Lovely food in a quiet, unknown location

The food and range of drinks on offer at The Lanes is substantial and varied. All at a good price and not over the top! Can highly recommend the modules et Frits, but the main star of the show is the desserts. These are amazing, so worthy of trying. Excellent and attentive service without... read more

First impressions were great, a mixture of country house meets jazz age Service from the bar was excellent with a bar tender who really knows his cocktails I was disappointed though with the portion size in the restaurant - tiny is not the right word and everything was drenched in salt A couple I met in the bar told me...

Very good cream tea. Good selection of cakes sandwiches and the scones were delicious and fresh. Would be good if you could have more sandwiches and less cakes or certainly the option . Recommended to many.

business lunch today. The food was excellent, really fresh and tasty. The ambience was lovely as well. Really good value, £64 for 4 without wine. Definitely recommend it.

I was staying local in Yeovil so did the usual hunt online for somewhere good to eat and this place turned up. Initially I thought wow, a modernised building with great architecture almost in the middle of know where. We had a mid week dinner so wasn't too crowded, lots of room between tables so lots of open space. The... More

I booked Lanes for a works Christmas meal, there were 20 of us, it was really good for the fact that booking was so easy, they didn,t want a deposit and were really hospitable and friendly. The welcome we received was really nice and the room was beautiful, one of the nicest places we have been as a group. The... More

Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy but our service was excellent and we were well looked after. It was a shame about the food, the starters were very good and so it all augured well for the main course - my husbands mullet was dry and our monkfish very tough, almost inedible. We were not charge for this... More

Sometimes it's OK whilst at other times, I say I'm not coming back.Very good location. Splendid building standing in very attractive grounds. Prices are mid to high for the standard & quality provided.

We were a party of four for an early Sunday lunch. Our first visit and thought the ambiance was very pleasant - light and spacious (and warm, important on a cold day) The staff were welcoming and efficient, as others have said, and we were able to take our time over the meal. Limited menu, but all well cooked and... More
