Staying in Ilminster on our way South. Chose the Dolphin for an evening meal as menu prices looks good. In the end we both chose from the specials board. Belly pork and trout. Both really good and veggies well cooked. Nice welcoming staff. Thanks.

We enjoyed a nice lunch at a very reasonable price. Our 2 dogs were welcomed in the bar area which was a bonus. Friendly staff too. Look forward to a return visit the next time we are in the area.

Would not provide our child with tap water because the staff said it was "cloudy". So are the salads safe?
