A former 18th-century coaching inn, Hunter’s Moon was runner up in the Good Pub Guide’s Landlord of the Year 2012. It is also renowned for homemade British cuisine, real ales, and traditional ciders.

Offering a wealth of comforting dishes, Hunter’s Moon menu includes local seasonal dishes like crispy duck in gooseberry sauce, a tasty game casserole, and a succulent pan-fried venison steak. Other favourites include the slow roasted lamb shank in port & red currant sauce, and the alluring pork chops in Somerset scrumpy cider and apple sauce. There is also a fantastic selection of chargrilled steaks.

Decked with homely trinkets, authentic red brick features, and stone fireplaces, Hunter’s Moon is a cosy hideaway. A quaint beer garden, decorated with hanging flower baskets, allow diners to bask in the rural Dorset surroundings.

In the rural village of Middlemarsh, Hunter’s Moon restaurant in Dorset is just a 5-minute drive from the historic town of Sherborne. Dorchester is just a 20-minute drive away.

    Very welcoming hosts. Excellent choice on the menu. The men very much enjoyed their extremely generous portion of ham and mushroom pie with vegetables and we "girls" both chose salad, my friend had the beetroot and goats cheese and I the chicken and bacon. Again very good portions and a delicious mixed salad.
