RE-OPENING MONDAY 17TH MAY 2021!

If everyone behaives, it will happen!

AA Accredited - COVID-19 Confident
We are not a ‘fancy pants’ establishment. Not in the least. We offer good quality, home-cooked, locally sourced (where possible) food. 90% of our menu is made on the premises. Certainly not ‘Pub Grub’ but not ‘Gastro Pub’ either. It’s good value for money. However, our standards are high, very high. Not only in the quality of the food that comes into and leaves the kitchen but also in the presentation, the delivery to the table and overall customer service. We’re definitely not ‘Silver Service’ either but all of our staff are attentive, smartly dressed and will always go that extra mile wherever they can. These are just some of the reasons we were awarded the Taste of the West GOLD award in 2019.
We are a dog friendly establishment, very dog friendly. However, please tell us at the time of booking so that we can place you in our Bar area , as opposed to our Restaurant.

                            Decided to book in for a Sunday carvery on recommendation. It was a good decision! The carvery was delicious and the lady serving made it even better! Such a welcoming and friendly lady. The table service we had was also spot on. I would highly recommend a visit and we'll be visiting again.

                            We went for lunch with four of our friends who we only meet with about every three months and last time in July we met at the Pen Mill and they this time requested that we went there again yesterday. As always the service, friendliness and last but not least the food quality and value was next to none. The restaurant and pub is clean, fresh and always welcoming. It obviously comes from the top down to the staff etc and is impeccable in every way, well done the Proprietor.

                            My parents 70th wedding anniversary lunch. Being in their 90’s their appetites are not very large and the lunchtime menu with reduced chips suited them well. The service was very attentive, the food was hot and well cooked, what more could you want? A card to celebrate the occasion? Yes my parents got a card from the staff. Brilliant lunch, thank you.

                            Good pub food and seemed busy for a Sunday evening. Food hot whenever we have been there. Better to get an earlier time when going for carvery as meat has a tendency to dry under hot lights. Great range of vegetable dishes Sunday lunch.

                            Excellent service and the food was great too although I was surprised to see chunky peas not petit pois, it is obviously very popular as there were a ton of people there but luckily we got in just before a rush of customers. I don’t know how I would have felt about having to wait as long in line as some did as my mother and I both have mobility issues and can’t stand for long. But the crowds weren’t noisy and having them queue next to you eyeing up your dinner doesn’t bother me but its a real shame to have such an awkward layout with diners having to walk past every single table and back to fetch their food also the food layout is totally illogical with sauces being the second choice after meat,surely this is a last thing condiments choice? We did end up dancing around the veggies! The Yorkshire puds were to die for but there was a noticeable lack of greens,a broccoli, sprouts or cabbage would have been a nice touch rather than a Ratatouille maybe try to book earlier although at 3.45 we were nowhere near the end of service. I can’t praise our young waitress enough she was very quick and made sure we were catered to without being overbearing. Overall it was a very pleasant Sunday Carvery and I have eaten here with my mother before eating a la carte it was very nice indeed and the dessert menu for both is the same, they do an excellent Ameretto creme brulee with shortbread which I had last time and we all had this time. If I had a magic wand I would double the restaurant’s floor space but I am sure they think so too. Thank You for a lovely meal Pen Mill

                            Fabulous meats (Beef, turkey, gammon ham)very tasty & cooked perfectly. Roast potatoes very crispy but not too oily. Selection of approx 5 different veg again not over cooked with the added bonus of cauliflower cheese. Staff very polite & friendly, nice dinning atmosphere families welcomed. Table service for drinks, que for the carvery politely well managed not too many people at a time, felt very covid safe at all times, nice added touch of a bottle of hand gel at each table. Table service to offer puddings which sounded fabulous but unfortunately we were too full to try. Would definitely recommend and we will return again soon. Thank you for a great dining experience.

                            Excellent choices - we all ate from the £12 for 2 courses etc. The menu had some great choices and it was great value. The service was very good, pleasant attentive but not overwhelming. I guess due to COVID the doors were open which meant there was a chilly draft at times. But overall a very pleasurable lunch which we all enjoyed. I will certainly recommend and be back for more😁.

                            Menu ok. Food was nice and didn't have to wait long. Recommend reservation for seating inside as it is a popular pub. Staff friendly. In particular, I liked the fact that staff wore masks especially around food. Hand sanitiser on every table and toilets very clean. I wish all pubs had this level of good hygiene. Well done Penn Mill.
