We were visiting Sherborne house and gardens so wanted somewhere local that would cater for me (I'm vegan) and was delighted to see a Vietnamese Curry on the website menu, so we popped over, only to be greeted by one of the male staff members who was more than useless. Luckily there was a lady and another chap who explained... More

Great all round food especially the pizza. Nice fun pub to visit as great outside seating area. Nice pub for a beer and good stop off place before a great curry next door.

A real pub hotel and that's exactly what it is. Good pub food and nice place to drink a beer or cider. Rooms are basic but good value.

The building itself makes a good impression on you as soon as you see it, then the staff seem very friendly, the bar gas a wide range of real ales, lagers, ciders etc and all 8 of us enjoyed our food. I suspect that it might be better to visit for a nice lunch rather than a fancy evening meal... More

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.
