Delicious food, especially the risotto and cauliflower salad. Difficult to choose our favourite!

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.

    The whole experience of dining here is so well thought out and delivered. The interior is stunning, plenty of seating available inside and there’s a lovely courtyard for outside dining too. The service is very good. The food is sublime. Wonderfully cooked dishes. All in all a brilliant place to eat in Sherborne.

    A different experience for me - sharing dishes, if you are hungry or have a big appetite this could become very expensive. Although what we had was very good.

    Delicious meal. Good service.
    Only downside is no parking.

    We have eaten here twice and in both instances have been very impressed with the range of dishes available. The dishes are both inventive and appetising.
