Have been to this venue before and found it average food. This time I only ordered a prawn cocktail. Took a VERY long time to arrive. First time I've ever had this cold starter served in a hot metal pie dish! Lettuce was wilting rapidly, prawns and sauce still cold but

Hi Carole Sorry to hear that your visit with us was not up to standard, I'm not sure if you discussed this with a manager at the time of your visit, as we will always do our best to rectify any issues immediately, but if you do wish to discuss your visit in person, please give me a ring on 01935 812017 or send an email to halfmoon.sherborne@marstons.co.uk Kind regards Kerry

Hi I apologise if you feel I was patronising on the phone yesterday, that wasn't my intention, I did just explain that as a business we have done all that we can to make customers aware that it is a pay and display car park, this includes numerous signs in the car park and further signs inside the business, and that had you bought a ticket, we would have redeemed this at the bar for you. The car park is controlled by Parking Eye and monitored by cameras, meaning that unfortunately, if you don't buy a ticket a fine is issued. I'm unsure which website stated that we have free parking, the below is taken from our website Our Car Park The Half Moon in Sherborne has a customer pay and display car park with limited spaces. Customers will need to buy a parking ticket but can then redeem this at the bar If you wish to discuss this further please contact me on 01935 812017 Kind regards Kerry

We spent one night at the Half Moon Inn whilst attending a craft fair nearby. We had a room on the second floor facing the Abbey (no.14) & it was comfortable & had everything we needed, including a kettle & complimentary tea & coffee. We didn’t experience any nouse either from
