The Dining Room is a beautiful new restaurant situated in the stunning surroundings of the 8th century Sherborne Abbey and 15th century almshouse. We cook sensational traditional British food with a respectful nod to the past and an eager fork in the fresh ideas of contemporary dining. The buildings that house the restaurant were originally erected in 1743 by Lord William Digby, and founded as a school for the "education and clothing of poor girls". These buildings are full of vibrant history, the echoes of a busy school community and the beneficence of the 'Good Lord Digby' and his wife, Lady Jane, whom the school was founded in the memory of. We hope to do justice to the rich heritage of Lord Digby's school, whilst serving tantalising, exquisitely good British food.
