The Beef was tough vegtables cold roast potatoes not too bad yorkshire. pudding very flat and soggy. When asked if we had enjoyed our launch we did tell the waitress the words as above... More

We stayed here for 1 night on New Years Day. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the place was clean but the room and the bar/restaurant area were in sore need of the soon to take place refurbishment. It certainly did not fit it's description of 'stylish accommodation'. The breakfast was perfectly adequate and plentiful but we decided... More

I stayed here for a night while passing through Sherborne. The room was as one would expect for the price but the whole place is just so dated and run down. Breakfast was hardly worth eating and a major cause for complaint.

I came in for dinner with some friends and ordered a steak, after a lengthy amount of time trying to get the undertrained staff to understand each of our orders we waited for half an hour, and my steak arrived overcooked, I ordered medium, it was charred and well done. So I sent it back and it was replaced by... More

My wife, my daughter and I visited here for lunch mid week at 1300hrs. It was only at approximately 20% capacity throughout our lunch, so not overly busy. Two adult lunches, one starter, one child's lunch and two beverages came to almost £40. The real insult was that we had to wait almost 45 minutes for this over priced meal... More

The Inn is situated in the heart of the ancient town of Sherborne which is renowned for its Abbey. There is a good selection of shops, restaurants’ and sights to see. My room was OK and roomy for a single. A big let-down with the hotel is its breakfast. It was not set-up for a 0700 start, the service was... More

Table should have been reserved from twelve noon. On arrival this had not been done which was extremely disappointing as family had travelled from Swansea on the 18th November and the restaurant was full. The bar manager arranged tables so the ten of us could've seated. He gave us a round of drinks free of charge because if the mix... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago as we were going to a wedding in Sherborne. Our room on the 1st floor was perfectly adequate for one night; it was clean and the beds were comfortable although the room was on the small side but that didn't matter to us. Other members of our party had a room on... More
