SquareMeal Review of The Plume of Feathers

Roaring log fires and beamed ceilings are reminders that this was originally a 16th-century coaching inn, but an airy conservatory dining room and stylish accommodation have transformed The Plume of Feathers into a thoroughly modern and smart village rendezvous. After a pint of Doom Bar in the buzzing bar, head to the restaurant and order from a daily changing menu of modern dishes with a sun-kissed Mediterranean edge. Exotically spiced, locally caught sardines with flatbread and tzatziki dressing, home-smoked trout pâté or pea, lemon and basil fritters might make way for a main course of Cornish seafood chowder with garlic crostini, chicken breast wrapped in Parma ham with sauce soubise or a char-grilled burger with smoked Cheddar, barbecue relish and hand-cut chips. For afters, Mitchell mess is a local take on the classic dessert.

About The Plume of Feathers

Nestled away in the picturesque Cornish countryside, The Plume of Feathers is a cosy 16th century coaching inn. Based in the small village of Mitchell near Newquay, the pub offers an appealing food menu throughout the day alongside a variety of drinks and also features several luxurious bedrooms for those wanting to stay. The Plume of Feathers balances elements of a traditional country pub with a slick contemporary restaurant setting, to create somewhere that's great for all occasions, whether that be a comfy afternoon pint or an indulgent three-course dinner.

The Plume of Feather’s painted white exterior screams traditional pub with lanterns hanging from the walls and a bold sign displayed on the side. However, once you head inside everything about the inn is rather chic while some original features still remain; oak beams stretch across the ceiling of the main pub area, while an exposed brick fireplace is the perfect place to crowd around for a drink or two. Meanwhile a separate conservatory area is flooded with light during the days and features plenty of greenery. For warmer days, there’s a leafy beer garden out the back, which makes an idyllic al fresco dining spot.

Head chef Andrew Dudley’s seasonal food menu champions local produce, and everything prepared from scratch in the kitchen ensuring all dishes are incredibly fresh. Starters on offer might include Cornish duck pâté served with onion marmalade and sourdough toast, and 7-day salt beef with pickled onion, gherkins, mustard and crispy onions. Hearty main courses range from a traditional steak and kidney pie with mash, to chalk stream trout served with a carrot and honey puree, sweet and sour peppers and a pineapple and pepper ketchup.

There’s plenty by way of drinks at The Plume of Feathers, with a regularly changing selection of local ales on draught, a decent wine list and a variety of different spirits all available.
