Living quite local, we have passed this place many times and always said " we should try there" so between Christmas and New Year, that is what we did. Three of us ordered paella, what came was rice, with peas, some prawns, some chicken and chorizo. This was not close to passing as paella, but i must say the rice... More

We visited on Sunday for lunch, food was ok, but we waited 45 mins for food even though our table was booked for midday.

Went here in the 60's with my then boyfriend when the food was a choice of ham or cheese toasted sandwich and the barmaid was a Hattie Jakes lookalike! Times have changed and for the better food-wise. Excellent menu and the food was nicely cooked. A most pleasant service too. Along with reminiscing about our times back then and wondering... More

Had a very nice lunch here. It's quite a traditional pub with a good range of ales. Nice well priced food and a nice garden. Also plenty of parking.

We celebrated my birthday at the Plume and both had delicious meals. The scollops and chirozo was very tasty as was the beef strogonoff. The service was efficient and friendly. We didn't have to wait for our food and the waitress was very attentive without being intrusive. We will certaimly return.

I don't usually write reviews but I'm so frustrated with this place, it wasted what should have been a lovely day for my partner and I. We went today for the first time in 4 years, apparently the management haven't changed but something most definitely has. It used to be amazing food but I won't be returning again. We were... More

I'm always a bit underwhelmed by this pub but as its close to where I live I pop in every six months or so in the hope that its improved. Don't get me wrong its not awful, but it is pretty average. On the last two occasions (April 16 and Nov 15) I've had Gammon, Egg and Chips which you... More

This is a lovely little pub set in a nice location. There is always something nice to choose from on the menu. I near enough always have steal on the stone, I love it. I think it's one of the only places around that does this sort of dining. Staff all friendly and it's always a good service. I would... More
