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 visited the Plume of Feathers during our holiday in Cornwall - we had the Malaysian Chicken and a Steak and the cherry tart for dessert and it was all fantastic. The steak in particular was very well cooked - and the tart with the cherry amaretti ice cream was amazing. We were particularly impressed with the service from the young waiter and waitress who served us - both very bright, friendly and smiley (we eat out a lot and it’s rare to have such good service in many places local to us!). Sorry we didn’t get their names but the young man had dark hair and glasses and the young lady was blonde (may have also worn glasses). Would highly recommend and will visit again if we are staying in the area in the future.

Lovely place and light and airy room. Friendly and polite enough staff.
Overall menu/food outside of breakfast, better than that of Lewnnick Lodge (still decent), it saddens me to say.
Service a bit on the slow side. 1 hour before main course arrived, but was worth the wait. Starter portion was tiny though.. just one piece of breaded camembert! So full after main course couldn't eat dessert :)
For the second year in succession though (probably due to covid) my bottle of Erdinger wheat beer was out of date, but tasted okay 👍

Fabulous Sunday lunch. Food amazing, young staff all very attentive, polite and helpful.
Pleased we were seated inside the old part of the pub/restruant as the large conservatory was noisy. Will return.

Lovely setting, good food and great service. Unfortunately the acoustics in the conservatory meant it was noisy. We were just four people on a table but we found it difficult to hear each other speak.

Our main meal was excellent good value for money. I had veggie curry & my husband had fish & chips. Desert was also extremely nice. It’s not far from us & we have used this place to eat loads of times, even had Xmas party there.

Have been here plenty of times before and loved it. However this visit want great. Our cola and lime and soda was flat and was told it's not flat. The waitress knocked the money off the bill but all we wanted was a fizz to our drinks. When I say it's flat, it's flat. She wouldn't have it and would not change them.
I had soup and and a sandwich the soup was tepid and too thick. I hope this was because of staff shortages and not a view of things for good. I will return and hope things go back to their normal high standard.

Best burger I’ve ever had! It’s important that food is served piping hot to me and this place does that. The pamesan and truffle “Posh Fries” were amazing! Loved it! We’re on holiday down here but we would definitely recommend and visit again!

We've been three times now in two weeks and it's easily our favourite place to eat. We've had breakfast, dinner and Sunday lunch and all have been delicious! I just wish it was closer to home but we'll be back next year.

Our waitress was new and was a little u sure of herself. Nevertheless she did pretty well. This is the only reason I dropped one star on service. We will definitely be back. Great food great portions great quality and a fair price. Nothing more to say really. Thankyou

Lovely food and service. The drinks were overpriced especially lime and soda!
The fans in the conservatory were so loud that conversation was very difficult.
Will come again as it has excellent wheelchair access.
