The Experience

This is a popular bar-restaurant so enjoy being thrown together with diners, children, walkers and their hounds – especially in the summer. The central bar is lively with ales on tap and friendly staff zipping in and out of the kitchen.

Welshman Andrew Dudley heads up the kitchen which showcases modern dishes using local-as-can-be produce; try Cornish fish and homemade pies, lunchtime sandwiches and delicious puddings – just the sort of gastro-grub you want after a breezy walk around nearby Ladock Woods. You eat at candle-studded pine tables in front of the wood-burner or in the huge, airy conservatory.

You’re halfway between Newquay and Truro with wild surfing beaches to the north and gentle bucket-and-spade ones to the south plus heaps of Cornish highlights – Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and Gardens, Tehidy Woods – within a 30-minute drive. Head back for a deep sleep in boutique bedrooms dotted around the grounds in the converted barns, stables and hen houses.

Who'd have thought such a gorgeous boutique pub with outstanding pub dining would be hidden away in the tranquil village of Mitchell? Still close to Newquay too. Just just far enough from the beach crowds in Summer. Highly recommended.

Michael, Godalming

The surroundings were spectacular a true hidden gem. Much like the dining brilliant local ingredients with really imaginative combinations.

Alice, Churchtown

We really enjoyed our stay here: food was delicious, rooms were comfortable and the staff were very helpful. It's the perfect spot to explore much of Cornwall before returning for a very comfortable (and eco) night's sleep.

The neighbourhood

Just off the A30 in the quiet (now that the bypass skims around it) village of Mitchell, equidistant between Newquay and Truro you’ll find The Plume. This is prime cycling country with lots of routes and good walks all around you, try the easy five-mile circular at Ladock Woods (10-minute drive) or nip up to iconic Fistral beach in Newquay to catch some waves. A visit to the St Austell Brewery (40-minutes) is good for craft beer fans while Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and Gardens and Tehidy Woods are all within half an hour’s drive.

Local points of interest from Daniel Trotter

  • The Plume of Feathers was originally a 16th century coaching inn which has been lovingly renovated, bridging the gap between boutique B&B and traditional Cornish Pub.
  • Part of the restaurant is actually built directly over a natural spring well. Do you dare to gaze through the glass into its depths below? Come take a look next time you are visiting.
  • Centered between Newquay and Truro, just off the A30, The Plume of Feathers is the perfect location for exploring everything Cornwall has to offer. The Eden project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, beaches and shops are just a stones throw away.


Daniel Trotter

Pete and Jacqui originally set up Lewinnick Lodge and The Plume of Feathers but have since handed it over to their son, Daniel. Their staff are friendly, passionate and love the local area as much as guests will.
