Dating from the late 16th century, this is certainly one of the busiest pubs in Sherborne. Once upon a time it used to be one of the more run-down pubs in Sherborne, now it is one of the best. Not only is it a very civilised place to go for a drink, but it has excellent food. Michael & Nick were together at The Rose & Crown in Trent and now they are here at The Plume. It is a surprisingly roomy place, with two comfortable drawing rooms, a large dining room and, when the weather permits, a very attractive garden full of tables and chairs for al fresco dining. They also have a few cosy rooms for overnight stays.
One of the main attractions is, of course, the food. Michael is a talented chef and the food is always good. Their speciality is “Italian-style “small plates” (i.e. tapas!). One can order a selection of dishes and, more often than not, share them around the table. There is a selection of antipasti; quite a few vegetarian dishes; quite a few fish; some meat; pasta and desserts. Their menu is available here. Service is quick, friendly and informed.
