We were recommended this by Giles Coren in The Times a year ago. My son and friends visited early in this year, and were very thrilled. We were astonished at the Tardis like size of the two floors. Compliments to the chef for truly excellent cooking at a fair price. This restaurant MUST come back after November lockdown.

Food was very good. Service was polite but not the best, no steak knife offered for the Steak main course or salt or pepper. Not bad service but not great either.

Very pleasant lunch at The Green - each of the three courses was interesting and very well presented. The crab creme brulee starter was exceptionally good. Hake and chicken main courses were also very nice, followed by desserts. We can recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyable meal even with Covid restrictions. The menu was superb and i thought reflected the changing seasons well and utilised local produce but with enough of a twist to ensure you really feel like you're getting a dish that is unique to the chef and location. I thought the three dishes for £27 was exceptional value for money, we will definitely visit again.

Fantastic dishes using interesting ingredients in wonderful combinations. An emphasis on lesser known herbs and spices. Scallop ceviche with Planck pudding brandy snap a stunning standout.

The food generally was good however the dessert had been ''sitting around'' waiting to reach the table.
The front of house were nice people but poorly trained and slow with little knowledge on how a table should be served and I think they left my dessert sitting in the kitchen ; see above.

I also think they may have got our bill wrong, owner beware ; poor billing system.

I never left a tip, I always leave a tip, I feel bad, perhaps next time, the owner is a great chef, I will return.

Was visiting the area for the weekend and booked the restaurant after reading good reviews. It didn’t disappoint! First weekend for us since COVID lockdown and they were set up really well. No problem with social distancing, staff wearing masks & lots of anti bac available.
Really enjoyed our meal. The food was really high quality, locally sourced and tasted delicious.
Really good choice for a celebration or special treat

A great evening out for my mother- her first since lockdown. The safety measures put in place made her relaxed and they were very accommodating and changed our table to the ground floor when we explained she couldn’t manage the stairs. Great food and service. We’d happily return.

Excellent fresh tasting food, very pleasant evening. I had the duck salad followed by the fish, my husband had the smoked salmon followed by beef. We both had the cheeses to finish. We shared a bottle of very good red wine. Very enjoyable meal. We were visiting Sherborne and so glad we came here.

Visiting The Green is always a joy as the food is well thought out, good quality and well cooked and served by pleasant staff. We have enjoyed many excellent meals at this restaurant and look forward to visiting again. Our only niggle is the size of the portions seems to be increasing. Many visitors would regard this as a plus but in this health conscious age we prefer "less is more".
