A Celebratory Lunch at the Plume of Feathers

The weekend before last Rich and I took our families to view and book our wedding venue. It was a very drizzly day but after an exciting morning we decided to check out one of the local pubs for a celebration lunch. I had noticed the Plume of Feathers on the way, in a very beautiful country setting so that is where we settled. The Plume of Feathers is a 17th century traditional country pub, lovely stone floors and lots of light. Dad ordered a bottle of Prosecco to toast the day and we debated what to eat.

The food is mostly pub grub, with sandwiches, baked potatoes and ploughmans but they also do have a  restaurant menu as well as a pub one and also a pizza menu. We mostly all settled on paninis or baked potatoes with bowls of chips to dip in to for extra munchies. I chose a bacon and brie panino and Rich went for the burger.

The portions were all really generous and we definitely left the pub feeling stuffed and happy. The chips were the stars of the show here though, lovely skin on chips with lots of flavour, mum even described them as some of the best chips she'd ever had, coming from a chip enthusiast that is praise indeed. Definitely keen to revisit the Plume of Feathers it had such a welcoming atmosphere, great country pub to stop at for a leisurely lunch, very much recommended.
