Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

The Half Moon is a grand old inn located in the charming Dorset town of Sherborne. Stay with us or pop in for a lovely pub meal. We have 13 simple ensuite rooms, some of which overlook Sherborne Cathedral. Each room has a shower or bath, a flatscreen TV, free WiFi, and tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast is complimentary. If you have family or friends in the area, they are most welcome to come and join you for breakfast.

Our real ale pub is a showstopper! A rather grand wood-panelled bar draws the eye immediately. Then you’ve got stunning features like Victorian-style tiled floors. Dark wood furniture, gentle lighting, and carefully chosen furnishings give us a warm and welcoming yet impressive look and feel. On warm days, head outside. Enjoy a drink and a meal on the patio, and watch the world go by.

Meet the girls for pizza and prosecco. Our pizzas are made fresh to order, and you can choose from a selection of tempting toppings. Drop in for a peaceful pint. Treat the family to a pub lunch. There’s a drink to complement each meal on our menu, which is served daily ‘til late. 

About Our Food

Colourful, fresh, and delicious, our food is served restaurant style by friendly and knowledgeable staff. From original and interesting sharers to superb comfort food and decadent puddings, the emphasis is on quality. You’ll find pies filled with rich sauces, tender and robustly-flavoured steaks, and juicy burgers as well as our famous Red Tractor farm-assured roast chicken.


All of our ingredients are responsibly sourced, from the cod and haddock we use in our Marston’s Pedigree-battered fish ‘n’ chips to the langoustine tails in our Whitby scampi. Or the 100% fillet fish fingers on our children’s menu.
