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.

    We ate in the sun room which is lovely! But the noise was overwhelming! As there were two large party’s As we are seniors are hearing is not quite as good as the youngsters so found it hard having chit chat between us ! Did ask when we arrived if there was a table in the other part of pub ! But no joy as they were all taken !

    A nice ambience, good service and mostly good food. I had a Sunday roast with a ton of exceptionally nice vegetables but the roast potatoes were a bit disappointingly dry.

    The food was good but the service let it down. Had to wait a long time to be greater at door even though staff walked past. Then again a long wait for drinks and for order to be taken. Main order was taken incorrectly. Half of main food came before the other half and then alone was incorrect. It wasn’t busy in the dining room either.

    Had a nice Mother’s Day lunch, roast was delicious with great selection of vegetables and presentation was lovely. Service was fairly slow, large table in but felt slightly forgotten about. Can’t fault the food in terms of flavour, presentation and choice. Sunday lunch fixed price was reasonably priced… however the childrens menu needs some attention. £5 for a “popsicle” is outrageous. A child’s starter, half roast and that dessert option would be £17.50 which seems incredibly expensive.

    Eaten here many times before and always been pleased. However had mussels yesterday, that were very small, over cooked, flavourless sauce, small portion with one slices of slightly stale sourdough bread and chips. Very disappointing, didn’t complain at the time as I didn’t want to embarrass friend who was paying.

    This used to be a "local" pub and restaurant. It would appear that this is now a restaurant with a bar. There is very little atmosphere and beer was poor (we understand that the lines were not cleaned((properly)) No steak knife offered and it was too late by the time the server returned to the table. There was an accident with one meal so we had to wait for that to be rectified by which time one meal had lost heat. However, the food was nice but not a place I shall be returning to in the near future.

    The new conservatory is quite noisy with back ground chatter due to its size and open space. Can’t comment on the other areas but they liked a bit more intimate. Food was very well presented and great quality A lovely pub, but I would suggest asking for anywhere other than the new conservatory if you want a quieter more relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend the food and service.

    We had a lovely evening, and when I had booked the table I'd commented that my husband and I were both celebrating our birthdays. What a lovely touch that the staff had written a birthday card and put it on our table for when we arrived ! Just that little extra touch means a lot. The food was delicious and the service excellent, our waitress was charming . We look forward to visiting again next time we're in Cornwall.

    Really nice spur of the moment Sunday dinner. Hadn’t eaten here for some years, don’t know why?? Food was lovely, a tad salty for me, but not so much to ruin the food. Good value and a great selection for both the roast and non roast meals, staff were all lovely and always on hand if you needed anything. Will definitely be returning on a regular basis.

    Excellent food and reception and waiting staff were friendly and polite. We were originally booked into the conservatory but there was quite a noisy large party in there. We requested a table in another part of the restaurant and this was quickly and nicely arranged. We could still hear the noise from the conservatory but it was much more muted. We would have struggled to enjoy our meal if we had not moved. For future visits we will ask for a table in the old part of the restaurant. We have eaten in the conservatory before without any problems so this is not a criticism just a note that smaller parties may be more comfortable in a quieter area. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will recommend to others, as well as return.

    We were sat in the bar area, which we did not book (resteraunt). We had no plates with our starter board, the steaks we took most home for our dogs as full of fat and gristle and at £25 each expect better, and we were forgotten by all the staff and sat next the the noisiest table which i think was a stag do but then they were in the bar so why shouldn't they make a noise. The manager did take £10 off the bill but don't put people in the bar if they have booked a table not in the bar. Am local and won't go again
