We had lunch in the tea rooms of The Dwelling House. unfortunately there wasn't room in the outside area which looked really nice, so we had to settle for lunching in one of the inside rooms, the food was nice enough, though my crab sandwich was a little bland. service was pleasant though a little slow, the room we sat...

If you're looking for a yummy choice of cake to have with your coffee in Fowey then look no further! Just difficult to choose as so many amazing options! Also enjoyed good cappuccino and a lovely layered cafe latte mocha.

We wandered up and down the street trying to decide which eatery to try. I am glad that we chose this one. The friendly staff and owner were attentive. The food was lovely. We shared the cheese platter and followed this with a cream tea. The cheeses were wonderful, the salad fresh and varied and the dressings and chutney home... More

The best cream tea I have had. Staff excellent food fantastic and the environment was wonderful. THANK YOU so much. Please go and try as they do do more than cream teas. Lunch and sandwiches or coffee and cake.

Our crab sandwiches were gorgeous with a huge... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Fowey but it was before 6pm. We went to the Galleon where we've eaten before but they serve 6-9. We then tried the 'Lugger' who also serve from 6. A lovely lady in the Lugger recommended the Dwelling House which is just over the road. It doesn't look much from the outside... More

Home cooking, high quality and quirky. Great snacks cooked to order, fab home made cakes, loveliest staff! Visit the ladies loo for an insight into the uniqueness of the place! Fab atmosphere but it does get busy.

My partner and I have just got home form a 5 night stay at The Dwelling House. The room is lovely and the roll top bath in the room a treat. The owners and their staff are so friendly and the service is excellent. The breakfast is delicious, with a wide choice, and the cakes and scones in the tearoom... More

This is an authentic tea shop. A little forbidding from the outside as not easy to see inside. So DO take a leap of faith and enter. We had the traditional Cornish Cream Tea (£5.75) and it's a real delight. Quick and friendly service with the tea in a large teapot, with separate hot water jug for 'top-ups' and plenty... More

Called into the very unassuming Dwelling House whilst in Fowey for the day - (you could easily miss it along Fore street.) Had the most fantastic Cornish cream tea whilst the hubby had the toasted tea cake. Both the best we'd ever eaten. Good selection of other choices on the menu and the fresh leaf tea and coffee were superb... More
