“A Real Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed at the Plume of Feathers last weekend when visiting Cornwall for a wedding. From the outset the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are tastefully done, fresh and inviting. Whilst we didn't eat in the restaurant, the ambiance and decor was very welcoming.

Thank you so much Paul and team. We'll see you again.

Four of us had steaks and puds, and a couple of bottles of a good Merlot. Food much better than 'pub-grub'. Service was polite and gently efficient. Plenty of space between tables, in a warm and comfortable room. The general atmosphere make this a 'must return to' restaurant.

I have just had a wonderful few days with some very special friends at the Plume of Feathers. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean, fresh and pleasant to spend time in. Food was also very very good. As a vegetarian, who does not eat any dairy, nothing was too much trouble. The chef provided fantastic food which was delicious. I usually have problems finding somewhere that is able to provide a decent meal. All of the staff were friendly and helpful.
As this trip was a special one, it was important that the venue was right, and this one could not have been better. Another visit will definitely be planned.

Paul and his team couldn't do more to make you feel welcome and provide great service. The rooms, inn and restaurant are great. An ideal spot for visiting beaches, the Plume is a real hidden gem. Breakfasts are a particular highlight - everything you might fancy from the full Cornish to baker Tom's cinnamon bread and ultra freshly squeezed orange. The scallops and pork loin were 2 of my favourites - our teenagers favoured the Plume burger and the gnocchi. Great value too, definitely recommended for couples and grown up families who enjoy fab food in a lovely setting.

Room Tip: All lovely, with beautiful iron bedsteads. The family room is my favourite.

I was a little apprehensive at first but when me and my partner arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and showed to our room which was an upgrade to our original booking. We stayed in the "Hen House" which had impeccable cleanliness , the room was very warm and cosy and the bed very comfortable , in the morning we went for our breakfast in the conservatory was given excellent choice and the food was great, we will be returning hopefully before the year is out and hopefully for a longer stay as we only had one night there due to work commitments , it is quite close to town also, im a very very fussy person when staying away from home but this place was great !!

I would highly recommend staying here. Great accommodation, great food (breakfast and evening meal in the pub), good choice of menu, friendly, helpful and welcoming service. Staff went out of their way to make sure we git the things we needed. Will definitely stay here again when we are in this area again.

A 16th Century coaching inn set in the leafy village of Mitchell, The Plume of Feathers is a destination restaurant with AA 4 star rooms. Located just off the A30 we are ideally placed for exploring Newquay, The Eden Project and Truro. Our menu takes inspiration from the great Cornish larder using fresh fish, locally reared meats and small organic suppliers.With its roaring log fires, beamed ceilings and friendly, cosy ambience on one side and a cool, contemporary conservatory space on the other, the Plume of Feathers is the ideal venue for many occasions. Why not take breakfast in the conservatory from 9am? Or pop in for lunch in the beer garden (if the weather allows!) Or how about dinner next to the warm log burner on a cold winter's day? Serving fabulous food all-day everyday of the year, we have a space to suit your every mood.Our seasonal menu and twice daily changing specials use the very best local and organic ingredients. Head chef, Rich Humphries, has long established himself in Cornwall for cooking classic British dishes with a modern influence. Rich and his passionate team love using the freshest fish, traceable/properly reared meats and fine fruit and vegetables - some of which come from Mitchells' own fruit farm. ... more   less
