The White Hart, Sherborne

This has always been one of Sherborne's better pubs (and I can remember back to the days when Ken and Ann were in charge in the 1960's). Mind you, Sunday lunch wasn't magnificent, although the beer was good. One of the barmen seemed a bit too pleased with himself, and the other one needed to keep his shirt buttons done up! Perhaps the landlord/lady needs to exert a stronger presence? Never mind my moans, still one of the better Sherborne pubs.

The Chetnole Inn, Chetnole

The landlord here has got everything under control: a good choice of well-kept beers; a short, sharp menu full of fresh food choices; and, oh wonder of wonders, everything is so clean! He served drinks at the bar; took food orders at the table; delivered the food orders; and then cleared away. All by himself and without any sign of anybody being kept waiting. He was very pleasant too - why can't more places be like this? Lunchtime clientele comprised well-off pensioners and not much sign of anyone else, but then I'm getting close to the pensioner bit myself. Definitely a place to go back to.

The Mitre Inn, Sandford Orcas

Please keep away from this pub. The landlord selects excellent beers and keeps them perfectly. The food is home-made with fresh ingredients. The interior hasn't changed (i.e. been mucked about) during the forty years or so that I've been going there. The people you meet (usually) have interesting things to say. This pub is perfect. Please do not spoil it for me by going there.
