Welcome to The Plume Of Feathers

We are a traditional Grade II listed 16th century pub serving Italian Small Plates to compete with any Italian restaurant, opposite Sherborne Abbey, that competes with any contemporary work of the Italian Renaissance. 

Our menu is substantially made up of authentic home-made Italian dishes with all our pasta, bread and sauces made in house on a daily basis. The menu also includes a novel element using some of the finest Dorset and Italian ingredients in quirky combinations. It also provides an unparralleled experience for those who have dietary requirements with numerous options for vegetarians, vegans & coeliacs. 

We would suggest you order between 2 to 3 dishes each to share amongst the table with an equal share between the 5 sections of the menu. 

Alongside our food, we serve the traditional tipples of ales, lagers, ciders & soft drinks but also over 60 Italian wines by the glass and over 30 Italian themed cocktails.

To add to all this the interior of the pub provides the cosiness and character of an old and traditional British pub with a courtyard that could convince you that you are in Italy (especially after a negroni and a couple of chianti). Don't worry, you can always retreat to one of our B&B rooms afterwards. 

'When in Sherborne, you MUST visit this place! Beautiful interior design with lots of seating options inside and outside - suitable for couples, groups, friends and families. Delicious tapas style food, including great gluten free options! The staff are always really friendly and make you feel very welcome. Great for lunch, dinner and drinks - day or night. Brilliant restaurant.'
