Enjoy the very best of Cornish food, cooked to perfection, in this relaxed and friendly riverside location. The restaurant looks out across the beautiful River Fowey. In summer the outdoor dining terrace is perfect for a light lunch, or al fresco dining in the evening. In the winter a wood burning stove transforms the Restaurant into a cosy and intimate delight.

This year I have eaten four times at The Cormorant Hotel (within walking distance). Previously it has not been patronised by villagers, but now the food is so good we are beginning to go again. And it is good - a much better menu (no confit of pig's cheek!), a new chef and very good service. The helpings are perfect... More

We had a brilliant meal - from the canapes to the petit fours, we couldn't fault it. The service was perfect, an interesting menu and very well executed. Portion sizes were spot on - not so big that one feels uncomfortable or has to leave food on the plate (impossible as far as I'm concerned!). We will be hurrying back!

Tucked away in the tiny hamlet of Golant, with beautiful views over the River Fowey. Service prompt, friendly and attentive without being fussy. Wine list good and reasonably priced. Food excellent and attractively presented. Very good value at £32 per head for three courses, with a more than adequate choice.

We ate in the restaurant for both nights of our stay, primarily because on the first night there were so many good dishes I had to return to sample my second favourite. The service was attentive but not intrusive and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. The cooking and presentation of the food was excellent, just the correct... More

Requests to exclude an ingredient from both my partner and my order were ignored. Service was very poor and we felt ignored. The rump steak was also very tough and lacked flavour.
