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.

Food very good, staff friendly, tables nicely distanced in a naturally-lit conservatory. Hand sanitiser placed near the entrance and in toilets but absence of masks.

Food was really good in all respects but the service was only average - it took 3 members of staff to ascertain whether they had any Scotch whiskey!
The atmosphere was somewhat spoilt by a large party of women with 6 babies.
However, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We have not been to Plume since lockdown eased but from previous experience they have definitely upped their game .
The food was excellent and the service was relaxed and by that I mean there was no urgency .
All in all it was a great meal and I would recommend the Plume for a lovely meal .

After staying at The Plume previously we stopped off for breakfast en route to The Lizard for my husband's birthday. Dominika was the perfect waitress, attentive, polite and efficient. When we came to settle our bill we were told it was not necessary as a good gesture for my husband's birthday. We were completely overwhelmed by such kindness and was a really lovely thing to do. Thank you to Dominika! We will definitely be returning again. Thank you!!

We were taken to our table and brought a jug of water. Drinks order was taken first. After a few minutes our food order was taken. It was a Sunday, so roast was on the menu which we both ordered. We had pork. Lovely and tender and large selection of vegetables. Excellent service with friendly staff

The food was alright but served on a cold plate, so the food was not hot enough when it reached us. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful. She said she would mention our problem to the kitchen.

Overall excellent, if I have to find a negative, the wafers in the ice cream were soggy, they should be crisp. Apart from that excellent.
