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.

I booked this restaurant over a month in advance for the first day of our holiday on a Saturday evening in Fowey! The setting is fantastic next to the Fowey estuary however we did have an eventful taxi ride as the tide was in and the restaurant is situated up a very steep hill. On entering we were greeted warmly... More

Popped in with friends down here on holiday for lunch snack. Only wanted a sandwich, these ranged from £5 to £9! OK for that you must get chips or crisps plus salad and fresh local bread? No chance, 2 slices of cheap supermarket ready sliced, both a bit dry, a very small bit of salad and that was it. The... More

During a week's holiday in Golant we made this meal out a treat - and it was. The hotel is positioned high above the River Fowey with lovely views from the balcony terrace. We were greeted and made to feel comfortable and relaxed with pre-meal drinks while we ordered. Just a few people at a time in the light, spacious... More

Simply outstanding. Well worth its two rosettes. Menus are good, presentation and service are excellent. Waiting to be discovered we feel. Try it and see what we mean. Enjoy!

We were staying in a cottage in Golant and went to this restaurant for one evening. The food was excellent and the waiters at table were very helpful... There was a good menu and wine list. The restaurant overlooks the river Fowey. It was anexpectedly good find in the small village.

This place epitomises "don't judge a book by its cover". We arrived and our initial thought was that it looked like a suburban block of flats - all upvc windows and decking. After an aperitif on the terrace with the most beautiful view over the river we settled to have dinner. The food was lovely. Really tasty, clearly local and... More

Thank you for your kind words, and I am so glad that we did some things right for you, but so sorry that your sleep was disturbed. Our walls are not actually 'paper thin', and do differ in different parts of the building. In our experience, some folk are much more sensitive to noise than others, and thankfully this Hotel...

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 design and execution. Menus are short, which is sensible in... 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.
