Restaurant description

Inside a stunningly renovated former rectory featuring floor to ceiling windows, Lanes Hotel is a contemporary setting for seasonal European dishes and traditional British afternoon teas in the picturesque village of West Coker.

The Lanes Hotel menu boasts a selection of British favourites and more contemporary European recipes, using the best seasonal produce. There are premium cuts of steak from the local butcher, as well as fresh fish from the Dorset coast, served with triple-cooked chips. Ballotine of chicken is served with asparagus and truffle with thyme jus, and there are vegetarian dishes including sweet potato and corn stew with cornbread muffin and salad.

Desserts include classics like bread and butter pudding with English custard, and exotic twists such as passionfruit mousse with lime sponge, fruit salad and sorbet. Afternoon teas at Lanes Hotel in Yeovil treat diners to freshly made pastries, sandwiches and loose leaf teas.

Also serving British ciders and speciality beers like oyster stouts, Lanes Hotel is a 13-minute drive from Yeovil Rail Station.

    Excellent. Very efficient but friendly staff. Food top notch. All together a very pleasant dinner. Will definitely return. Only downside, lighting a bit bright for us.

    We ate in the lounge which was a bit tired looking but seemed a more relaxed space to have our afternoon tea in. The two waitresses were a delight and very attentive. The food was a little disappointing. 3 finger sandwiches each, the patisserie was nice but the scones were pretty dry and unappetising. Still, made a nice break in our journey.

    Disappointed at the small selection choices for lunch, mostly sandwich and pizza. We have eaten at Lanes before, but in the evening. Wouldn't go at lunch time again. It is a beautiful hotel and the gardens are gorgeous.
