Regularly changing ales in simple alehouse, open all day with very inexpensive beer and food

Just a stroll away from the beautiful, golden-stone Sherborne Abbey, this unpretentious, down-to-earth tavern still draws in customers for its fine ales and amazingly cheap food. The atmosphere, as ever, is lively, chatty and warmly welcoming and the straightforward flagstoned bar with its cosy corners is full of understated character. The small games room has a pool table and a quiz machine, and there's also a TV room; mobile phones are banned. The splendid choice of beers on handpump includes Cerne Abbas Ale, Otter Bitter and Teignworthy Neap Tide. Also, several wines by the glass and a choice of malt whiskies.

What the licensee says

The Digby Tap is a typical old style drinking Pub. The building (parts dating from the mid 16th century) has been in the past a parish workhouse and in1869 it became the cook house to The Digby Hotel. Sherborne Boys bought the School in 1964 but fortunately the Tap continued as a pub.
