Sunday Lunch

After a successful meal as one of a group of 22, I returned with my husband. We were not disappointed. Friendly unintrusive staff, warm cosy dining room and delicious food, plus somewhere to sit with coffee after our meal. We will return again soon. Excellent value for money.

Having stayed at Northover on a previous occasion, I had expected better. We arrived mid afternoon and parked in the crowded car park (busy I believe with lunch trade) noticing broken wine glasses which were obviously from an earlier function as there was still evidence of red wine in them. This, whilst being quite obvious to us had not been... More

We were a nightmare group booked in for a whole family meal - babies, children, parents and grandparents all for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday and we arrived later than we said originally. Could have been a disaster! but no, thanks to everyone working at the Northover Manor. Our table was for us exclusively all evening so no... More

I sometimes find it difficult to order what's not on the menu. Tonight the Chef exceled himself by allowing me a couple of fried eggs on top of my steak, in preference to the normal sauces. What came before me can only be described as a mouth watering culinary triumph. The egg yolks trickling over the steak, that was cooked... More

This small restaurant attached to an Inn is where I first had risotto 10 years ago. I've been obsessed ever since. Last week I was able to return and the food is as magnificent as I remember. As it is small, you'll need a reservation. They're often so busy they'll take your order while you wait at the bar so... More

Celebrating Hubbys 80th birthday with family and friends, what a lovely evening , staff so attentive and friendly, the food was out of this world, beautifully presented, lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Whether it is for a special occasion or not you will never be dissappointed with this place. Can't wait to go back

Good menu, although couple of items not available. Food well presented, served efficiently by friendly staff. Shame no Chablis left but the prosecco provided adequate lubrication.

Booked this hotel online as a stopover on route back from Dorset Steam Fair. First impressions were good as carpark and frontage were clean and tidy. We were not disappointed, friendly welcome form the owner on reception and shown to our room which was impeccably clean and well furnished and decorated. After showering we ventured to the bar and were... More

Expensive but very nice food. Moreover, I was treated to a free round of golf as well. Now how often can you go out, have an excellent meal and be given a free game of golf at Yeovil Golf Club?

Ate here two nights in a row while staying at the hotel and was highly impressed. The quality of produce, presentation, and taste were all outstanding. When combined with the excellent staff and value for money it is foolish not to give it a try. Will definitely be eating here again.
