The Plume shakes things up in the kitchen with brand new menu

19th February 2019

Our renowned Cornish pub is shaking things up with a brand-new menu as former executive chef Nat Tallents takes on an exciting new role.

Nat, previously a contestant on BBC’s Masterchef: The professionals, has now taken on a full-time position at The Plume as chef patron.

Previously executive chef of The Plume and sister hotel Lewinnick Lodge in Newquay, Nat says she’s buzzing to take on the new role, which will see her focus on the one venue.

She said: “I am really excited to take on the chef patron here at The Plume. Learning to cook in the north, I spent a lot of time in gastro pubs and destination pubs, so being here feels like a home away from home.

“I feel my role as executive chef has taught me so much about the business side of the industry and now I can bring in all this knowledge, combined with a more hands-on kitchen approach, to make The Plume something really special.

“The Plume is a great place and has a lot of potential, so I really want it to stand proud and carve its own reputation as the ultimate gastro pub dining experience in Cornwall.”

Already curating a host of signature dishes using locally-sourced ingredients (including from The Plume’s store of home-grown produce), Nat says that guests planning to dine at the 16thCentury coaching inn can expect ‘honest, homemade and inspiring modern-British cuisine’, with a menu that celebrates Cornish heritage.

She said:“I love Cornwall, the diversity of the staff and the customers.

“The produce is so amazing, there are so many niche suppliers and interesting products.

“I do feel there are a lot less dining pubs in Cornwall compared to Yorkshire and hopefully we can really up the standard of pub food in the area and make Cornwall a real foodie destination.”

The Plume of Feathers is located in the heart of the Cornish countryside, just off the A30 and minutes from the bustling hub of Truro.

Combining the luxury of a modern getaway with the historic beauty of a traditional Cornish pub, The Plume is the perfect location for the intrepid explorer, artistic muser or fatigued city-slicker, offering a heart-warming menu, cosy ambience and designer bedrooms.
