Breakfast is fab with great choice and freshly cooked to order Parking can be a nightmare if you don't plan but luckily... More

Clean and comfortable rooms. Fully cooked breakfast amazing and hot. Very very good value. Views stunning. Only downfall car park a fair hilly walk which is fine but have to be at car by 9am to pay again. Other than that will definitely be back x

We visit Fowey once or twice a year and come lunch time always head straight to 'The Galleon Inn'. The staff are always courteous and very well organised. Never have to wait long for food, which we've always found to be excellent. Even at busy times the service is fast and efficient. Check the blackboard for the list of available... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat. It was getting late so we took a locals recommendation (usually that's a bad idea). Initially seated outside with fab views of the estuary we ordered fish and chips twice. Reading the warning sign about marauding seagulls we moved into a covered eating area attached to the main building. The meals were lovely... More

Lovely place, the food was lovely and the cheapest meal we all had in the 2 weeks we had in Cornwall. I had a gammon steak and my husband had chilli concarni and our boys had fish bites. The grandparents had a pie each. All of which was all eaten up! We first visited here 4 years ago and it... More

The Galleon has two main doors; one right on the waterfront (where its main beer garden is located) and one on a main shopping street. I have only been in for drinks and a bowl of chips so I can't really comment on the quality of the food, although it looked very good from what I saw people eating. The... More

A really lovely hotel. Location is superb and the bar is very ool. The meal we had was great and good value. Room was very clean but a bit on the small side. Had a five minute walk to park the car and unloading on arrival is interesting to say the least as the streets are so narrow. Would recommend... More

Often stop for lunch here as it's lovely! Beautiful views, friendly staff, varied menu. Large varied menu of proper tradition pub meals that are well cooked, and massive portions. Everything you'd want from a pub meal in a pretty town
