Its hard to fathom out why people like this place. Its dirty and the staff are rude especially the landlord. There is a fine if you get caught using your mobile phone but the bar staff are constantly fiddling with theirs! One star because it is cheaper than the other pubs in town

this was recommended to us by local friends as a real place where locals frequent. It's simple, scruffy and lovely with a great selection of proper ale and simple lunches. So much nicer than the chains.

A proper local pub: great ale, good value food (lunchtimes) and genuine atmosphere, something that big 'pub cos' cannot emulate. Can be a bit crowded at peak times. Good selection of cask ales and simple menu.

The Digby Tap is a proper pub, full of atmosphere in the historic abbey town of sherborne Dorset. Real ales that change daily and the lunch time menus is perfect for that lunch to catch up with friends or to squash those hunger pangs, well worth a visit if you visit the town.

The Digby Tap in the delightful and ancient town of Sherborne should be compulsory in any itinerary of places to visit. This old public house is a well known oasis for the lovers of real ale, i.e. draft beers. It is in slightly shabby condition inside but this actually contributes to the atmosphere. The varnish on our table was mostly... More

Nice little pub in Sherborne, with a good selection of Real ale, and a nice, although small outdoor area where you can smoke, or just sit in the sun and enjoy your drinks. The landlord was very helpful
