My wife and I spent two nights here recently. Brilliantly located right by the water's edge - twenty yards distant we could hear the gentle lapping of waves with the bedroom window open, and the chugging motor of the morning Polruan ferry at 7.45 - certainly for local children a novel version of 'the school run'. The staff were pleasant... More

We've had lunch at The Galleon before so decided this would be our choice for lunch after a wander around Fowey. I love baked potatoes but at The Galleon they were a silly price, it was much the same at many places in Cornwall. Its just a potato guys! The menu was okay though so we made our choice and... More

Went there today for Sunday Lunch as we could't get into any of the posher places. This bar and dining area has an air of the 60's about it. There was a live band playing pleasant background jazz music. The menu consisted of about 6 choices all original English dishes e.g. Roast Beef, Cottage Pie, Beef Stew & Dumplings etc.... More

Lovely stay from the moment you enter the place. A warm welcome then a cold pint cannot be beat. A really good breakfast is served in the large conservatory overlooking the river and the room was spacious, clean and comfy.

As you might have guessed the main bonus of the Galleon Inn is the location right on the ha our front along with the value for money rooms. We were unlucky that the rooms overlooking the river were not available ,if they are definitely go for one ,room 4 is one I am not sure of the others. We stayed... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a riverview room. The room was enormous, the view was to die for and the bathroom was spacious. Breakfasts were generous and served by smiling staff, in fact all of the staff we came across were pleasant and helpful. Special thanks to the young barman who carried our heavy bags up... More
