About Us

The Half Moon is a traditional pub with hotel accommodation in the shape of thirteen charismatic rooms, situated in the beautiful Dorset town of Sherborne. Pub food is served all day and the varied menu includes sandwiches and snacks as well as hearty pub classics. We also have a fantastic selection of drinks, including cask ales and a range of wines. Sherborne is ideal for discovering Hardy's Wessex countryside and the town itself houses the historic Sherborne Abbey and Sherbone Castle to explore. Just a short drive away from the hotel are the famous Gold Hill in Shaftesbury and Stourhead House and Gardens, as well as the many picturesque thatched roof villages of the surrounding area. Accommodation prices include our fantastic free breakfast.
