The Kildare Lodge Hotel & Restaurant is located at the 'Gateway to Exmoor National Park' in the lovely coastal town of Minehead. Steeped in history, the Kildare Lodge is  a grade 2* listed building, designed by Barry Parker under the influence of the famous Victorian architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and is one of only a few buildings of this style to be open to the public as a hotel. 

The Kildare Lodge is​ owned and run by husband and wife team Harvey and Sarah Pyle and whilst a warm welcome, excellent home cooked food and comfortable,  affordable accommodation   awaits you, it is the Real Ale that sets the Kildare Lodge apart from its neighbours.


A well established member of CAMRA®, all beers are lovingly tended in person by Harvey who prides himself on offering a wide range of guest beers in addition to his carefully selected resident ales, ciders and lagers. The jewels in the  Kildare crown however, are the Kildare Lodge  Beer Festivals which are held twice a year.

A warm welcome awaits your 4-legged friends too!
