    Ate here with daughter's family – 4 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 10. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event: lovely dining room, delicious food very attractively presented, and attentive service without being over-solicitous. The butter tomatoes (butter that looked very like tomatoes and tasted of tomato) were great.

    Very comfortable surroundings, attentive staff. Did get a bit chilly in the dining room towards the end of the meal - after 9.30. Food very tasty, crab dish delicious. Rib-eye steak tasty and rice pudding delicious

    Excellent location in centre of Sherborne. The restaurant overlooks the hotel gardens which are very well cared for. The food was delicious and the service extremely attentive. A welcoming experience.

    The food was excellent and it was lovely to have a choice of fish dishes. The service was good too. However, we made some observations. The atmosphere in the dining room was a little stark down to the lighting and lack of candles For a fine dining restaurant It was strange that you could not have a single glass of champagne or Prosecco only bottles measuring a glass and a half. We also noted that from the wine list you could not order a single glass of desert wine. Very restrictive. Why did some tables have white linen table cloths and not others. It was also a little chilly and there was a draft coming from the closed outside door. With these observations in mind it may be that we do not return which we think is a shame.

    There were 4 of us dining and we had chosen the Taster Menu with Wine Flight. We were kept waiting with no menus or water for some time but after a prompt the service improved. The quality of the food was superb with a wonderful variety of flavours complimented by an excellent wine flight. An adjustment to our bill recognised the earlier poor service. The Taster Menu is incredible value for money. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    Every course was excellent but the soups were particularly memorable. Tomato butter was a first and was brilliant

    Staff both Reception and Restaurant were most welcoming and professional. Lunch as described and delivered was very good and appreciated. The wine list is small but we were impressed with our Chablis which we would normally steer clear of and look for something more interesting perhaps and recently " discovered " .
