Popped into this delightful pub for a meal which was the Spicy pork soup and then the rack of bbq ribs. Both meals were fantastic and well presented. Staff were incredibly helpful and a were a credit to the place. Well done.

A lovely welcome, fantastic accommodation (the attic flat), superb food, great beers. You walk from the Inn down through the churchyard and you are on the harbour. What a wonderful part of the world. We wanted to stay longer...

We stayed here for just one night after cycling from Land's End & en route to John O'Groats to raise money for brain tumour research. When we booked we were told that there would be live music in the bat but which would finish at 11pm which was fine. What happened was that a staff leaving party spiller onto the... More

Located on the hill above the main town, this gem offers a nice experience in Fowey. The staff are all cheerful ambassadors and nothing is too much trouble. There is a small but adequate car park behind the hotel, essential as there is no street parking in the town. The rooms are comfortable, the bar food is excellent with a... More

We were absolutely delighted to drive up to The Safe Harbour Inn. it was everything an inn in Cornwall should be. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and had the most amazing view. The town of Fowey was an absolute gem. We would certainly like a return visit. Food in the bar and breakfast were both... More

We had high hopes of our evening meal here having read the reviews but found a rather mixed experience.The crab linguine was well cooked though fairly bland, tepid and the 'artisan' bread it came with was a tiny and very boring roll. The chicken korma was declared 'good'. The steak had a good flavour and was tender but was missing... More

Thank you for taking time to review dining with us at the safe, sorry the crab linguine did not come up to expectations, the rolls we use are local and come in as artisan, a quick word with your waitress re onion rings would have brought them to you, sorry they were missed off, the burgers from the local butcher...

We ate at the Safe Harbour on our second evening in Fowey. Seven of us accommodated easily, lovely food, good prices, no complaints at all! They do speciality nights, like curry night, steak night etc . Friendly bar staff and waitresses. Obviously we cannot comment on the rooms as we stayed in our rented cottage. Quick walk up a steep...

Food good, bar staff Grade 1 Lovely, but made to feel extremely uncomfortable and unwelcome by some of the locals. Had booked a table but felt we had to rush our meal due to other customers wanting our seats and table. Will definitely not be going back.

Thank you for the review of the safe, and your praise of the food and our staff. Sorry you felt rushed at your table, but I would like to point out that at this time of year 99% of the people who eat with us are holiday makers who all want tables at the same time some being less courteous... More
