We stayed at the Plume of feathers (in the Bunkhouse) for two nights while we did a trek across Dartmoor for charity. This is a difficult review to write as some things about the plume were fantastic: The evening meals were very good (vegetable lasagne is highly recommended), the bar staff and the younger staff serving breakfast were very courteous and helpful and the way dogs are accommodated in the rooms, pub and grounds is brilliant. However our experience here was marred by two things: The room in the bunkhouse was cheap but far less than cheerful, with sheets on the beds that did not fit, doors you cannot lock when out and less room to move around than you'll find inside your average cupboard. Now we have travelled a bit and we know that staying in bunkhouses is not going to be luxurious, but this was not good. The service at breakfast was severely disjointed; I had finished eating a cooked breakfast when my wife received her cereal, the milk for which arrived about ten minutes later. We got our tea 45 minutes after our breakfast and our Orange juice arrived around noon (only kidding, it was very late arriving and it felt like an age because the female bar manager gave us some angry looks and mumbled curses for daring to ask for it). Overall if you are visiting Dartmoor a stay here should not be out of the question, just pay a little more for the better rooms (our friend stayed in one during this visit and was very happy!) and avoid the breakfast farce.
