Plume of Feathers Inn
Ranked #3 of 6 Princetown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 September 2013

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.

We've visited and camped at this pub for many years now and have always been impressed with the standard of food etc. Lovely area, ideal for camping / walking. Very doggy friendly.

While beers and bar are kept very well, the food seems to have gone down hill along with the general clenliness and appearance.

Tables could do with a good scrub, and a lick of paint here and there. Play area needs attention.

I had a 'gourmet' burger, which was alright, but far from gormet, I wouldn't have said homemade either. You can't call a burger with a splash of homemade relish in it gourmet I'm afraid.

A little disappointed this visit.

Went here for an early dinner with my husband after an evening drive across Dartmoor. The restaurant and outside areas were extremely busy, but the service was fast and efficient. My initial choice had sadly run out but my second choice was delicious, as was my husband's. Friendly bar staff and a fabulous selection of local ales.

Always worth a visit.

Great pub with a nice feel. Lots of space and area.

Location is superb - nice and high up - and perfect to walk to / from.

Also a good milestone for a cycle from home!

If you're near, go in here!

Stopped here for some refreshment after a long day out on the moor. The service was friendly and the food reasonably priced. The only downside for us was the out of action play area, it looked like they were repairing and I hope so as this is a 'really nice place usually to bring children.

How one extremely rude member of staff can let the rest of the team down. Younger members of staff pleasant and polite.
Unfortunately after waiting around 50 minutes for the food to arrive, my wife had the audacity to ask about the whereabaouts of our order. Very rude response from older bar lady. Plonked two of our three ordered meals on the table - too much trouble to say sorry for the long wait.

We shall not be back.

We had a party of young people who stayed a couple of nights in the bunkhouse before going off camping - whilst two of us stayed in the Plume all week. The rooms were good value for money if a bit cramped but facilities were clean and comfortable and having the bar and restaurant downstairs was such a temptation if using the spacious shared kitchen was too much of a challenge!
