Food was all excellent, beautifully presented and delicious. Would have felt more welcoming if fire was light and there was background music

Some light gentle music on in the background would have given the pub a little more atmosphere as it was quite quiet which meant you could hear everybody else’s conversations . Lovely setting - just needed that little bit of ambience to warm it up

Out of the way pub. Atmosphere a little lacking but it was a quiet Tuesday night. Menu quite limited for a vegetarian. The starters were really tasty but the main course lacked finesse. Service was attentive.

We had been here for lunch and it was wonderful. So we were back for dinner. The appetizers were great but there was only one veggie choice for the mains. We were disappointed.

Chickpea/cauliflower curry had no depth of flavour and limited desert menu. Starter delicious and husband enjoyed all all of his meal. The young man behind the bar who also waited on us was polite.

Very welcoming and prompt service. Three different mains ordered were all highly appreciated and my dessert outstripped my expectations - delicious. We will be back.

The best thing about lunch was the staff. They were excellent. We had not been to the Rose and Crown for a few years and were disappointed in the food. The portions seemed much smaller than before and of course the prices have increased. We were seated in the bar area next to a very noisy group of ladies and the restaurant area was completely empty. We should have asked to be moved . The food tasted ok but presentation was lacking.

Love this place & our main courses were very good - but disappointed with desert. ‘Compressed watermelon’ - not sure what it should have been but probably not cubes of watermelon complete with seeds! And for £9.50. Not their usual creativity in display.

The lunchtime menu could benefit from having more lighter options eg sandwiches.

Roast beef lunch. Swamped in a glutinous salty gravy - would be nice to choose if you would like gravy. Yorkshire pudding burnt to a crisp and inedible. One thick slice of beef which was nice beef but could have been half the thickness. Very poor value - such a shame

Delightful pub restaurant in a delightful location. We went there for dinner and the food was quite excellent. The combination of ingredients & flavours of the dishes was so imaginative - it really played with your mind, giving your tastebuds a proper workout. The best meal out we’ve had in a long time. The staff were very friendly & attentive. Go there - you won’t be disappointed.

This has always been a favourite restaurant when visiting Sherborne on a monthly basis, however on this occasion I felt that something was missing. The food was good, but the service left a lot to be desired in our opinion. It was just under 20 minutes after being seated that we had to ASK for a drinks menu which then took another 10 minutes before we were asked what we would like to drink. We decided to give our food order at the same time, the drinks arrived 7-8 minutes later. I might add at this point there were no more than a dozen or so customers, so hardly being over run. This was exceedingly disappointing as one of the key fundamentals of a good restaurant is making sure the service is prompt and professional, say on this occasion the restaurant fell short of expectations.

We were recommended by friends and we are so glad they did. A lovely pub and restaurant, the food was excellent as was the service. We also stayed the night, the room was really comfortable with a huge bed and stunning views across the countryside.
