I was staying in another hotel in Sherborne and there was a confusion over bookings and I was double booked. The owner of the establishment I was due to stay in was incredibly apologetic and booked me into the Half Moon. In 2002 I bought an MGF sports car and went on a six week road trip all over Europe...

Always pop in here for dinner when I meet up with friends! For £8 you get 2 courses which is insane. The portion size is generous and I always leave feeling stuffed. Friendly staff and great ambience.

Easter Sunday lunch with friends about half way between where we both live. Not our choice they picked it but it was ok. Nothing to rave about but equally nothing to Oman about. The food was standard (these days) pub grub but well cooked and plenty of it. Staff pleasant & friendly and very welcoming and menu well priced. Would...

The food was nice but the burger was a bit gristly/meaty. I know I am being picky but I do recommend. It's a nice family visit and is a classic inn or pub. There are veggie options. Quite a few actually. But I can't remember for vegans.

The Half Moon is our Pub of choice for that extra special occasion when only an excellent meal will do. The major problem is that there is so much choice of good dishes that making a decision is time consuming!! The decor and layout of the Pub is wonderful, with nooks and cranny's to eat in but still be part...

This pub is one of those where the staff seem to find the customer a nuisance and this probably comes from the top. It has failed to move with the times and there are plenty of places better in Sherborne

We have stayed at the Half Moon, Sherborne numerous times before but this is the first time we have stayed since the refurbishment - we knew the bar and dining areas had already been refurbished and when we booked back in December we were told the bedrooms will have been refurbished by the time we stayed again (end of February)....

Having a friend to stay for the last few days we dropped into The Half Moon for lunch in beautiful Sherbourne. My heart sank when I recognized the menu from the Marston's Inn chain we visited the day before in Street which was pretty unappealing. However I was extremely surprised with the quality of food and service. May I suggest...
