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!

Called in on spec one lunchtime recently and although it's hard to find any significant negatives, it's equally difficult to find any significant positives either. The atmosphere was a little flat despite there being several in the dining area, the food was OK and the prices again pretty much par for the course. So....as this reviews title suggests, acceptable, nothing... More

We visited yesterday for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Three of us had lobster / crab burgers and I had chicken enchilladas which quite spicy. Overall the food was very good for pub grub and the service was very good and quick. We would certainly visit again. We cannot comment about the accommodation although the hotel looked quite nice.

My wife and I popped in here at 6 this evening for a bite to eat. The carvery was still on so we gave it a go. Only 2 meats were still on. I guess that's ok as it was late. Was wasn't ok was the fact that the potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were dried out and inedible. The deserts... More

We were greeted warmly by the gentleman owner and quickly found a table despite it being busy and have not booked. The choice of meats was good and there was every accompaniment and side we could have wished for. All served by a very polite young woman. All staff were smiley and helpful and the food was delicious. Ticked every... More

Had a lovely meal at Pen Mill, all the staff were pleasant and very helpful. The pub has recently been refurbished and everything looked great - rooms looked beautiful - will definitely come back and stay. The roast was the best carvery I've tasted.

I've been visiting the Pen Mill for a number of years and never had a single bad experience. The food is better than the average pub food, the menus are extensive and you can always be guaranteed of a meal no matter what time in the day you turn up. The owners' customer service is second to none and they... More

The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the food won't impress anybody and the price was exactly the same as every other place in the vicinity. Sunday roast and a drink for £14 though there were only dry scraps of pork on offer so I opted for the Turkey. Be careful if travelling there by car as there are entrances on... More

We were shopping in Yeovil (we live near Chard) and we decided spontaneously to try and find a Sunday lunch.
