After a visit to Sherborne Castle, my husband and I found ourselves at the Digby Tap on the recommendation of a friend. The entrance is tucked off busy Cook Street at the side of a pleasant graveled patio with tables for alfresco meals and drink. Inside the pub is a bit of a rabbit warren of hallways, small rooms and... More

Had a fantastic steak and ale pie on Pack Monday, The best pie I've ever had. Go and try it. Beer must be the cheapest in Sherborne.

Just had a few beers but the lunch menu was fantastic. They do not serve food in the evening. So many knooks and crannies to sit in, and an outside area. Small and very old ,many different ales on sale which is the main reason for the visit. Many people were eating lunch and everyone seemed well pleased.

Almost don't want to review so that I still stand a chance of getting a table for lunch! Love this place. Is exactly what a pub should be. Don't expect gastro food and farrow and ball paint. This is a proper pub with an ever changing ale selection and very very well priced food for lunch. It's popular with locals... More

The posted menu suggested largely standard pub fare, but when the specials board was posted outside, we found a much more interesting selection. Inside, this is definitely a traditional pub (and a free house), catering particularly for locals who want that... More
