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!

Visited for lunch on February 3rd. We always pop in for lunch when we are in the area and are never disappointed. All our meals have been very very nice - thank you! We missed the dogs - hope they enjoyed their holiday!

I popped into the Pen Mill pub in order to have a roast , & , as usual, I was met with a very warm welcome today.

Last week I stopped here to see if they could cater for my coeliac son, to be told yes he could have sausages which are his favourite amongst other things. I then booked a table for tonight as a treat for his 6th birthday, luckily before ordering I double checked he could have the sausages only to be told he... More

I'm sorry that you were not satisfied with your visit to us last week. I was, amongst others, one of the people who dealt with this matter (talking with your mother). As I'm sure you're finding out fast with your young son who sadly suffers from coeliac disease, changes in the food industry are a daily occurrence! We actually offer... More

The owners are welcoming and friendly and the food and rooms are excellent, The bar and restaurant are open from 10.00 am till late. Large car park means no walking and Penn Mill railway station nearby allows a trip from Dorchester or Bristol and means no driving after a good night out

A short review, yet, precise and to the point apart from......... we're open from 9am Monday to Saturday (we don't serve alcohol until 10am)! Many thanks for a wonderful review of my business, being a local person I sincerely hope to see you again very soon. Kindest regards Jon Palmer Owner More

And friend and I popped in for lunch on a week day. We were plea entry surprised by the menu choices and the option of a lunch menu at a reduced cost. We had 2 courses and left feeling comfortably full. The pen mill had a nice relaxed atmosphere, and a lovely Christmas tree outside! Definitely will pop back when... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review on the Pen Mill. I'm so please that you enjoyed your lunchtime visit. Judging by your comments I'm assuming you had our Two Course Lunch for £10.95? This is extraordinarily popular menu. Sadly the Christmas tree has now gone as it was a great talking point however, the daffodils and... More

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'm saddened you feel you did not receive value for money, good service and didn't feel the usually vibrant atmosphere that most people do enjoy. I am glad to see that the food you received enjoyed having rated it a 4/5. So, I'd better start by going through your long list of complaints one at a time. Point one. '3... 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!

I'm so glad you thoroughly enjoyed your carvery with us back in December. I think I can quite safely say we are Yeovil's favourite venue for Sunday carvery and, like you say....... 'Served with a smile!' I look forward to welcoming you back to us soon. Kindest regards Jon Palmer Owner More
