“Food OK. Service and attitude abismal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are better places to eat near Yeovil such as the Ilchester Arms or the Masons Arms in Lower Odcombe. What lets it down is the attitude of the manager, specifically towards diners with children, however well-behaved. He made me feel extremely humiliated and I will never go back.

“Beautiful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

This pub is always a delight food wise, however they really need to work on their hosting skills. The management in particular are very arrogant and not too helpful or welcoming. Its as if they know they will fill our seats, so if we dont like it... its tough! Really want to go again but this fact is holding me back. The seating is very cramped.

“Very poor customer experience!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Being a frequent visitor to The Half Moon Inn, we decided to go for a meal for my friends birthday, whikst I am not denying the food is beautiful, the service from the manager and owner on the night we visited was disgusting, They seriously need to review there service arrangements, eg: table service, seating, considering 90% of there trade comes from food.

One of the bests in Yeovil area! Very nice place, with lots of tables in small and cosy corners, scattered by the pub. Excellent food,with a huge menu to choose from. Recommend!

“Only good thing about Yeovil”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Delicious food. Lots to choose from.
HUGE portions.

Lovely low ceilings with beams.

Wouldn't describe it as romantic and whilst kids enjoyed it, I don't know that I'd rate utility as family friendly either.
