user reviews of Plume of Feathers, Gilston

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Another roadside pub seemingly popular with diners. Ales were fairly mainstream - Courage Best, Wells Bombardier Glorious English & Adnams Broadside. There is a nice fenced garden with an aviary. A larger nearby garden had a deflated bouncy castle, presumably left over from the previous bank holiday weekend. I believe there was a separate restaurant. Although most people appeared to be eating in the bar. Nice building. But there are better places locally for a wider selection of ales.

Have been going here for a few years now, mainly for a late lunch, as it serves food all day. Standard beers are Adnams and Courage..........but made up for with one or two guest ales.
Although food quality is excellent I wish they would change the menu. The bar menu, which has not changed for a long, long time, is very limited. The specials board and A la carte meals are much more expensive.
Well worth a visit.

The Plume and Feathers is an attractive roadside pub, situated in the village of Gilston just north of Harlow. Internally it has three connected bar areas mainly aligned for dining, two larger ones at the front of the pub and a smaller section to the back of the bar on the way out to the outside area.
It’s comfortable if not a bit dark internally but this pub scores from having a really nice outside patio area. This is in two sections with an upper part providing several round metallic tables and chairs and then a lower larger section of bench seats covered by two jumbo umbrellas with the additional feature of an aviary containing budgies.
And then also there is a separate larger grassed area behind the car park with several additional bench seats.
It has an extensive menu and looks like a bit of a ‘foodie’ pub. However we visited at lunchtime and only tried the sandwich menu, which was very good in quantity and quality.
I think it’s a Free House as I couldn’t see any brewery branding but not totally sure . There were four Real ales during my visit, Adnams Broadside, Courage Best, and then a couple I haven’t come across before, The Rev. James , a dark beer from The Brains Brewery and a blonde beer, Buntingford Polar Star from the local Royston based Micro brewery. The Polar Star was a nice pint for a sunny lunchtime.
So in conclusion I found The Plume and Feathers to be a decent pub with good ales and good food.
