    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 " .

    My husband’s birthday dinner was lovely. The food was delicious and the service very good. My one quibble was that, after being handed copies of the menu, we waited for 25 minutes in the garden before someone appeared to take our order. However, after that it was plain sailing and a seamless service. It was a real pleasure to eat very good food that had been so imaginatively prepared. The dining room, with its view of the peaceful and secluded garden, added to our enjoyment.

    We treated some friends to the tasting menu for their birthdays. The food was delicious (we had been before so we knew it would be!) as was the prosecco and wine. The hotel and dining room are beautifully appointed and the staff are excellent - well trained, polite and friendly.

    A wonderful setting for a superb family lunch. The food was delicious, the starters being particularly good (Serrano Ham w/Mozzarella and balsamic vinegar; and the cheese brulee). The service was impeccable, but also relaxed and friendly.
