From cool cafés to sushi bars and traditional Italian eateries to bespoke burger joints, Yeovil’s eating out scene is packed with excellent cafés, bistros and restaurants.
Places to eat in Yeovil
A veteran of Yeovil’s eating out scene for over a decade, Tamburino is an excellent Italian restaurant decked out in serious style, with rustic paintings and vintage furniture creating a traditional and inviting restaurant. The food covers all the usual pizza and pasta classics and has been such a local success they’ve branched out into a series of chain restaurants and cafés.
Nearby on Bond Street is Bombay Dining, one of the best Indian outlets in Yeovil. A short walk from our Yeovil Town Centre hotel, the Bombay is open daily for lunch and dinner, serving up dozens of dishes from across India as well as offering an excellent set-price menu for those that can’t decide.
On the same street is Daniel Sushi, a small but excellent sushi joint ranked on Tripadvisor as the best restaurant in Yeovil – if sushi, temaki, tempura and more are your dish, then make sure to book ahead at this popular Japanese restaurant.
Heading towards the High Street in the centre of town, you’ll come to several of our favourite Yeovil restaurants. The Cow & Apple is the answer to all burger-fanatics prayers. A simple but highly effective menu covers every conceivable burger (and hot dog) out there, while they also do a range of milkshakes, spirits, wines and beers.
While The Cow & Apple is all about relatively fast food, Mulberrys is all about the slower pace of life. A cultured bistro with exposed brick walls, they open Tuesday to Saturday for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner and an impressive wine menu, while they also let you bring your own wine for a corkage fee.

Smack bang in the middle of Yeovil, The Orchard is the perfect post-retail pick-me-up and just a short walk from our Yeovil Town Centre hotel. Open for breakfast, lunch, tea, coffee and plenty of cake, the licensed café on Yeovil High Street is a brilliant all-rounder, making it perfect for a caffeine hit on the go or a more relaxed sit-down experience.
Nearby on Princes Street you’ll find three excellent café options. The Emporium Café is a wonderfully modern venue best known for its decadent high tea, which also comes in vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and children’s options, as well as a more traditional range of café classics. It’s also part of The Emporium, a three-storey hive home to over 80 independent retailers selling everything from art and crafts, vintage fashion, home-wares, jewellery, vinyl and more.
Virtually next door is The Winking Frog – not only does it have a unique name, it’s a wonderful initiative that helps adults with learning difficulties find work. Open Monday to Saturday for breakfast and lunch, the bread and cakes are all freshly-made in store each day while the walls are opened up to local artists who display a wide range of photos, prints and paintings all available to buy.
Lastly at the top of Princes Street is the Number 50 Café, a bustling coffee shop and licensed restaurant open for breakfast and lunch from Monday to Saturday, with plenty of vegan and gluten-free options on the menu.
