About US

The Plume of Feathers is the most inviting of places.

Our cosy, dog-friendly retreat blends the warmth and character of a traditional inn with a stylish, contemporary ambience. Exposed oak beams, a roaring log fire and a natural spring hark back to the past, while vibrant art, a light-flooded conservatory and innovative dishes create a modern edge.

Once you’ve had your fill of country-pub food packed with local ingredients, retreat to one of our boutique bedrooms where you can soak in the bath and slip between Egyptian cotton sheets. Converted from the original barns, stables and hen houses to which their names allude, our dog-friendly accommodation features country-style furnishings, modern artwork and all mod cons.

Drink and dine in a cosy ambience; sleep in utter comfort. The Plume of Feathers is the perfect choice for a luxury break in Cornwall.

Our Team

We aim to provide the very best customer service and dining experience but know that we couldn’t do that without a skilled and motivated team. We’re proud of what they achieve and so like to hero them, with thanks here.

Who is who



Our head chef Andrew Dudley decided he wanted to be a chef after spending his Saturdays cooking with his grandmother at the family farm in Wales; he still regards her as the best cook he ever met!

His training was split between Pibwrlwyd College, Carmarthen and Les Sorbets Cullinary School, Pays de la Loire, France.

Andrew returned to the UK to work for various prestigious hotels around the UK from London to Brecon and Herefordshire.

At one point, he was in the finals for the Welsh Chef of the Year!

Andrew ran his own restaurant, in south Wales, for four years before deciding on a change of pace and a move to Cornwall with his family.

Now his love of the Cornish diversity of food will become evident as he creates new and inspiring menus and signature dishes at The Plume.
