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!

We recently returned from a two night stay in the town and after reading some of the reviews on the various eating establishments thereabouts booked a table for the Friday night here.

Excellent service. We four senior citizens (I hate the term OAP's) were treated with genuine respect and helpfulness by the staff. The food was really good. I had the steak pie and it was the best I have had for many a year. The beer was well kept and my only gripe is as usual the high price of drinks.... More

We thought January was going to be a quieter month for us here at the Pen Mill, a time to recharge our batteries and prepare for another busy year ahead!

Had really great food in this hotel over Christmas, how ever bar full of dogs, I did not want to go to the toilet as you have to go past dogs at the bar and sitting at tables. Not nice in a food area. Shame because it was nice to find good food and professional staff.
