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.

Inventive, flavoursome cooking with aspiration.

How you can comment "very disappointing" I just don't know. Let's start afresh. Here's a hotel restaurant that's remarkably different from the hotel, which I am reviewing separately. The chef has seen what Starred colleagues can do. He has learnt as he went. He has shown his skills in menu... read more

Food was of a high quality, well presented and served efficiently with pleasant staff. There are lovely views so you should request a window seat.

We chose to eat here having read the trip advisor reviews and either the previous reviewers were tipsy when they reviewed this or we encountered it on a very poor day. We sat down and thought what a lovely place we'd come to with a lovely river view. We ordered drinks while we perused the menu. We ordered our food... More

Now this is a bit of secret but one I am going to share. The food was outstanding and the views lovely. They do not invite children but a well behaved teenager was fine with them and we could not have been made more welcome.

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!
