We stayed at The Galleon Inn for 3 nights (Bed and Breakfast). From the moment we arrived, to our departure all of the staff were really warm, friendly, and genuinely welcoming, which as we all know can make a nice stay great! Well our stay was.......great!! The location is central and right on the river, which is excellent, and exceptionally... More

We visit Fowey once or twice a year and come lunch time always head straight to 'The Galleon Inn'. The staff are always courteous and very well organised. Never have to wait long for food, which we've always found to be excellent. Even at busy times the service is fast and efficient. Check the blackboard for the list of available... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat. It was getting late so we took a locals recommendation (usually that's a bad idea). Initially seated outside with fab views of the estuary we ordered fish and chips twice. Reading the warning sign about marauding seagulls we moved into a covered eating area attached to the main building. The meals were lovely... More

Lovely place, the food was lovely and the cheapest meal we all had in the 2 weeks we had in Cornwall. I had a gammon steak and my husband had chilli concarni and our boys had fish bites. The grandparents had a pie each. All of which was all eaten up! We first visited here 4 years ago and it... More

The Galleon has two main doors; one right on the waterfront (where its main beer garden is located) and one on a main shopping street. I have only been in for drinks and a bowl of chips so I can't really comment on the quality of the food, although it looked very good from what I saw people eating. The... More

My wife and I called in for a quick drink, after a river boat trip. They have a fair selection of real ales, at very, very reasonable prices. The place is spotless, as are the toilets. Whilst we did not have a meal - we really should have done - a number of diners had their food delivered. You really... More

A really lovely hotel. Location is superb and the bar is very ool. The meal we had was great and good value. Room was very clean but a bit on the small side. Had a five minute walk to park the car and unloading on arrival is interesting to say the least as the streets are so narrow. Would recommend... More

Often stop for lunch here as it's lovely! Beautiful views, friendly staff, varied menu. Large varied menu of proper tradition pub meals that are well cooked, and massive portions. Everything you'd want from a pub meal in a pretty town

Stayed at the Galleon for 2 nights last week, and although we booked too late to get one of their best rooms, the room we had was lovely, not big but well appointed with wardrobe, shelves and drawers. Great location just on the river, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We didn't eat here in the evenings but the breakfasts... More
