Ideally situated in the centre of Sherborne. Staff couldn't do enough and the beds are so comfortable. Be warned the abbey clock strokes every 15 mins so ask for a room at the back! The bathroom had a number of broken screws and shelving remnants which really should have been removed. The toilet needed a dose of harpic to remove...

We had a great stay. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom. The bar has a great range of well kept beer and drinks and restaurant is good with large choice of food. Breakfast was also good with a large choice of food.

Would I really want to stay or eat in a place that allows people to let their dogs climb on tables and lick the uncleared plates next to cutlery that will no doubt be used again Bar full of loud drunks at 4pm on. Saturday Shame

We visited the Half Moon two nights in a row over the Bank Holiday for food and drinks.

The pub was very loud and bustling...

I was staying in another hotel in Sherborne and there was a confusion over bookings and I was double booked. The owner of the establishment I was due to stay in was incredibly apologetic and booked me into the Half Moon. In 2002 I bought an MGF sports car and went on a six week road trip all over Europe...

Always pop in here for dinner when I meet up with friends! For £8 you get 2 courses which is insane. The portion size is generous and I always leave feeling stuffed. Friendly staff and great ambience.

The food was standard (these days) pub grub but well cooked and plenty of it. Staff pleasant & friendly and very welcoming and menu well priced. Would...
