Called in on a Friday evening with friends and had a meal. Didn't book in advance. Staff flexible and friendly. Food was good value and we were all pleased with the quality. A wide selection of drinks available. Resturant area to one side. Traditional historic bar area which has a good feel.

Lived in Yeovil many years ago and the Mermaid could always be counted on for fab food. Knew nothing about the hotel side of things. Booked in for 4 people to stay (we had family already there ) Arrived approx 10pm and the bar was very busy. The gates to the car park were locked preventing us from parking. Luckily...

Wanted a late lunch a found The Mermaid. Good menu with plenty of choice. Food was served very quickly, nicely presented and hot. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A bit dark and basic in the bar area but we were asked if we wanted to eat in the restaurant. We will be returning when visiting Yeovil again.

Parking Upon arrival the immediate issue was parking. Having been told to park in the courtyard I was then told I will not be able to leave until 8am at the earliest. Loads of vehicles parked behind me. Appreciate that the parking is very limited, however parking on the street was around the corner, and I'd been told that the...

Nothing special but a nice enough room, big with an en-suite. The main problem was the pub downstairs - there was a very loud rock/metal covers band playing which, along with lots of well-lubricated people having loud conversations outside while smoking kept me awake until past midnight. Probably best to avoid at weekends, if you avoid the rock 'n' roll...

Room 2 - single en suite room. Was okay nothing special but the price was right. The room was tidy and clean, the bathroom could have benefited from a fixed shower. Breakfast was no available even during the alloted times

We stayed at the Mermaid for 7 days....the staff were wonderful, friendly, down to earth people. We were given great service every morning for breakfast, and they were very accommodating to our American tastes....so nice. The rooms were clean and neat...yes the building and an "old smell" but you would too if you were 400 years old now wouldn't you?....lol...

If you are after fine dining avoid this restaurant. If you are looking for a good quality carvery at a very good price then this is the place to be. Pub Decor is slightly tired, but I am more concerned about food. Special mention should go to Sam who was managing the restaurant today. Helpful above and beyond to all...
