The Flying Fish Stables Information


The Flying Fish is a country pub with separate accommodation known as The Stables, offering 8 very spacious, well-equipped, en-suite rooms with parking right outside, popular with both business and leisure travellers alike. We also have a stunning wedding barn. Located in the beautiful county of Somerset, 4 miles from the charming town of Ilminster and 10 miles from Taunton, The Flying Fish enjoys an enviable, elevated and peaceful position with stunning rural views across to The Blackdown Hills. We are easily accessed from the main travel routes of the A303, A358 and M5. All rooms have complimentary WiFi, Smart TVs, tea/coffee making facilities, bottled water, wardrobes, hairdryers, a writing desk, 2 chairs, a table and very comfortable beds. The modern bathrooms have baths and separate walk-in showers (accessible rooms do not have baths), heated towel rails and complimentary shower gel. We are family and pet-friendly. The Flying Fish breakfast, with its choice of offerings, freshly prepared, will get your morning off to a great start, served in our cosy, country pub just next door. It is here we can offer you tasty meals 7 days a week. Our pub has a modern country feel with a conservatory and garden overlooking our amazing view. Our varied menu includes home-made classic pub dishes and authentic Caribbean specialities. We serve a range of local draft ales and ciders as well as a fine selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks. Whether stopping overnight en-route elsewhere, staying for a few days to explore the many attractions this area has to offer, or getting married in our wedding barn, The Flying Fish is the perfect place to stop and pause awhile. Family owned and operated by Husband and Wife, Buddy and Kate, since January 2018, whatever the reason for your visit, you will receive the personal touch from us and our team as we believe in treating our guests like family. Why stay anywhere else when you can stay at The Flying Fish?!
