Description: 23rd April 2011 As chain pubs go it was very good and not to be confused with the fantastic Half Moon Inn at Horsington a few miles away. The food was freshly cooked with a noticeable lack of frozen veg. Service was good, tables clean and prices fair. Menu although ‘corporate’ had a few interesting ideas and he specials were appealing. Parking is a little unusual; a pay and display car park then pub customers get a refund proportionate to spend, so if eating likely a full refund as we did, but you need change before going there. Dinner for 2 with drinks £27.40.

“To quick to refund”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

As normal for a Marstons pub,micro city,
Food was sort ok,staff work hard with poor ethics,
The wife wanted a side salad with-her streak ,all good,£2
The salad was a total insult to to price,two halfs of a plum tomato ,half a slice of cucumber , and a few leafs which would fit in the palm of a baby's hand !
On the side I ordered 3 sausages for to £2
Well I kid you not ! It said grilled,under statement , 1 quarter was grilled the rest cold and raw,
We did complain and had a refund no questions ASKED, REALLY ,!
Just to easy to produce poor quality!

We had a meal at the Half Moon Inn in Sherborne and the food was excellent, very resonably priced, great choice and a very friendly atmosphere.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

I love this place, had many meals in here, even christmas meals with all the family. It's decor really isn't that bad, maybe in need of a minor update but it is a busy pub in a wonderful old building. Staff are great, food always good, some items (a certain pie isn't quite so good but there certainly wasn't any gristle in it!). The staff are great, friendly and efficient! Prices are reasonable. Never ever had a problem in here not even when we had our family christmas meal in here earlier this month, the food was delicious and hot and all came out in reasonably quick succession and there were a lot if us!

“Best meal on our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, and we were absolutely overwhelmed with the standard of food and selection. The staff were so helpful and accommodating, we can't speak highly enough of the service. The steaks that we had on the first night was cooked to perfection, and the fish we had on the second night was the best I have ever tasted. The breakfasts were top notch, very filling. Lovely decor in the restaurant, and a huge range of ales and wines available. We will definitely be dining there, the next time we are in Sherborne.
