"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. 

/ Host
A slight deviation from studying for her masters led her to our door with Janos her partner in the kitchen. The personification of delightfulness. Caring, warm and always keen to help, a hospitality natural.
/ Sous Chef
A bloke's bloke but don't let that fool anyone. An artist in the kitchen with delicate touch and a magician when it comes to curries and spice mixtures. Passionate about street food and a burger aficionado. When not at work he is the perfect dad of a new baby.
/ Bar Person
Before going to university, Harry caught the hospitality bug and the bar at Lord Poulett is now his fiefdom. Loves any sport, (ask him anything about football if you have a few hours) and likes a piece of snappy clothing, always looking the part.
/ Chef
Phil cares (sometime too much) about every single plate of food that comes out of his kitchen. A family man at heart, with a dedication to pub food cooking that is rarely seen. Charming, considered & creative he is the heart and soul of the building.
/ Publican
Abbie is our new publican, landlady, all round host and queen of The Lord Poulett. Equally happy chatting at the bar as carefully writing staff rotas, actually only happy chatting at the bar.
/ General Dogsbody
A lifetime of hospitality experience and he insists on cleaning the loos and doing the washing up. Best subject to talk about is Elsa (his dog) or classic cars.
