Stopped for lunch on probably the hottest day of the year so far !! Chose to sit outside for this reason ( we love the sun ) It was our fault that after siting here we noticed how busy and noisy the road was, but this is not the fault of the pub.. so stuck it out... and the flower... More

Firstly I want to say that my review is only based on the carvery. I was visiting Yeovil for the first time in 40 years, having lived there as a teenager, so had no idea where to eat but having checked out Trip Advisor and it being a Sunday, my friend and I fancied a roast, so decided on this...

This pub and hotel can so easily be missed driving by. Don't! The food is great and a bonus that it is served all day. Even the vegetarian curry is very nice. There is a terrace outside and plenty of room inside. Service is friendly and efficient.

Haven't been here for years and in that time it's had a makeover and very good it is too. Went with my special needs son and the staff made us very welcome, helping to store his wheelchair for us. We shared lunch which whilst not outstanding was good and plenty of it.

Have previously been impressed by two earlier lunches here, but very disappointed today. Table booked for eight at 12.30pm. We arrived promptly and found our reserved table but no sign of attention from any waiting staff so we got our own drinks at the bar. Then waited 10 mins before menu offered. Then a further 15 mins before order taken... More

Spent a long weekend here. Excellent rooms at least 5 star. Classically decorated as befits this elderly lady of a building. Staff friendly and helpful. Manager very engaging, genuinely cares about his customers in the restaurant and bar, as well as the overnight guests. The daytime/evening menu varied and quality of food first class, this is reflected in the number... More

The first thing I wanted to write when I read this review was a cliché that I loathe and that's, OMG but OMG!!!!! I'm so sorry but it's the only thing that keeps coming to mind. I'm now self loathing! :) This must go up into my top 5 five reviews, especially, because it mentions me! It is most certainly... More

We've had three meals here, first meal was beyond expectation. Second and third leave a little to be desired. Maybe the chef changed as we ordered the same food it just wasn't the same quality as the first time - maybe I'm being picky? The feel of the restaurant is lovely no rushing to eat food I expect the hotel... More

We've eaten here a few times before and yet again have enjoyed a tasty roast lunch. My husband always seems to manage missing the week when roast pork is on the menu. There's a choice of three meats and a good selection of vegetables. I love their roasties and roast parsnips. Yummy. Two of us are vegetarian and it's great... More

I recognise the family here I think? I do believe you reviewed the Pen Mill earlier in the year if my memory serves me correctly? I'm so pleased you continue to enjoy your carveries with us. Even throughout the summer months, our popularity has not slowed down! We now offer a Falafel Slice as an option on the vegetarian carvery... More

The Pen Mill Hotel is a well established business in the area that for the past 13 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!
