Description: We are a small community pub, located in the quaint Village of Golant on the banks of the Stunning Fowey River. We have a traditional pub menu that includes homemade dishes, using local produce. We also have a well stocked bar with regularly changing guest ales. Our patio area overlooking the river is a fantastic place to while away a few hours with a pint and some tasty food.

Small pub in tiny waterside hamlet at the end of a country lane but with a massive welcome. Visited again after many months absence and still a pleasant place to while away a few hours in wonderful surroundings on the edge of the Fowey River. At spring high tides the water can come across the road and up to the wall of the pub so watch where you park the car! Although there is a railway line between the pub and the open river it is only used to deliver china clay to Fowey Docks twice a day & not always at weekends.

Staff are hard working & very friendly & despite being at the wrong end of an 8 meal queue the kitchen still managed to produce our food in half an hour. Our dishes were gammon egg and chips - portions substantial particularly the gammon which was cooked perfectly. Other menu items typical pub grub but with a specials board that had some interesting dishes.

Doom Bar beer was well kept and well worth drinking as always. The Fishermans is at the heart of Golant village life and is always worth a visit.

Found the Fisherman's Arms by chance whilst walking the Saints Way on a wet afternoon. When we arrived we were a bit dismayed by the hordes of families in the bar but they were one large group and left not long after we arrived, to the relief of all. We had the curry and the vegetarian chilli, both of which were plentiful, very tasty and a significant cut above the usual pub meal, and the real ales and wines by the glass were likewise very good. Friendly boosts and nice cosy ambience made this a welcome stop on our day's journey and if ever in Golant again would have no hesitation in eating here once more. A great pub.

Arrived at the Fisherman's Arms in Golant today, at the half way point of my father's 80th birthday celebratory kayak trip from Fowey. The landlord had not been warned of our imminent arrival, as we had not intended to stop there, but the weather was bitterly cold, and well, my Dad IS 80! However, the landlord could have not made us feel more welcome, nothing was too much trouble. We were given a good, old fashioned, warm welcome from the landlord of a beautiful, cosy pub, with absolutely THE most gorgeous location, and which epitomises "proper" Cornwall at it's best. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely pub, and intend to return very soon, and very regularly. I haven't rated this beautiful pub on it's late night opening, or brunch, as I don't know whether they are supplied or not.
