Ilminster is an attractive market town. The Shrubbery Hotel stands on a site previously occupied by a private house named, 'Crosses' which dated back to the 17th century. Apparently, cloth dyeing took place on the premises.

In the 1850s the property was purchased by the local Shepherd family, who built an imposing Victorian house around the original building. The family, allegedly, made their fortune from selling hessian and jute to both sides in the American Civil War and their wealth enabled them to become major landowners and benefactors to the town.

The premises were converted into an hotel in 1932.
