Situated in the heart of Hungerford, an idyllic market town with a vibrant community spirit, The Plume has recently been refurbished by new owners Diggy and Fluey who have lived in Hungerford all their lives. Heading up a friendly team, Diggy and Fluey welcome locals and visitors to enjoy tasty fare in a relaxed ambience. The pub is modern and beautifully furnished, while still retaining many traditional features such as exposed beams and bay windows, all adding to the warm and cosy atmosphere within.
A welcome landmark on the charming High Street, The Plume serves the finest quality, locally sourced produce where possible, offering unique tapas and à la carte menus that diners are sure to enjoy. The Secret Smokehouse cured salmon comes with lemon, shallots and rye bread, while the comforting bubble and squeak is served with a poached duck egg, providing a satisfying start to your meal. The mains include a hearty slow-cooked beef shin ragu served on pappardelle with Berkswell cheese, as well as a flavoursome Thai green curry which is available with or without chicken should you wish to plump for the vegetarian option. For dessert, the sticky toffee pudding comes highly recommended, as does the American-style baked cheesecake. A dedicated lunch menu offers a great range of options, including baguettes, sandwiches and burgers. Why not visit on Sunday and try the popular Sunday roast?
Adding a welcome contemporary twist to the traditional offering, head chef Arek has introduced a tapas menu that takes inspiration from all over the world. The menu is perfect for sharing and each dish is prepared using meat and fish smoked and prepared on-site every day. Try Spanish favourites such as gambas pil pil – king prawns sautéed in garlic and chilli, lemon or parsley sauce and chorizo braised in cider – the perfect pairing of sweet and spicy Spanish sausage together with the well-loved West Country tipple. For delectable food, a great range of drinks and a friendly, laid-back vibe, look no further.
