The Plume of Feathers Information


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, as well as an idyllic courtyard and four large newly refurbished B&B rooms. However, the main feature of staying with us at The Plume is, just downstairs, you can enjoy some of the best food and drink you'll find in Dorset. We serve 'Italian Small Plates' that is all freshly made in house, 60 Italian wines by the glass, an abundance of Italian themed cocktails as well as local ales and ciders. The pub is perfectly located in the heart of Sherborne with Sherborne Abbey opposite the inn, Sherborne Schools, the independent shops of Cheap Street, the two castles, the countryside, the main line train station are all a short walk away. As well as it's location within Sherborne, it also provides a great base to venture further afield for day trips to the Jurassic Coast, Bath, Shaftesbury, Stourhead, Glastonbury, Longleat, Dorchester and so much more. The pub is closed on Sundays and Mondays, however, the rooms remain open with check-ins, check-outs and breakfasts available 7 days a week.

Booking Terms and Conditions


The bar and restaurant are accessible to all. However, all rooms are situated on the first floor of the building and require guests to use stairs.


  • Road from Sherborne (0.0 km)
    The Plume has an enviable position directly opposite Sherborne Abbey at the southern end of the town. From all directions, follow signs for either Sherborne Abbey or Sherborne Train Station and you can't miss The Plume on Half Moon Street across the Green from the Abbey.
  • Road from Car Park (0.0 km)
    Spaces for our B&B guests are provided in The Half Moon Car Park. Head down the archway between us and The Half Moon (our neighbouring pub) and park in one of the last six spaces marked for the use of the guests of The Plume of Feathers.
  • Train from Sherborne Train Station (0.5 km)
    The Plume is a short walk from the Sherborne Train Station on the mainline between London and Exeter. As you leave the station, walk to the left of Pageant Gardens heading straight along Digby Road towards the Abbey directly in front of you. At the end of the road, you will reach Half Moon Street, turn right and The Plume is 20 metres on the right.
