About Us open/close

The Half Moon is currently undergoing a change of management. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


A beautiful and historic pub located at the gateway to Dorset the Half Moon is perfect for lunch, dinner and drinks.

Hall & Woodhouse

Our Heritage. Hall and Woodhouse is one of the few remaining regional family brewers, brewing our award-winning Badger beers in Dorset and offering warm hospitality at our pubs for over 230 years.

Our Food. We use regional food partners, typically from family businesses like us, who provide us with quality ingredients that our team of talented chefs (not microwave technicians!) use to create fresh, unpretentious, seasonal dishes.

Our Hospitality. We employ nice people who think like us and enjoy the same things that we do; food & drink, and, perhaps more importantly take real pleasure in looking after people and making them happy.

Our Location. Located at the gateway to Dorset on the edge of rolling Dorset and Wiltshire countryside. The Half Moon is convenient for Shaftesbury home of Gold Hill (made famous by the Hovis TV ad), Salisbury and the Blackmore Vale.
