This restaurant has been closed for a while but has been bought by St Austell brewery along with its sister restaurant - Food for Thought - hopefully will reopen before the summer.

Lovely stone baked pizza. Partners pasta also received great praise. Would eat there again. Not bad value either considering it is right on the quay.

Had had a 'fishy' diet for many days & fancied some meat. Sometimes a risk with a rib-eye, but not on this occasion - absolutely delicious & cooked med/rare to perfection. The pepper sauce was so full of peppercorns & complimented the steak perfectly. Shame the waitress was a little remote, but she did share a smile or two eventually;the... More

We were able to sit outside in the patio area with our little puppy under the table as the heating was on. I had probably the best carbonara ever and my husband had a king prawn pizza. All very nice. Very nice Prosecco by the glass too. Friendly helpful staff who made us feel welcome.

Great atmosphere, pleasant staff, good position right on the Qyayside in Fowey...BUT £15 for a pizza is a bit steep...albeit that it was the most expensive that I chose and it was very good . I would go back though as the overall experience was very enjoyable.

Very nice pizza and lasagne in a very good atmosphere. Really accommodating as we were with our 4-month old daughter in a pram!

We were greeted with a luke warm reception however they reluctantly agreed to serve us as we were starving. The food (we ordered 4 cheese... More
