Visited again last evening and it appears to be a pub of extremes; there is no doubt that the food was extremely well cooked and the range of ales excellent - Cheddar Ales' Gorge Best, which was absolutely delightful, and several offerings from the local Moor Beer Company including Revival, Somerland Gold (I think) and Peat Porter (stored in a fridge? as it was far, far too cold and at £4 a pint - yes, £4 a pint - was the most over-priced beer I'd ever had.
After that it was downhill all the way. So, where to start? Well firstly parking is extremely limited and usually occupied by sports cars and bloody great 4x4's - indicative of the pretentious regular clientele. From the outside the pub is quite unpreposessing and inside also fails to impress, the bar area being functional rather than comfortable and obviously geared to diners. There is a separate dining room with old wooden furniture but it is extremely cramped. The service was, well, cavalier to say the least, certainly at the bar. The food, as I said, was extremely well cooked nouvelle cuisine but the portions are extremely small - I'd had a long day and as soon as I got home I had two pasties as I was still so hungry! The menu is ridiculously limited - just pork loin, cod, chicken or risotto on offer - and horrendously over-priced. OK I was in a party of about 20 but everything had been pre-ordered, so to take two hours to serve us a two-course meal was, in my opinion, far too long. Overall the pub is far too pretentious for me and the whole experience left a lot to be desired. From now on I'll leave this place to the fools who enjoy being parted from their money. I won't be back.

Just outside Sherborne, the Queen's Arms is a fantastic country pub with a welcoming atmosphere, good food and good ales, well worth makigj the effort to find from either the the town or the A303. The bars are cosy and comfortable, and the staff are extreemly welcoming, although some of the locals are a bit snooty. The food is expensive and is more aimed at the County set than the farm worker, but it manages not to be a gastro-pub as such. The beer is first class - I had two pints of Moors and an Adnams chaser and wish I could have stayed for more (there was one more ale and a cider I would have liked to try). I will definitely be back as this pub outclasses all the Sherborne pubs in every respect.
