Welcome to The Phelips Arms

...And welcome to our website!


Set in the peaceful and picturesque hamstone village of Montacute, a 5 minute drive off the A303, The Phelips Arms is a 17th century pub full of character and charm. At the heart of the community, we have lots of events each month including live music, cocktails night, book club, bingo and more!

We serve delicious home-cooked traditional pub fayre at reasonable prices, as well as Palmers fine ales, Thatchers Gold and a selection of lagers, wines and soft drinks. Comfortable seating inside with a warm, cosy fire lit in the winter or enjoy sitting in our beautiful beer garden in the summer. We also have a private function room, skittle alley and pool table!

Offering accommodation upstairs in several lovely rooms, The Phelips Arms makes a great base for exploring the area and its many attractions, from the Elizabethan splendour of Montacute House to the high octane attractions of the Haynes International Motor Museum.

We'd love to welcome you to The Phelips Arms in person. We hope you’ll come and visit us soon for a relaxing drink, a lovely home-cooked meal, an overnight stay – or all three!
