We visited here with some friends who are very local/regulars to this pub, and it was amazing. Great food, great beer, great staff. It's also dog friendly!

I absolutely love this place ! The food is unbelievable and the staff are just so lovely ! I came recently for a breakfast which was to die for without a doubt the best in Yeovil.

Visited last weekend with my work colleagues. My fish and chips was basically just a pile of grease on my plate. For pudding I had pancakes which would of been perfect if it didn't have the dry powder all over it which ruined it for me. I not only that but the bar area smelt of toilets which was very... More

I have checked with every member of staff who worked the weekend you visited & not one of them can recall you complaining to them about your terrible meal experience. I know that I would certainly complained if my meal was 'basically just a pile of grease', am I right in assuming that didn't eat the meal? or you at... More

Thank you so much for reviewing the Pen Mill Hotel so long after your meal. I mean that with true sincerity. A five star review, five or six weeks after a meal, really is a meal that stands out. Thank you. I really look forward to seeing you again soon, remember the Pen Mill is not just for Christmas!!!! :)... More

I stopped here whilst on business. The hotel is right on the side of the main road and at present there are long term roadworks outside so this makes for quite a bit of traffic noise in the room. The hotel is very clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was not massive... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Pen Mill. Sarah and I really do appreciate it. I'm sorry you had to share your room with a dozen ladybirds (I assume they were of the beatle variety! Lol). This has been sometimes known in the summer but, I don't think in the middle of winter. I have... More

I had read the poor reviews but liked the managements responses so much that we just had to go back and compliment them. Absolutely right in one reply when he says don't walk out hide behind a bad review, if you have a genuine gripe raise it at the time. This is now our third visit, but our first Sunday... More

Thank you so much for your four star review of the Pen Mill. I'm truly am sorry to hear that you felt there was not much veg, seven fresh vegetables for most people is generally enough to choose from. A carvery is never going to be a meal that is piping hot. It is obviously not served straight from the... More

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!
