Description: The Pen Mill Hotel is a well established business in the area that for the past 10 years under the same family ownership has been fast gaining a reputation for quality food and drink. Using local, independent suppliers wherever possible. In February 2014 we undertook an almost £200,000 refurbishment of the hotel bedrooms. This has now bought us above the local and indeed national average for quality in hotel rooms. Combine this with our ever popular bar and restaurant and you have a quality establishment that unlike many others has a personality with a family atmosphere!

Party of dozen paid £25 per head. Flash menu advertising 3 courses and coffee and mince pie along with disco . Bit alarmed upon booking had to pay £20 each deposit. Remainder of balance paid prior to the evening. Disco was in bar obviously a regular small bash for the regulars certainly not put on for the Xmas party goers.... More

I did a review for this fabulous place about six months ago and really rated it then. Been lucky enough to stay again several times since and I don't know how but it's actually even better! The food is still absolutely superb both evening and breakfast. The lovely lady who owns the hotel cooks the best full English that you'll... More

Visiting family in the area we phoned on the off chance we could get a booking on the same day for Sunday lunch. Sure enough a table was free so long as we were done by a certain time, which was fair enough. John was very friendly and helpful, and a friendly face on arrival. I'm not normally a massive... More

Thank you so much for such a detailed and appreciative review. Sunday lunch is certainly one of our busiest times of the week and I think I'd probably be correct in saying that we are probably Yeovil's most popular carvery establishment. Freshness is always an issue for some carveries but...... because we are so busy (doing in excess of 225... More

We were a family party, eight adults and a toddler. None of us had difficulty choosing from the lunch-time menu, the A La Carte menu, or the specials boards, and the food was enjoyed by all. The toddler sat in a high chair, and asked for 'chips, fish and beans'. He ate all his gigantic fish finger, and much of... More

Well I'm so glad you enjoyed visiting the Pen Mill, for such a terrible establishment you appear to have been a regular visitor for at least 5 months (from Christmas to April)! Or it could be the case that you have met a person that we barred (for non-payment of a tab and breaking of financial agreements) around April time... More

more of a pub and restaurant than a hotel but they haven't done a bad job with the hotel. Overall a pretty good stay, good size room, comfy bed, tea and biscuits, overall pretty clean but I did find a Spider on the lampshade, I wouldn't usually mind but the lampshade was at head height but above the bed so...

Wow! What an experience. We booked a table for 27 family members of 4 generations! There was something for everyone! An amazing selection of drinks and a huge amount of locally sourced and excellently cooked food for every palate!
