What a lovely place to eat. Food was great service friendly and efficient. Our only disapointment was that it was our last day and we won't have chance to have a dinner there as well. I suppose there's always next year.

We sat in the outside area of Food for Thought and had a wonderful view of the goings on in Fowey. The staff were very attentive, friendly and welcoming and gave excellent service. On the down side ... A fourth person joined us as our food arrived but although he ordered immediately his order, a crab sandwich, did not arrive... More

Prime location by the Polruan ferry and very welcoming popular spit with large outside terrace and great service. Crab sandwich and fish and chips fitted the bill. Dogs welcome too. Good value/quality.

Visited on a busy Saturday Lunchtime. Excellent menu with just enough choice to make it difficult. Sat overlooking the river with stunning views and a great place to people watch. Service was outstanding with time taken to chat to the customers. Will definitely visit again.

Great spot, fantastic service and excellent local produce, particularly the local fish. The staff went over and above to ensure everything was good. We had our 6 month old daughter with us and they were extremely accommodating. There were other families and couples there.

Location is great, on the side of the quay so the views are lovely out over the river. Service was excellent. We both had a crab sandwich for lunch which came with a nice looking and well dressed salad with what looked like hand cut chips. The amount of crab meat was absolutely huge and these were the best crab... More
