“Great location and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Fowey is a lovely little village which attracts many tourists.With tourism comes high prices.A fish and chip take away will cost you $6.95 and the portion will be on the small side.There is one place though which does not seem to want to rip off and it is the Galleon.The pub is situated right by the water with outdoor seating.We had fish and chips and my son had a pepperoni pizza. The food was excellent, the chips well cooked and the batter crispy and light. The fish was to die for.My son's pizza was rather large and tasty too. Overall the 3 meals inculding a pint of Doombar and 2 pints of lime and soda cost £39 not bad for a tourity place. I thoroughly recommend this inn, which is family friendly with fast and efficient service.

myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights in July. Fowey is such a beautiful wee place and the Inn was right on the estuary. The room was nice and clean and had a nice comfy bed and pillows. Teas and coffees and biscuits in the room were well stocked and nice sized cups. not small like most places you go. The food was amazing. we ate there for breakfast and dinner both days. was really yummy and big portions! would definitely recommend staying here! :)

My husband and I found this pub by accident as it is hidden down what looks like a small alley. But once inside you can see what a gem it is. They have an indoor courtyard and a dining area but past that you go outside and can site right by the harbour. At night there are lights around the harbour and it is really quite romantic. The staff in the pub are very friendly and the Carlsberg is £3 a pint. The food is excellent value with nice big portions. We will be back.

This is our regular haunt on a annual holiday to Fowey! There is nothing better than a cold pint of Doombar sitting on the deck over looking the harbour! The food is excellent value to top it off! Definitely recommend a visit or two during a stay in Fowey! Free wifi is an added freebie!!

Rooms look like they have recently been renovated, bathroom looked new. In-room safe.Very friendly staff, great food, great location located directly at the harbour. There is no lift, so not recommended for people who cannot climb stairs. About 5minutes walk from the bus station, right next to the main street. Fowey is built on a very steep hill, but there is a local bus service offered too.

Room Tip: There are rooms overlooking the harbour but as they are located over the patio of the pub they can b...

An unexpected visit to beautiful Fowey left us walking the waterfront looking for accommodation Late in the afternoon. We walked in and gave The Galleon a try - it was great. Really cosy rooms, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, friendly and prompt service - what else could you want! Plus a great place for a drink, loads of atmosphere and fun. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Even though the sound of the waterfront is captivating, close the window and use the reverse cycle a...

Great food, good value and great location. First visit to The Galleon and certainly wont be the last. Excellent. The service was fast and the quantity of food you got was simply huge !!!! We normally eat in the Boathouse, but gave the Galleon a chance this time and glad we did.
