With a history stretching back to 1590, The Plume of Feathers is a beautiful example of a lovingly preserved British inn with a modern menu. Relax in snug surroundings and indulge in sumptuous Italian recipes complemented with fine wines from across Europe.

The Plume of Feathers menu is perfect for sharing, with two to three plates per person letting diners experience a great selection of flavours. Start off with a rhubarb negroni, then sample the pig head ravioli with sage butter and balsamic vinegar, or arancini balls stuffed with beetroot and gorgonzola. Tastes of the local area are showcased with the Dorset charcuterie and cheeses, there are River Exe mussels with arrabbiata sauce, and baby pizzas with sumptuous toppings.

Classic Italian desserts at The Plume of Feathers in Dorset include tiramisu, limoncello cheesecake and gluten-free gelato. Over 30 Italian wines are served by the glass, and there are Italian beers served as well.

A charming fusion British and Italian dining, The Plume of Feathers is opposite the world-famous Sherborne Abbey, and a 5-minute walk from Sherborne Rail Station.

    It was the perfect location for a family celebration with the opportunity to try lots of different dishes. The atmosphere was fun and convivial and the service was impressive at a busy time.

    Great decor and ambience

    Adventurous menu

  • (((** 6 February 2019 by Susan from London

    Friendly staff and cosy interior. I just wish it would drop the sharing plate idea - portions are too small (and overpriced) to share with more than two (small) eaters, making eating a stressful and thus rushed affair! Happily come back if they changed to normal sized dish.

    Superb service from I assume the restaurant manager, she was fabulous and so helpful.

    Great food and very good service. Difficult to pick a favourite dish as they were all very good but probably the venison ragu of I had to choose.

    Quieter than usual for a Friday night so not the usual atmosphere. One of our party, who was there for the first time commented that some background music was needed
