West Midland Tourism Awards

The Howard Arms is a glorious Cotswold pub, restaurant and bed & breakfast. Peacefully overlooking the old chestnut tree on the green, it lies in the heart of the idyllic village of Ilmington. Inside, the fire crackles and the bar bustles with locals and visitors drinking from our carefully chosen selection of ales, beers and wine. Our award-winning chef has created a menu of top-quality pub favourites alongside imaginative starters, mains and irresistible puddings. There are 8 spoiling bedrooms, full of comfort and character with a hearty breakfast included in the price. The atmosphere is warm and easy-going, and the staff are renowned for their friendliness and efficiency.

Built during Shakespeare’s time, if the bard were still around, you would find him with the locals in the Howard Arms.
