Sunday lunch one of the more pleasurable meals of the week, not at the Plume of Feathers though. I ordered lamb which was so tough it was inedible,(I even asked my wife to try and cut it with no success). This is not a problem sometimes meat is not as good as the restaurant would like it to be, though... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here on a Friday evening and although the pub was busy, we did not have any complaints about the service. Friendly staff and some great food. Go hungry as the portions are not stingy! Nice choice menu, with vegetarian options plus a specials board. There has to be something for everyone here. Lovely old pub... More

We went to the Plume recently for a mid week treat and had a lovely time. Four of us each had different meals and we were all pleased with our choices. The lamb pie was tender, the fish beautifully cooked, the steak was perfect for medium rare and the curry had just the right amount of spice. Stu served us... More

Visited with Friends,service a tad slow, We had to keep asking for drinks,menus etc. Waited a long while for waitress to take order. Food was quite a while coming.Generally food ok but not mouthwatering. Not sure if we would go back. I felt the place had lost its edge.

Booked a table here for our Mother's Day meal. Once seated we ordered our starters - scallops, potato skins and a baked Camembert to share. After waiting over 1/2 hour they finally arrived....potato skins burnt and inedible. Then we noticed (after already eating some) that the Camembert was in fact over a week OUT OF DATE!! Waiting a further 15... More

Went here for an evening meal with 2 friends, food not bad and reasonable price. The pub is in need of a complete refurbishment, it's a lovely old building but is desperate for a facelift. Staff were pleasant and service was good.
