Description: 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!

“Very good Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were shopping in Yeovil (we live near Chard) and we decided spontaneously to try and find a Sunday lunch. One of our friends had recommended the Pen Mill so I called the pub and they managed to fit us in at short notice. It was a grey, drizzly day but the pub was warm and welcoming and we were shown to our table in a very nice spot.
The carvery was truly excellent and also very good value. With friendly and efficient staff, good food and a nice atmosphere, this pub is hard to fault. I next intend to try an evening meal here.

Firstly may I apologise for the great delay in responding to your very kind review. Unfortunately we have been given 2 Trip Advisor accounts (one for the hotel and one for the restaurant) and this account (restaurant) would not let us respond to customer's reviews but all fixed now!!!!

Many thanks for your kind words, If my memory serves me correctly you sat on Table 16 in front of the bar (but I maybe wrong!)

We try our hardest in these tough times, that are starting to get a little easier, and hopefully get it right for customer's like yourselves.

I hope by now you may have tried us for evening service but if not hope to see you again in the near future?

Kind regards

Jon Palmer

“Yum Yeovil Carvery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Popped into the Pen mIll for a late Sunday lunch and was very pleasantly surprised that bnot only were they still doing lunch post-2pm but also that it was well presented and fresh. Our greeting was superb and we were quickly shown to our table.
Its a family and dog friendly pub with a great wine selection and a smily landlord.Couldnt ask for more.

“Lovely Sunday Lunch Carvery and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely Sunday carvery lunch. Food was well cooked and other meals ordered from menu were equally as good. Despite being very busy staff were welcoming and friendly and really helpful. We were a party of 6 all with different diets and tastes but nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money.

We waited nearly an hour for our food even though we had booked, service was poor no attention to detail, when we asked for bread for the table we were given two pieces for ten people!

“Great Find, Good Value For Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Having always drove past this Hotel, we thought we'd stop off for a drink as it was so hot. Inside was very spacious and nice modern seating, this was also a dog friendly pub which was nice to see. There was also numerous seating arrangements outside, Having browsed through the lunchtime menu we decided to opt for the jacket potatoe range which was absolutely fantastic, my mum had camembert and bacon with side salad and coleslaw, and I opted for the good old slimming world favourite cheese and beans with side salad.

The staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble.

So a big thumbs up to The Pen Mill !!!
