"The Green" Restaurant, Sherborne

Sherborne has a very good choice of eating places, including "The Green" restaurant (telephone +44 (0)1935 813821), which specialises in refined modern Mediterranean-style cuisine.  There is a wine bar/restaurant, "Arkles" in Digby Road (+44 (0)1935 389666), two indian restaurants in Half Moon Street, a cafe/deli called "the Pear Tree" also in Half Moon Street and ideal for light lunches, and a choice of several pubs (including The Crown on Greenhill) and tea/coffee shops (including the Three Wishes, Olivers and Cafe Fontana, all on Cheap Street).

Outside the town and in easy reach if you are staying in Sherborne, try The Queens Arms in Corton Denham (an excellent gastro-pub in a lovely little village 4 miles or so North of Sherborne).
