We've stayed at the galleon many times before and are always happy with everything. Great rooms, get the river view if you can, great breakfast, and lunch /dinner if you can fit it in! We feel very at home here wiv fabulous friendly staff. The fact the mid February weather was fantastic added to this valentine break for me and... More

Food and drink was great and sensibly priced. We enjoyed a calm relaxing time. Which is what we wanted. Many thanks to all. We... More

Like others, lovely location, let down by café style food and décor. Food worst we have had in our annual anniversary holiday, Sorry guys, new menu, maybe poor chef?? I believe this could be a fantastic venue with standards improved

This pub enjoys good views of the bay! We stopped for lunch on a cold February day. The staff were friendly and attentive! The food was nothing special although the portions generous; if that is what you are looking for! I would visit again but only for a drink!

We often enjoy a walk through Fowey and lunch in the Galleon. Superbly located by the river we always find the staff very friendly and helpful and the food is plentiful, hot and well priced. Well worth a visit.

For our first visit to Cornwall we decided to base ourselves in Fowey, and this place had such good reviews that we were really looking forward to our stay and booked for 3 days. Having looked at the reviews more closely now I realise that most are for the food. Shame that we did not get to try it as... More

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
