Westbury, Sherborne, DT9 3EH

Benefitting from a prime spot in the heart of town, The Britannia Inn is just a stone’s throw away from the famous Sherborne Abbey. Steeped in history, The Britannia’s pretty building dates back to 1743.

The cuisine here is simply superb. Talented head chef Fred sources all ingredients locally and has a passion for top-quality food, tweaking his menu on a daily basis and presenting well-sized portions at reasonable prices. Stop by for the quick lunch offer, perfect for those who require a satisfying lunch but don’t have much time to spare. The dish of the day accompanied by a glass of wine, ale or soft drink is priced at £7 and served in minutes. For a mouth-watering start to our meal, I sampled the smoked salmon, grain mustard and crab gateau, accompanied by chive potato salad and fresh leaves. This was followed by a flawlessly presented main course of whole plaice served with tomatoes, spinach, fine beans and potatoes. The fish was beautifully tender and the combination of delicate flavours was exceptional. My partner opted for succulent duck breast accompanied by sun-blushed tomato mashed potato, fine green beans and an unusual yet delicious blueberry jus. For dessert we were spoilt for choice with an array of tempting offerings. We sampled the smooth blueberry panna cotta with a delightfully refreshing summer fruit compote, and a splendidly rich chocolate brownie with strawberry cheesecake ice cream.

Thanks to the outstanding cuisine and a team of attentive, knowledgeable staff, The Britannia Inn is a fantastic place in which to celebrate exceptional British food and sample some of Dorset’s finest cuisine.
