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 were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a tasty meal. The dining area was very quiet, with few people due to the ongoing Covid situation. As it transpired, the establishment was going to close completely the next morning. Despite this, the staff went about their work with their usual efficiency

We have dined in this restaurant many times and we are never disappointed. Food is great, service is friendly, efficient and discrete. Ambience is welcoming, open fires make the dining rooms cosy and inviting. Noise levels are acceptable and you never have to raise your voice to be heard. The procedures in place for protection from COVID are spot on and we felt safe there.

The service was very slow and whilst I appreciate they were busy all tables had been pre booked so the managers were aware of numbers and still did not have enough staff, it was over an hour before we saw any food on our table. Once the food arrived my friends fish and chips had dry peas, one fish was twice the size of his wife’s and the chips were nothing special - couldn’t see where the triple cooked came from. Overall disappointing but this is not the first time I’ve been disappointed with the plume but it will be my last

Fantastic service and menu. We all had different tastes and were all well catered for.
Being plant based can be problematic and boring however I had a lovely vegan Thali Friday night and a nut roast for Sunday lunch.
For the rest of our party they had fish dishes and steak.
All of the suppliers are listed and local.
Can’t wait to visit again soon

We had the Christmas menu. The mains and dessert were amazing. However, we felt that the starters didn't really add much. The service was excellent and the staff incredibly personable. A great experience overall. Only reason for score of 4 instead of 5, was the starter dishes.

Lovely meal and as usual much better than its sister pub near Newquay. Very pleasant service, lots of veg to go with the turkey, extra gravy served in a little saucepan just in case (nice touch) and a good price, what more could you ask?

Alas vegetables rather cool & although the braised beef brisket was tasty it was still very tough.

Good but rather disappointing.

As usual the food and service were excellent but the prices are getting too high.. £16.00 for steak and Kidney pie that would cost £12.00 or 13.00 elsewhere and was no better quality wise.
Will have to think twice about coming back which is a real shame!!

The Open Table booking system worked very well and we were seated quickly, the drinks arrived swiftly and we were allowed as long as we wanted to select our menu. Overall we felt very relaxed with the covid regime in place, it allowed us to enjoy our company and meal whilst feeling safe. The food was excellent and wonderfully presented as always.
