We will be serving takeaways during lockdown from Wednesday to Saturday evenings 5-8pm and also Saturday and Sunday lunches from 12-2pm (our phone lines will be open throughout service from an hour before). Check out our Menu of your favourite Italian Small Plates as well as a few deli items. We are serving a separate Sunday Lunch Menu - ideally order this by 8pm on Friday evening but we will always cook a few extra portions. We are not delivering so give us a call on 01935 389709 to make your order and then pick it up from the pub.
We can now offer drinks to takeaway as long as you order them before you arrive - 50% off all bottles of wine (click here), beers, ciders & soft drinks. Unfortunately, we feel our cocktails wouldn't travel well so instead we have also compiled a list of our favourite recipe's for you to challenge yourself to at home (ready after the weekend). If you're up for the challenge, why not push yourself to give our pizza packs a go - fun for the kids and an excuse to drink for the adults.
Food & Drink
We are a traditional 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 this, 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.
Please see a sample of a menu, wine list and cocktail list on the right of this page (or below on a smartphone).
"We ate as a group and were entranced by the Italian tapas type meal. The wonderfully tasty different course arrived steadily over the meal, providing almost a taster menu without the taster menu price. Staff were lovely and helpful. As well as the wonderful food this is a pub with a good range of beers. Thoroughly recommend."
