Very friendly staff and helpful. The rooms are a bit outdated but clean. For a pub-hotel it is nice. The choice of differente items in breakfast is limited. The cooked breakfast is full English and of good quality. It can be ordered at the staff and is prepared on request. The food in the restaurant is very good. They also...

Stayed here as part of a wedding party. Rooms and facilities are adequate with the plumbing and decor being a bit tired, probably due to lack of investement by the pubco owning the place. Staff were friendly and efficient, service was excellent and the pub/restaurant offered plenty of choice at reasonable prices.

Stayed here for 2 nights mid Oct 2016, Reception area was not a delight and got progressively worse as we climbing the two flights of stairs.

We stayed for one night at the Half Moon. We used it only as a bed and breakfast establishment as we were busy the rest of the time. The place looks great from the outside and looks across to the magnificent Abbey area. The bar room as one walks in looks fine but once off the ground floor things become...

Upon arrival as you walk up from the car park to the side door for the reception area the exterior looks decidedly shabby, a theme which continues up the stairs to the rooms. The whole bar area has been refurbed and is relatively smart and clean but the money stopped there. 1. Room only had one out of 3 lights...

Finding ourselves in Sherborne, in the early evening, we were pleased to find somewhere open for a meal! The Half Moon is an unsophisticated, friendly pub with all your usuals on the menu.

Hi Can I just say thank you very much for taking the time to leave positive feedback about our pub, always gives the team a boost. For future reference, there is a car park behind the pub, it is pay and display but you can claim the money back with a purchase at the bar. Kind regards Kerry Hansford
