Arrived with a fork over my shoulder, what pub would allow that! I just love this pub and this country, great beers, no mobiles or you get fined. Guest beers and very nice nibbles. Dogs, boots and newspapers. Get some in and visit this pub.

This is one of few remaining sticky slated floor, buxom (often) barmaids, real fantastic ale, no juke box. Excellent atmosphere, cheesy chips a must. sometimes crowded but the landlord always has time for you. Come as a stranger, leave with a load of friends. Cannot over rate this place. May it never close.

I've never been in the daytime but it's fantastic from around 8pm of an evening. Always packed. Full of faces old and new a great place to meet and network. This pub is not 'shabby... More

somewhere lively to go in Sherborne with lots of characters and reasonably priced drinks. Great 'proper' pub. Worth a view. Would imagine meals are reasonable too.
