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 was OK; price of soda water @ £3 a pint was exorbitant.

Noise from children was an irritant.

Great traditional pub with traditional food offerings, sometimes served with a modern twist. Lovely spacious seating in the conservatory area. Excellent value for money and great service. My husband loves the modern take on ham, egg and chips.

Good food very tasty well good but I was let down by the portion sizes of the main the almost a fish pie was probably smaller than my starter which was annoying service was super slow and people that came in after us and ordered after us got there food and drinks before us those people were clearly staying there but seemed like they got priority which was again annoying

Lovely pub/ restaurant with great service. I prefer sitting in the pub rather than the conservatory as that’s a bit noisy at times . Great food and good beer.

One of our most favouraite places to eat whenever we're in Cornwall. Hoped we'd see Joe Absolom and his family again this time. Sad that we didn't. As usual the welcome and service was great and my meal was excellent. Sadly. my wife's Chicken and Mushroom pie lacked mushrooms and was a disappointment. But, the waitress repported our comment to the chef and we didn't pay for that part of the meal. We will return and look forward to doing so.

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.

I ordered the beef pie which was fantastic the problem was that was basically it on the plate the pie a little bit of mash some sort of veg that looked like it belonged in a stir fry it needed more, chocolate brownie for desert very small portion still hungry when I left. service was great though.

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!!

I met three friends for lunch and the venue was perfect. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The decor inside the restaurant has been refreshed and it was very attractive and added to the enjoyable atmosphere.
