VisitEngland Three Star Hotel
Good Hotel Guide Review
The ‘lovely’ walled garden surrounding this small hotel gives it a country house vibe in the middle of this historic market town. The ‘pleasant retreat’, taken over in 2018 by Peter and Lana de Savary, has been restored to its Edwardian splendour. Bedrooms are ‘comfortable, well furnished’, all different. Some have a private garden. The bar and lounge serve afternoon teas and light bites, also available on the terrace in good weather. Come evening, the restaurant offers ‘tasty’ seasonal menus with such dishes as venison loin, salt baked swede, kale, toasted oats, crispy sage. Plans are afoot for a spa and new garden suites. Sherborne Abbey is close by.
