It's a nice pub with a fire. Food is OK but was just a little disappointed as my chicken and bacon club sandwich was so dry, had to dip it in mayo to enjoy it. I know this is down to preference and some might like it like that but too dry for me, especially with all that bread and... More

I was recommended to this establishment. I thought it was a bit expensive for what we received. The food was average. The mash was not too good. I had lamb shank and mash,I had this in wetherspoons in tower bridge and it was great there. A bit disappointed.

We went with family who had very young children, unfortunately although our order was taken very quickly the food took almost an hour to arrive and when it did the Yorkshire Puddings were badly burnt. We considered the food to only be of average quality but greatly over price. We enjoy visiting this pub in the summer as the have... More

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
