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 just pop in for a lovely pub meal. We have 13 cosy 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 available at a small additional cost, but we promise, it is worth every penny.

Just to make your stay that little bit more special, our interiors boast stunning features such as Victorian-style tiled floors, dark wood furniture, gentle lighting, and carefully chosen furnishings. We want to ensure that you get a warm and friendly welcome followed by an impressive service. Not only are our interiors spectacular, we also have a patio so if you’re lucky with the weather, you can enjoy a drink and a meal in the sun. However, if you fancy a bite to eat outside on a chillier day, we wont judge you!

Safety is our Priority

Caring for our People Makes Sense

  • Looking after our teams means they can look after you.
  • This starts with providing our already fantastic teams with additional training to follow safe COVID-19 working procedures and regulations.
  • Each day team members will complete a health screening questionnaire to confirm they are in good health prior to beginning work.
  • We ask that you do your bit and respect our teams and any requests they have. It’s all with your safety in mind.


Keeping Social, whilst Social Distancing Makes Sense

Look out for additional signage in pub to establish safe, social distancing

This might include:

  • Highlighting where and how you order at the bar 
  • Removing some tables to ensure comfortable social distancing can be maintained
  • Managing capacity, meaning you may be asked to queue outside


Caring for you, your friends and family Makes Sense

  • Hand sanitiser is available to use at every entrance for your peace of mind.
  • Once inside we’re taking as many steps as possible to reduce contact 
  • Our menus will be used only once and are fully recyclable once you’ve finished with it

About Our Food

We want to ensure you have the best experience possible when you visit, and our menus continue to offer your favourite pub dishes at an unsurpassed quality.

We always think of those guests who have special dietary requirements when developing our menus so there is always a choice of vegetarian, vegan and NGCI dishes.  In addition, we have full allergen information available on pub web pages, via our online app and printed copies in our pubs.

We’re continually innovating to bring you both new tastes and new dishes, whilst ensuring your pub favourites are always available and the best they can be.

I am sure you will agree, there really is something for everyone. We look forward to welcoming you with a friendly smile, this is your local.
