Glad to report that Steve of N21's informative review is still current.The traditional interior is enhanced by an inglenook fire by the bar ,and this is the area to gather if drinking but not eating.Only three handpumps working on my trip with Adnams Broadside and Courage Best as regulars and Mighty Oak Alfa Romeo as a guest,which I enjoyed.
I was impressed by the food ,which is home cooked,no Brakes Bros involvement here,and was substantial.Sunday roast at £10 was very good value.They feature Black Rock Grills where you cook your own meat/fish on baking hot stones,besides pub staples with a few specials of the day.The only slight fly in the ointment was overloud musak,so out of keeping with the surroundings.However that won't stop me returning for good food and beer,which is rare this close to Harlow.

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..
