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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

This is our second visit to The Howard Arms and it was just a good as the first. The service was efficient and friendly with the food being of a very high standard. The atmosphere is as you would expect form a very charming Cotswold stone Inn in the Cotswold Hills. Looking forward to my next visit 28th February, bring it on!!

Just a wee bit quiet on a Friday lunchtime re atmosphere but on the other hand totally relaxed dining experience. Our friends first visit and they loved the food. Great cheeseboard. Never had a bad meal at the Howard Arms!

Beef was fantastic! the veg and roast potatoes were to die for but a bigger amount between three of us would have nice. The deserts were fantastic. Many thanks
