The Plume of Feathers - Pub in Cornwall

Mitchell, Newquay, TR8 5AX, Cornwall
England, United Kingdom

A 16th-century coaching inn, transformed into a fabulously well-priced foodie pub and bustling real ale bar just off the A30

One wonders what John Wesley would have thought about the place where he used to preach being turned into a stylish pub-restaurant! He certainly wouldn't have approved of the alcohol, but the food would be another matter.  Properly-trained and friendly staff serve freshly cooked local produce at sensible prices – try Cornish fishcakes with sweet chilli sauce and dressed leaves, or grilled Dover sole with lemon butter. There are thick bacon sandwiches at lunch and delicious puddings after – the sticky toffee pudding is delicious. The central bar is lively with TV, piped music and Sharp's Doom Bar on tap. You'll also find low stripped beams, half-panelled walls hung with modern art, fresh flowers, candle-studded pine tables and thoughtful lighting. And if all this gets too much there are eight comfortable bedrooms, all on the ground floor. The biggest have squishy sofas, and all have sparkling bathrooms with nice things waiting for you. All the good food draws a big crowd so you certainly won't have the place to yourselves, especially in summer. Enjoy the buzz.

  • The Plume of Feathers was originally a 16-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.
  • Did you know we cater for functions; wedding, conferences, businesses and much more. With our light and airy conservatory for large parties or just having a business breakfast by the fire. The Plume can cater for your needs..
  • We are only a 20-minute drive from both Newquay and Truro, so if you need a long Cornish lunch after a busy day or just a quick pint on your way through, The Plume of Feathers is the perfect stop gap for your day out and about.
