Whether you’re looking for a classy cocktail, a cask ale or somewhere to dance the night away, you’ll find it all in our Yeovil nightlife roundup.
Nightlife in Yeovil
Club- and bar-hoppers will love Yeovil’s town centre, where a short five-minute walk connects you with some of the best drinking and dancing spots in town.
If you’re looking to eat, drink and be merry, Kazbar comes highly recommended. A tapas and cocktail joint open Tuesday to Saturday, they have a regularly updated food and drink menu that takes inspiration from around the world and our Yeovil Town Centre hotel couldn’t be any better placed as it’s directly over the road.
From there, we’d suggest heading to Bar Karma on Stars Lane which is home to several excellent bars and clubs. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, the stylish bar has an excellent cocktail range as well as nightly drink deals, while they’re also big believers in pushing local talent, with regular acoustic music sessions.
On the same street you’ll find Chicago’s Yeovil, a mainstay of the town’s nightlife scene since 1998. Once a rock-friendly late-night bar, it’s modernised over time and now includes impressive light and sound, VIP booths and on-trend DJs playing a mix of current and classic tunes until 3am every Friday and Saturday night.
And lastly, finish up your evening at Club Neo, also on Stars Lane. A fully-fledged nightclub that recently got a £250,000 upgrade, the club hosts guest DJs, celebrity appearances and student-focussed nights.

Pubs in Yeovil
Real ale fans will love The Beehive Inn, a real hidden gem on the western edge of Yeovil’s town centre. A community-run pub, they have a large children’s play area, a roaring log fire in winter, a wide range of local ales and plenty of entertainment including traditional pub games, a dart board, pool table and a vintage skittles alley. Snug, cosy and welcoming, it’s a wonderful traditional pub, around 10-minutes walk from our Yeovil Town Centre hotel.
Staying out west, The Bell Inn is a little further along Preston Road, and is a family-friendly pub. They do a wide range of food, including burgers, all-day-breakfasts and a kids menu, and offer regular drink and food deals meaning it’s wallet-friendly as well.
Nearby in the village of Lower Odcombe is The Mason Arms, another traditional pub with a modern twist. A picture-perfect pub in a cute village, they’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with some of the dishes using home-grown fruit and vegetables while real ale fans will love the home-brewed beers from the on-site microbrewery.
If food is just as important as the range of drinks on offer at pubs, The Red House to the south of Yeovil off Dorchester Road should tick most boxes. A stylish pub with large leather seats and sofas, the food is excellent, with a large range of vegan and vegetarian options, and the sort of triple-cooked chunky chips that could act as door-stops if they weren’t so delicious.
And a short drive up Dorchester Road back towards Yeovil is The Quicksilver Mail – while the name might be unique in the UK, they have a tried-and-tested approach to their pub combining real ales, lagers and ciders with home-cooked food served daily for lunch and dinner, a friendly welcome and regular live music.
