The Digby Tap is a step back in time. It serves unpretentious food at very reasonable prices. The staff are first class in every way. The ambience is that of a proper pub.

Visited on a weekend visit to Sherborne. We had a quick drink and left swiftly as there are no Coronavirus control measures in place. Nowhere to leave contact details, patrons drinking at the bar and no social distancing anywhere. It was pretty crowded and the football was on. It seems like a nice community pub, but we couldn’t stay as it was getting busier and no one (staff or customers) seemed to care about the pandemic.

This place has hardly changed since I first visited in 1961.
It was a "drinking" pub and, I am pleased to say , still is however in recent years there has been added a more extensive lunch menu and a Sunday lunch on the first Sunday in the month.
The quality of the food is superb and value for money for drink and food is second to none.
I am proud to say I still attend.
Long may it continue going from strength to strength..

Beautifully atmospheric. Fascinating history. Tucked away in a back street near the Abbey. Coming here feels just like 50 years ago. Paint and furnishings little changed. Food basic, fresh veg, and tasty, but pretty oily by today’s standards. Amazing prices (e.g small rump steak chips etc £6.00!)
The service is brisk, cheerful and efficient, a real working local.
Reminded friends of an Irish countryside pubs of their childhood!
