Reviewing Spinnakers restaurant at the Fowey Hotel only here. Ate here with my wife and Mother in law as a birthday treat for her, and what a treat it was!
A warm and friendly welcome greeted us and we were seated in the bar area for a pre dinner drink and to browse the menu.
We all elected to start with the gravadlax and quails egg with Russian salad to start, followed by a fillet steak, duck breast and for myself the Cornish hake.
We sat down to a selection of lovely fresh breads to nibble on swiftly followed with our starters. The gravadlax was superb as was all dressings and accompaniments, Mains followed, I was lucky enough to sample all 3, the fillet was one of the tastiest I have tried, the duck superbly cooked and my hake was perfect. Again all the accompaniments matched perfectly with the dishes.
Desserts were equally as good, as was the cheeseboard.
The restaurant itself is for my taste, too brightly lit and a bit open but this is really a very minor criticism - it was dark when we visited but still a lovely view across the Fowey - stunning in daylight. Friendly and attentive Maitre de although one of the young waiters was slightly out of his depth!
Highly recommended and I will be saving up for another visit soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Made famous by the celebrated authoress, Daphne du Maurier, and ranked as one of the UK’s most desirable locations, the pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.The Fowey Hotel is part of Richardson Hotels of Distinction. ... more less
