The Half Moon is an interesting hostelry in this lovely historic town of Sherborne. Good room with en-suite, comfortable bed and great shower above bath. Room 3 was quiet. Enjoyed the pub atmosphere with good breakfast and meal in the evening. Friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably priced all round. The town has interesting individual shops as well as usual chains...

We booked a suite! Turned out to be a room with 3 beds rather than a suite. Room was grubby and tired at best, sheets although clean were polyester and the duvet one of those 6.99 affairs you pick up in discount stores. The bathroom was awful, toilet bowl was fully of dark brown stained limescale, the taps dripped and...

The room was quite a good size and the beds were quite comfortable. However it's time for a spruce up as things are getting a bit threadbare. The Breakfast was OK but I've had better. They forgot to service our room one night. I suppose you get what you pay for

Arriving late on a Friday we was delighted to see a packed bar and lively scenes out front in beautiful Sherborne, which seemed positive. The front desk was unattended throughout the stay which was slightly irritating, and we had to ask at the bar to check in. Our room was spacious with lovely large windows with slightly dated decor. The...

We have stayed here numerous times before but it is now under new management and other recent reviews have said the staff are unfriendly so we were a little concerned as to what kind of welcome we would receive. As it turned out we didn't need to worry, the young man who booked us in and the first barman who...

My wife and I, haven't been in for a few weeks to eat, at the Half moon, but the state of the furniture has deteriorated, badly in that time. The seats & stools were filthy,so much so, that i took a picture, of the stained fabrics. The carpets need burning. The staff are always very friendly, and attentive,but working under...

We booked late and got a twin room at the front of this beautifully located Inn. We had fabulous views of the abbey from our windows. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Loads of parking too. Breakfast was fine with plenty of choice. This is a really popular pub which is great as all other pubs in town seemed...

Good: Location, staff, cleanliness, car park and free WiFi. Average: Breakfast. For development: Room maintenance (bathroom shelves and bath-side broken). Stained mattress protector. It can be noisy at the front in the evening with drinkers and in the morning with deliveries. Probably a back room would be best.

Service was good. Food Average at best. Boasts it has Wifi but it was hiding when I was there. Very good location in the middle of everything. If you wanted a night out its not a bad place to start the night.
