A large pub with 13 rooms on 1st floor(stairs), run on minimal staff. Rooms and breakfast very good, towels also. No toilet brush apparently due to guest misuse! and cleaning staff may forget the toilet - at least that happened to us. The pub is almost opposite Sherborne Abbey and right in the centre of town. They have their own... More

Stayed and ate here and found everything to be good. The food was good, the beer was good and the room was good. I would definitely stay again. My only tiny moan would be the lack of check backs by waiting staff. I wasnt asked if my food was ok or offered any extra drinks. I had to order at... More

My son is at Sherborne School and the Half Moon Inn is the perfect base for visiting. With single rooms for just 45 pounds including breakfast its great value. My son enjoys eating in the restaurant (whilst keeping an eye out for a teacher or two), and we have taken advantage of the 20% off our meals if you are... More

Under the beautiful glare of the Sherbourne Abbey this traditional English pub gives great fayre and ambience. Food is traditional and a standard menu if you looking for pub grub in a quaint English village this is it. Recommended visited a few times.

My wife and I visit Sherborne regularly (for many years) and have tried many of its hotels and restaurants but we always stay at and eat in the Half Moon Inn. Why ? Because Sherborne offers many exclusive places to stay, all with fine food and wine and fancy prices to go with it. At the opposite end of this... More

I am in total agreement with all the other positive reviews here. My friends and I were delighted that we chose the Half Moon Inn for our annual reunion. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff unfailingly friendly and helpful.

This may have been a last minute booking but this is up there in my top hotel stays. We only live a few miles away but I had promised my daughter a night away. As I said, it was a last minute booking as we had been let down by another hotel ( not in Sherborne), so I didn't have... More

Spent a couple of nights at the Half Moon Inn. Where to start...it was fantastic, brilliant friendly staff and management, a good pint, lovely food, so much choice for breakfast, nice comfy cosy rooms. A nice outdoor seating area for a evening drink, and lots of comfy seating indoors. Walking distance to all the beautiful shops in Sherborne, and just... More

I stayed here for a week during the summer. Awaiting a hip operation and very lame, I was horrified to see that the shower was over the bath and there were no non-slip mats or grab rails. When I asked to move room they said they were all the same. HOWEVER - the next day a mat and a grab... More
