On a travel zoo offer and although Bodinnick is a two minute ferry ride away from Fowey it does make you feel like you are isolated in the evening when the ferries have stopped. This is a compliment not a criticism as it leaves you to enjoy friendly and excellent service (we had help to shift or bags from car without asking) and whilst the set menu is not extensive I defy anyone not to be delighted with whatever they order. Moules starter and pork main course outstanding (a French owner, I believe) and the same lady who helped us with bags was serving food to the same standard. The view from room 8 was fantastic, excellent breakfast and if it were not for some plumbing issues in the room it would have been perfect.
Parking was fine but it would be remiss not to say that I assume visiting in the high season might be more challenging.
Thank you to the Old Ferry Inn for an outstanding stay.
