The Hood Arms is an historic 17th Century coaching inn situated in the village of Kilve on the edge of the Quantock Hills. The inn is steeped in history being on the route of the Coleridge Way and close to the Jurassic coastline and beaches of Somerset halfway between Bridgwater and Minehead and very accessible for Taunton or as a base to explore Exmoor. Our newly refurbished accommodation is superbly appointed and features a number of superking king double and twin rooms. Our menu features fresh locally sourced seasonal produce and we have a different Specials board every day. br / br / br / br / For our business guests we are a short drive along the coast from the new Hinkley Point C development and can provide you with a comfortable home from home whilst you are working in the area. br / br / br / br / The Hood Arms has a long rich history with an Inn being recorded on the site as far back as 1689 the year that William and Mary replaced James II as co-monarchs of England. br / br / br / br / The inn was originally called the Chough & Anchor but by 1832 it had been renamed The Hood Arms although the original pub sign was retained and is still used to this day the chough and anchor being the crest of the local landowners the Acland-Hood family of St Audries. By the end of the 1830 s the pub was flourishing and stables were added in 1839 to attract the growing coaching trade travelling along the Nether Stowey to Minehead turnpike. br / br / br / br / The classic layout of the Hood Arms remains largely unchanged since 1736 and its easy to relax by the open fire with a pint of Cider or Real Ale and imagine those times when Kilve was a centre for smuggling along the Bristol Channel coast with Brandy and illicit goods stored the Chantry situated behind the Hood Arms in Sea Lane or you might have shared a tall tale with Coleridge or Wordsworth as they enjoyed a hearty meal in the pub. br / br / br / br / Pleasse note if you d prefer to book directly with us please contact us via our website by email or telephone us on 01278 741114
