The Half Moon

The Half Moon

Salisbury Road, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7 8BS

A lovely country pub at the gateway to Dorset

The Half Moon, Shaftesbury, is an attractive and historic pub that marks the northern gateway to Dorset for visitors coming from Wiltshire. On the edge of Shaftesbury, the Half Moon is a stone’s throw from Cranborne Chase (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

The pub itself exudes traditional character with ancient stone-walls, oak-beamed ceilings and a roaring log fire. These combine with the friendly hospitality to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. There are several dining areas, a delicious food menu and a large beer garden, all of which makes the Half Moon perfect for all occasions, all year round.
