We need somewhere to stay in Sherborne, my wife's brother funeral was out in yetminster and then finish up at the Weavers, we needed to be close to the Weavers and the Half moon was ideal. The room was excellent with complimentary bottled water. The staff were excellent nothing too much trouble. We had all our meals in the pub... More

I frequently work away from home resulting in a lot of overnights throughout the UK. The friendly service received from the staff at the Half Moon has resulted in many return visits over the last 4 years. The hotel is based in the centre of the town just opposite the Abbey, which is a great tourist attraction. The hotel combines... More

I often stay here for business and always look forward to my stay. The owners/staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms have everything I need, comfortable bed, always clean, plus good wifi internet. The bar is usually lively with locals and tourists alike but bar noise has never been an issue in the rooms. The menu is... More

Stayed here again for a weekend in early October - staff were welcoming and recognised us from our previous stays. We had booked two rooms, both were very clean and a good size but no toilet brush - would be useful particularly as there are two curry houses nearby! We ate in the pub on the Friday night, don't expect... More

We only had 1 night in the half moon inn and found the staff and room to be very good. We arrived at 21:00 (Car park entrance is a bit tight )and had a meal in the pub, Good pub grub and at a reasonable rate. The room was on the second floor at the front and looked out on... More

Not the best place if you are looking for peace and quietMake sure than you do not book rooms at the front of building. Don't expect a quiet early night on the Saturday evening. Even during Sunday breakfast,how meal was disturbed by a very nice lady who was hoovering around how table. The place is not set up for a... More

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.
