we were not very pleased with the first class food and drink and service. We'll be back soon!
A very attractive pub with a welcoming log fire for a cold day. The food was delicious although a tad slow in coming.
Great food, great meal, great place. Plenty of options on the Sunday menu- really enjoyed the goats cheese main course, very different and great flavours. Everyone had nothing but good words to say. We will definitely be returning.
Absolutely delicious food, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, warm welcome .....
Lovely Mothers Day lunch. Great menu. Delicious food. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Thoughtful decor and I wish we had this Inn in our village in Oxford. The pub was an hours drive for us and well worth it. The best Haddock ever! Proper open fires and dog friendly....all in all the perfect Inn experience. Well done! Will revisit in summer.
Excellent food and service and tasteful refurbishment of restaurant.
Excellent food and beer once again from the Howard Arms. The only slight criticism I can muster is that the pheasant and venison casserole was a lot of meat and by contrast the vegetable portion was small. Also if you book on-line, I don't think you are given the choice of bar or restaurant.
No faults had lunch and dinner as we were on holiday would recommend.Very good
Our table was right next to the service station and that did put one of our guests off. Service was a little slow and on one occasion the waitress forgot our drinks order, but I have yet to find any pub in the area that is perfect on every count. We will dine here again as overall we had a good experience and the food was fresh and well cooked so the kitchen did a great job.
Excellent food, very good service and a very pleasant atmosphere. Staff were very keen to accommodate our specific meal requests. Highly recommended and we will be visiting again!
Staff were very attentive and helpful. The only negative feedback would be to offer a children's menu and also a few people in the party could have done with a side salad or some vegetables as their mains were a bit on the small side.
Your staff were nothing but welcoming, friendly, courteous and very professional. Excellent meal, excellent night, thank you.
By booking we had a lovely table in the window and all was very attractive.
Enjoyed our meal, shame we didn't find you until the end our holiday.
picturesquely sited in an attractive village
A lovely meal - would come again.
Lovely food, nice wine! thank you x
Very friendly efficient service. Good variety of food and lovely setting.We've visited before and are likely to come again.
My husband and I had a wonderful evening on Valentines Day. The meal was excellent and the atmosphere great. The staff were attentive and friendly. Highly recommend/
