We'd been for a family outing (8 adults and 4 small children) to Sherborne on a Friday, and were looking for somewhere to have a pub lunch. Probably a big ask, but not helped because everywhere in town seemed to be full of middle-aged men...More

Firstly, overall you should not give this place a chance. I understand the need to gain a good reputation but they are completely missing the mark. Here's our experience.. We booked, for 5 of us at 1pm. We called earlier in the day to ask...More

Absolutely awful... Miserable chap behind the bar, dirty glasses lager was so cloudy the lines must be filthy and when I questioned it I was told" we're not a pub known for our lager" we're known for our bitters. Well I'm sorry but that's no...More

Went here for a Sunday Carvery with my family. Fantastic value for money. The beef, which I believe was local, was so tender. The veg, a choice of 3, was steamed, not boiled to death. What a welcome surprise. I have read the previous reviews...More

We visited here recently and had the Sunday Carvery. I do not usually leave bad reviews but I feel this is justified. The carvery meat was quite nice but the vegetables were awful. The potatoes were frozen, the broccoli and carrots were rock hard. The...More
