Restaurant description

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.

    Food, staff and ambience was lovely! And no problem catering for my allergies, which is such a bonus. And the wine choice was excellent. So glad this lovely restaurant/pub is practically on my doorstep!

    Nice staff and delicious weekend food. The weekday tapas is nice but that is not relevant to this review.
