The Plume of Feathers in Mitchell sits in the heart of the Cornish countryside – right on a junction of the A30.
Everything about this 16th Century coaching inn suggests quality and attention to detail – from the cosy bar and restaurant with its attached airy conservatory to the 20 luxurious boutique bedrooms, some converted from original buildings such as The Hen House and The Tack Room.
Head chef Andrew Dudley makes the most of fresh, quality, produce, sourced locally, to create exciting seasonal menus and specials and there are plenty of wines, beers, cocktails and non-alcoholic choices to accompany your meal.

Didn’t know the area and had to choose a place to meet between St Mawgan and Mevagissey. Went online and stumbled across this place which had good reviews etc. It didn’t disappoint. During Storm Dennis, so the cosy fires and the friendly staff were very welcome. Food was fabulous. Would highly recommend.

Great location and have always enjoyed going to the Plume of Feathers for a meal however on this occasion the food wasn’t as nice as previous times so a bit disappointed. The area we sat in was extremely hot although the radiator was not turned on and we were unable to open the window as it was fixed.

We were 3 adults and 2 young boys. A very good menu for everyone. Lovely and cosy by an open fire and nice relaxed atmosphere. Our food was delicious and the boys especially enjoyed their chocolate brownie sundaes. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. We all said it was a perfect evening and will definitely go back.

The Plume of Feathers is a fantastic place to eat with family, friends or have business meetings. I came yesterday with my colleagues and we were placed in a suitable table away from the rest of the restaurant, so that we were able to conduct our business meeting in privacy. Service and thought like this is second to none! I always recommend the Plume of Feathers to everyone as they are always consistent with their service and food quality. Will most definitely be coming back, mostly likely in the near future!!

Very disappointing evening! It was streak night so we decided to try the Rump steak we could not eat it as it was tuff full of gristle, my husbands steak was not cooked to how he had asked, the waitress took it back and it was reheated but it was still raw, inedible also the steaks were smothered in green herbs which it had not stated that on the menu. I order a sauce at an additional cost of £3.50 and it was just another 2 dessert spoons in the smallest pot! Well needless to say we could not eat it even though they asked if they could replace it! Our evening had been ruined we would of had a sweet but were not offered so we left!😕

It’s the third time both myself and my partner have dined at The Plume of Feathers and every time the food has been excellent.
The pub itself has a quiet and very cosy atmosphere. Staff are attentive and courteous.
All in all it’s a really nice pub to visit and dine at.

Amazing roast dinner, wonderful friendly and helpful staff who were great with my children. A great experience. One of the best parts was for once a roast dinner out with beautifully cooked roast potatoes, always end up with undercooked flavourless potatoes but these were just perfect. 😍

This is a lovely intimate pub restaurant, although there was a small party seated behind us it wasn't too noticeable. I had the beef shin which came with mash and kale, would really have enjoyed something other than the kale as it didn't compliment the dish at all (in my opinion) but the mash was sublime, could have eaten loads of it! I had the sticky toffee pudding which was lovely but very sweet, a little too sweet for me but for someone with a sweet tooth it would be perfect. Two of us said we wished we had ordered the parfait which looked amazing and the person who ordered it said that the taste lived up to the presentation. Two of the table had the curry and they enjoyed it a lot apart from one of the accompaniments, which was not so flavoursome. The staff were very welcoming, chatty and attentive and left us to chat for a long time afterwards. Would absolutely book again.

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.

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.
