Good quality food and friendly service

We had dinner in The Lugger this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. We haven't been to Fowey for some time and other restaurants were full so we tried our luck here. To be honest, we weren't expecting a great deal. The bar, although very clean, felt a little dated. The food looked pretty good so we... read more

The Lugger Inn in Fowey serves simple but tasty food in ample portions, from gigantic cod and chips through to Tagliatelle with scallops and squid every dish is freshly cooked and a delight to eat. The atmosphe in the pub is friendly and traditional, the beer is excellent and the pricing reasonable.

Good pub with real ale, keep them coming! A few more would be appreciated. Food OK but nothing outstanding. Please take a look at your wine glasses as the ones we had with friends were dirty and smeared.

This is just how pub food should be. A typical pub menu but all cooked well. Steak pie with lots of meat. Good fish and chips with excellent batter. Most essential - great chips! A friendly landlady and young girls serving who were pleasant and efficient.The pub itself has loads of character.

They were nicely washed down with the local ale. I used the opportunity to try stilton, which has always 'scared' me. It was... More
