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.

Lovely place-we used to come here regularly when we lived nearby and it’s still the same great food and service. We came for a birthday celebration and had a lovely Sunday lunch. So nice to see a set price for either the 2 or 3 course meal which was very good value. We will be back. Many thanks.

We came in for lunch on Saturday the conservatory was quiet .
A glass of water was knocked over but no help was offered by the staff to clean up !
We were eventually asked if we would like drinks ( waitress didn’t no what bitters were on offer ! ) and the food was delivered ( all good as usual )
Although the place was quiet we had to chase the waitress for more drinks .
The treacle tart was my dessert choice and I asked for it to be hot .
It arrived cold !
We will be back of course but this was not up to your usual standards this time 🙁

Booking app was simple to use which is great.Parking is a breeze, lots of spaces. Welcomed with a big smile which is lovely and given the table we wanted, love the area with the open fire, such a nice place to eat. Service was excellent as always and the food is fantastic, who would have thought Honeycomb goes with duck Pate. Just fabulous

We are regular visitors and the food is always a high standard. My rump steak was perfectly cooked and my wife's Malaysian fish curry was tasty and well seasoned. There was an unfortunate mix up in one of our orders which resulted in a longer than usual wait for our food. However that will not detract us from returning.

Lovely meal with my partner and my two children.
We had Sunday roast and it was delicious and it was a nice change for all the trimmings to be automatically served with the meal as most restaurants now want you to add cauliflower cheese and root veg mash as extras. Every element was yummy.

The kids meals were good too - especially the cauliflower cheese bites, which even my picky eaters enjoyed.

To celebrate my 78th birthday my friend and I each had the pumpkin soup for starters and found it lightly spiced and delicious, a generous bowlful that stayed warm to the last drop. Next I opted for the duck pate, which I thought a tad bland for my taste, and somewhat overpowered by the other flavours on the plate. I loved the idea of the honeycomb, and the salad dressing was an inspiration. My friend had the cauliflower cheese, and declared it delightfully different from the original. Neither of us possessing large appetites, we skipped straight to dessert and had our favourite: sticky toffee pudding. It was as good as we have had anywhere.
Service was excellent, our only complaint was the noise level caused by screaming children in the glass covered area, acoustics are not great there.
