“1445 Sunday, its raining, and we're hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Already missed the lunch hours at another establishment close by (by a minute and they wouldn't accommodate). We were heading to a friends place at Flushing and wanted to get some lunch before lobbing up. The staff were very friendly and let us know that it was only roasts, ie pork, beef but also included stuffed chicken breast. The meal was awesome; really cooked well, loads of vegies, and only GBP$7.95? (dont know how they make a profit?) Its a small place so it may not cater too well for large numbers. Thanks Plume of Feathers, next time I'm around you're on the list.

“Long wait at busy times!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

After having received some positive feedback regarding the quality of the food at this venue, I recently visited The Plume of Feathers with my husband for a meal. I had pre-booked our table and arrived in plenty of time, announced our arrival and decided to get a drink first. We received a warm reception and was advised to sit where we wanted, when we were ready. There were two people at one table and a family of four adults and two children at another table in a restaurant that had approximately a dozen tables of varying size. We sat down and the waitress brought us the menu. Shortly afterwards she took our order and said that there may be a little wait for the food as there were others also waiting for their food. I assumed that she was referring to the other two occupied tables and said that was fine. What I didn't realise was that, as well as cooking for the occupied tables in the restaurant, the chef was cooking bar meals as well (of which there were quite a few) and, as everything was obviously cooked freshly, we ended up waiting 45 minutes for our order to arrive (exactly one hour after arriving at the restaurant)! As the kitchen was attached to the restaurant and open plan we were able to watch everything that was going on. To their credit, the chef and the waitress worked really hard but, as there were only the two of them, food delivery was slow. When our food arrived the waitress was very apologetic for the delay and said that they had "not expected it to get so busy so early". The food was generally good and there was plenty of it but not sure if it was worth the 45minute wait! We finished with a coffee and was unable to eat the chocolate mint as that was white (left near heat) and unedible. This was not the fault of the chef or the waitress as they had been put under pressure but the management seemed to be very relaxed about everything and concentrated on their bar customers rather than being a little more 'hand on' throughout the whole establishment. I am unsure whether, at extremely busy times, there are more chefs available to work but, based on our experience, we do not see how our chef would manage if there had been more than three tables occupied in the restaurant.
