The Dining Room in Sherborne

Westbury, Sherborne, DT9 3EH
This elegant establishment is housed in the original Lord Digby's School for Girls, in the stunning market town of Sherborne. Now fully refurbished, the interior features elegance and style in abundance. Light and airy in the daytime and ambient by night, The Dining Room in Sherborne is known by locals and tourists alike as a special setting for lunch, Sunday roast and dinner.

The sleek leather chairs, soft lighting and candlelit tables add to the relaxing atmosphere of the place. So, head to the cosy bar area and sip on a selection of ales, wines and spirits while you ponder over the menu, before proceeding to the restaurant. Attentive, friendly staff will make sure you're well cared for during your visit as they serve you beautifully presented dishes.

Starters include the tasty beetroot-cured salmon with mango gel and horseradish snow. Mains come in the form of grilled sea bass with beetroot purée, the juicy, locally sourced rib-eye steak served with triple-cooked golden chips, and the lighter option of artichoke, asparagus, tomato, and onion tart accompanied by a refreshing watercress salad.

Desserts are impressive and the perfect way to complete a superb dining experience. The tasty strawberry panna cotta with strawberry gel and crispy black pepper honeycomb, or passion fruit mousse with exotic fruit salad with
ginger crumbs will be hard to resist.

Three time AA-rosette-awarded head chef, Nick Cooper, heads up the passionate kitchen team and is the man behind the innovative dishes on the ever-changing, seasonal menu which has been thoughtfully created. There is always something new to try, as the ethos is to use locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. The aim is to serve delicious British cuisine with a modern twist, which keeps diners coming back time and again - Nick's signature dish of olive oil poached halibut, beetroot purée, orange vinaigrette, red shallot and basil is a dish that's doing exactly that.
