It's hard to believe the Plume of Feathers in Mitchell was once a run down local. Everything about this 16th Century coaching inn suggests quality and attention detail. From the cosy restaurant serving superb home cooked food to a modern looking bar with a good selection of local ales and friendly attentive service. Head chef Rich Humphries uses the best in local produce to create an exciting seasonal menu as well as a specials board that changes twice daily. Throughout the year local farmers will drop by offering the freshest ingredients the Cornish countryside has to offer including rabbit, pigeon, pheasant and deer. Fresh Cornish seafood also features heavily on the day's specials. The Plume also boasts AA 4 star, boutique lettings rooms converted from historic barns and outhouses.

Food was lovely, very sweet touch was the birthday card and box of fudge. Shame that there is no disabled parking, we had to park half way up a steep hilly car park which was full of potholes and uneven. Not great for a mobility challenged person.

There was a good menu choice and the food was well cooked on the whole. [Bread pudding starter was pretty tasteless] Service very friendly and helpful. Prices comparable to similar restaurants. A nice setting.

We had a very enjoyable evening and each found her choice of food deliciously to her liking.
I should prefer an establishment without background music or dogs but neither of those was especially intrusive.

Booked table for Christmas Eve dinner. Lovely ambiance seated in the old part of the Coaching Inn next to a cheerfully warm logburner. Service was good without being intrusive and the food was delicious. The whole evening experience was great and at a very reasonable price too. Will definitely visit again when in the Newquay area.

Always a consistent standard. I always find that the food is great, the staff are polite and everything is clean. Toilets are very plush these days. Don't change a thing. Our family stop here on our way back to Penzance when we go away. It is yet to disappoint. I really like that you can choose between bar and restaurant to eat.

Decided on last minute Sunday roast and the Plume of Feathers never fails to please. When seated we were offered water for the table and this arrived immediately. My husband ordered beef roast and I had pork. Really delicious. We decided on dessert - my husband had sticky toffee - he wanted more- and I had chocolate tart, also delicious. The staff were attentive and there is always a good atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend.

Wouldn't recommend based on Monday "Chefs night off" syndrome. May be better otherwise... One of the specials was "off" by 6.45 followed swiftly by one of the sweets. Food a bit second rate and my Hot Belly Pork served with hot mash and hot greens was plonked for some unearthly reason, on a bed of coleslaw! Terrible idea. And it all seemed a bit reheated.
Couple of the staff fairly inexperienced and messed up a drink order for ONE drink. Another drink came in a bottle that was 2 months out of code, as was all similar stock....
Fortunately a couple of the staff were warm, witty and friendly and this covered a multitude of sins on the night, but in the cold light of day, it used to be a lot better foodwise.
Perhaps they've concentrated on the rooms too much.

Food was good and service was very good. A little disappointed because we were asked when booking whether the meal was for a special occasion and we said it was for a birthday.

Both starters were "thin on taste & thin on size & quality" . We ordered wine which took about 20 minutes to arrive , which was not what we ordered. I sent back the bottle & we waited another 15 minutes for the first wine to be replaced! By which time we had had enough of very poor Service. Our main courses were nothing special, so we left very disappointed.

First time visit we booed at short notice and ate early (6.00pm). Place very quiet so we rattled round on our own in the conservatory. People very friendly and efficient, not massive choice of food (bettter than having too much! and what we chose was excellent. Maybe wine list could do with couple of choices at slightly cheaper end of scale (£15-20 a bottle maybe).

Bottom line will definitely go again and next time take ssome friends as I think they will also be impressed.
