Visited here for dinner recently. My starter & main were excellent (sardines/massala curry), however though hubby was happy with his fish & chips main, he was disappointed with his prawn cocktail. Overall food deserves a 4 rating. However the service was not good. The waitress sat us without offering a menu and it took a few mins for me to... More

Excellent meal in Fowey, we booked a table for Saturday night and the staff were very accommodating. The food was delicious, and lovely choice of wine. Would thoroughly recommend for a meal out.

We booked a table on a Friday night and were surprised when we arrived a little early that it wasn't open. The waiting staff did not seem to have a clue at points. We were given some apperitifs that were then taken away and then one was brought back, but they were unable to tell us what it was. We... More

We visited this restaurant with Cornish friends. Five of us were in a holiday from Australia. We had the most wonderful meals. We all had entrees and mains. Wines was reasonably priced too. I noticed several families with kids eating there too.

We visited this week and stopped here for lunch. We had crab sandwiches and chips. They were very pleasant. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the estuary. It is a good place to eat, without anything particularly special. Service was quick, and with a smile.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here on a very hot day. We ate outside with lovely views of the harbour. Service was a bit on the slow side and we noticed other people who had ordered after us getting their drinks before us. Food was good quality.

When in Fowey, we often have lunch here. It's pleasant outside and the awning saves your food from being stolen by sea gulls. Their lunch time specials are good, attractively served and service is pleasant. Good value for money given the location. They also serve a decent glass of Sauvignon.

The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside, but pleasantly surprised by the food! We visited for a late sunday lunch after arriving for a week's holiday in a nearby village. Staff friendly and accommodating of party of 7 plus baby in a buggy. I had fish and chips which was delicious, fresh ingredients, good portion size, high quality, great... More
