My husband and I popped in here with our small daughter one evening when I couldn't be bothered to cook! We knew it had recently refurbished and I was therefore keen to check it out. We both indulged in the plume burger and our daughter was well catered for, with the staff accommodating her every need. I love a good...

Thank you for your excellent review! We are so thrilled that we could cater for you so well, and delighted you enjoyed the food. We believe our choice of any three toppings on any burger for no added cost is a definite bonus. We hope to see you again soon!

We visited with friends on a Sunday, it has had a beautiful makeover which is a great improvement, but the roast dinners where inadequate for the £14.95 charge Roast potatoes where not authentic roast potatoes, the meat was dry and curled up with dry gravy. We were in a group and they bought out one tiny dish of vegetables which...

We are really sorry to hear about your Sunday roast experience. We can only apologise for the lack of care delivered on the part of staff and kitchen. We have a new chef who is currently creating some fantastic dishes for our customers - we would be thrilled if you would return and give us a second taste. I firmly...

Although I currently live abroad, Sherborne is my much-loved home town and my husband and I always try to make time for a visit when in the UK. This time round, our visit to the Plume was the first since the change of management and O, what a difference. The new decor is superbly done, the delightful barmaid (Joanne) couldn't...

Popped in here over the weekend as heard it had been refurbished, which it has done and the place is unrecognisable (for the better). A friendly welcome is always good and this was evident from the start. They have cleverly split it into 3 areas with a snug room at the front then a long room with TV and seating...

We popped in here for Sunday roast without prior booking. We received a lovely welcome and the service was very good. We ordered the roast beef and lamb and it was very tasty and plenty of it. The price was £13.95 which is plenty but I couldn't fault the food. It's certainly worth a try and the decor has been...

We visited the newly refurbished Plume of Feathers which is now under new ownership and management for our anniversary. My husband and I both had the Beef roast which was cooked beautifully by the head chef Marie. The meat was so tender and melted in the mouth and the vegetables were fresh and delicious. The portions are very large, unfortunately...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating back to 1590, The Plume of Feathers is a beautiful and historic inn located directly opposite the world famous Sherborne Abbey. Though newly renovated at the end of 2016, the bar and restaurant retain many features of the original inn. The Plume offers five award winning cask ales and is a vibrant town pub at the weekends with live music and entertainment. In the summer why not enjoy a cool beer or a glass of wine in the courtyard garden. The property offers free parking for residents, free WiFi, homemade food and real ales. We are a family and dog-friendly pub. With not only baby changing facilities and high chairs, we can also cater to your little-one’s needs in the kitchen. Please note that dogs are allowed in the bar areas, but not in the restaurant. As of 2017, The Plume of Feathers boasts four newly renovated individual and stylish rooms, each with an en suite bathroom. All rooms have a flat-screen TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The Inn is located in the heart of Sherborne and is close to all amenities. Both Sherborne Abbey (opposite the inn) and Sherborne School are within easy reach. The train station a short walk away, with direct trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The Plume of Feathers makes an ideal base for exploring Sherborne and the surrounding area, with the Somerset border close by and Yeovil 6 miles away. Glastonbury is a 40 minute drive north, whilst historic Dorchester lies around 30 minutes to the south by car. ... more   less
