Description: The Fowey's restaurant has retained coveted 2 AA Rosette recognition for exceptional food since 1997 and an extensive wine list compliments the menu. Our dinner menu offers a choice of dishes that make use of the best Cornish and regional produce seasonally available. The variety of dishes are skilfully prepared by a very experienced brigade and led by Master Chef Mark Griffiths. The deep, rich colours and ornate features in The Fowey’s restaurant are redolent of the grand days when hotels were busy, social hubs and dining out was an occasion. Such surroundings provide an atmospheric soupcon of past times, which combined with delicious food, makes dining here a totally pleasurable experience. The hotel will gladly cater for special dietary requirements and appreciates advance notice in this respect. For those wishing to dine more informally, a comprehensive Bar menu is from midday until 9pm.

Forget cheap & cheerful - give yourself a treat at the "Fowey" a lovely old fashioned top class hotel. We couldn't fault it! The restaurant is top class, the view second to none! Staff very good.

“Elegant dining room with friendly staff”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is a traditional looking restaurant: white table clothes, tables laid out in rows. The view over the estuary is outstanding. The service was excellent. The food was good but not outstanding & the food prices stiff bearing in mind the non city location - two courses for £28, three for £35 with cheese costing an extra £3. That means the cheese platter costs £10 as part of a fixed price menu. Ouch.
The wine prices were not extreme.

“Best free Internet in Fowey.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

I've been staying nearby and taken to popping in to the bar for a reasonably priced coffee, a great view and free Internet; quite a consideration when you realise there is no 3g signal in Fowey that suits my phone. Of course, you can hang over the wall at the back to surf, but although I do that too, I think I owe them a few drinks, so have also been popping in and have found the bar to be friendly and the views over the river amazing.

“elegant dining room”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We had breakfast (included with our room) and two dinners in the restaurant and couldn't have been more pleased. The breakfast was great and the dinner menu changed each night with lots of choices to please any taste. Service and food were both excellent.
