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

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

Visit here often, food is always good, not your standard pub chain slop! Black Rock grill is always yum. Landlady is great I wish the son who works here would cheer up though.

Nice location, nice garden but food was average unless you like grissly lamb, burnt Yorkshire pudding and tasteless veg, oh and forget to mention the lukewarm coffee that I complained about, they brought me another one and then charged me for both... go elsewhere, much nicer places to eat locally
