We are a 17th century traditional Cornish coastal pub, offering hand pull beers and great food. Colin & Paul Marriott, yes twins, you're not seeing double, took over the Plume from Graham Thomas in October 2013 after Grahams mighty 35 year reign and are indebted to him for his grace and support. His legacy of a friendly welcoming pub continues to be paramount. We are building a great team here at the Plume.

Dog friendly, good food and beer!

We went for lunch today, wife, 9 year old daughter and 1 year old dachshund. I had the steak, kidney and ale pie with chips and veg, my wife had the Cornish seafood platter and our daughter had cod and chips - just water for Louie the 'daxie'. It was all really good and large quantities... read more

Parking nearby can be a challenge even during the off season for this very popular pub and restaurant which is used as much by the local inhabitants as it is by visitors to the area with all being made to feel welcome. The efficiency of the two staff was impressive for such a busy venue and their knowledge of the... More

From the moment you step inside a friendly welcome awaits. The log fire was burning well and the tempting pie and a pint for £10 per person was too tempting to miss. Steak and ale pie with a rich depth of flavour served with a flaky topper, now usually I do prefer a shortcrust pie but this was very tasty.... More

A lovely local pub frequented by local people and families, as well as tourists. A welcoming fire blazed in the grate and the front of house staff couldn't have been more friendly. We booked a table for the next night and ate good freshly prepared pub grub. A homemade lasagne and standard fish and chips. Very attentive staff. There are... More

Went for Dinner with 4 other family members. Atmosphere friendly and a proper pub with hearty traditional fare, well cooked. Good choice of beer and local produce. Nothing fancy but very satisfying.

We had heard very good things about this pub before popping in for lunch last week. It's a lovely place, with plenty of character, well used by locals and tourists alike and plenty of space for everyone. It's dog-friendly, has a roaring fire in the winter, and a good selection of ales. We were slightly disappointed that the barman didn't... More
