Wednesday to Sunday 11am - 11pm




"A memorable pub with rooms in a gorgeous, sleepy Somerset village. Come for the cosy, civilised and immensely characterful eating and drinking areas, the excellent food, the charming and stylish bedrooms and the lovely garden. It’s great value too…9/10"
Sunday Telegraph
"There’s a lavender-edged boule piste where a hammock sways and herbs are grown for the kitchen, while a wild-flower meadow with paths running through under a mistletoe-covered apple tree provide the perfect opportunity to while away the hours with a jug of fruit-filled Pimms"
The Guardian
"And now I am afraid that there is even more reason to clog up the A303 on that stretch: a fourth (or is it a fifth?) site from the boys, in the shape of the Lord Poulett Arms, about an hour and ten southwest of the henge, in lovely Hinton St George."
Giles Coren

Established in 1680, The Lord Poulett Arms is a traditional yet stylish thatched pub, located in the heart of the historic Somerset village of Hinton Saint George, two hours from London and thirty-five minutes from Lyme Regis. The pub has a main bar stocked with fine local ales, further dining rooms serve unpretentious food and beautiful gardens with seating and a petanque piste for the warmer months. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, and two smaller bedrooms with bathrooms across the corridor as well a large loft room.


From the publican to reservations our team are the beating heart of The Lord Poulett. Take the time to get to know the many faces behind notepad, bar and kitchen door. Find commonality and spark a conversation the next time you visit us. 

/ Head Chef
Can you have too much passion for great food? Richie keeps exceeding what is normal. Beavering away in the kitchen at all hours - but happy to chat outside about all things food, just don't get him started about his biltong recipe.
/ Landlord
Jon spent many years managing craft beer bars in Beijing. Now returned to his native Somerset, Jon is Landlord extraordinaire here at The Pub and you will never fail to miss him - just look for a shiny paisley shirt.
/ Breakfast Queen
An absolute pro at juggling being a mum and serving our breakfasts and lunches, always with the friendliest smile. Zoe is the person to go for local recommendations.
/ Host
Jess is one of our wonderful hosts and also our social media queen. When you come in you might find her taking a snap of our cosy fire or our new dishes - Jess is as hard working and friendly as they come.
/ Head Host
Meg started as one of our lovely waitresses and has worked her way up to Head Host. Her determination and ambition at work are matched by her adoration of dogs and cheese outside The Pub.
