Visited this place twice during our stay for breakfast. What more could you want - great food and friendly service. I believe this is in the oldest building in Fowey! Low ceilings and beams - amazing. Fred the black Labrador wanders about looking for food but is no problem at all and in fact makes the visit all the more...

My husband and I and our 2 dogs stopped off at The Well House for a late breakfast / early lunch. Food was excellent and the service friendly, polite and efficient, Our dogs were made very welcome. Definitely recommend it. If we have the opportunity to return we will make a point of dropping in again.

Thought we'd have a look in and stop for a drink and ended up having lunch. Good gluten free options, and a huge Ploughman's Lunch! Not bad prices and a black lab who serves as a hoover once guests have left. A place with lots of character. Can feel a little warm and crowded when busy with the low ceilings,...

This is possibly the 4th or 5th time we have visited and we keep coming back. Not only does it serve lovely food, the service is top notch, friendly, polite and efficient. It's good for all walks of life, old, young, family, couples, all welcome and dogs included. My children always look out for Frank now, the Well House dog,...

So quaint - it could make you faint ! Looked very authentic, you could imagine Ross Poldark having his morning coffee across the room from you! It is a beautiful place - The first visit for me and my Wife. It is a B&B as well, with the owners friendly dog close by. We had tea and scones after rolling...

Situated in the heart of beautiful Fowey this B&B is an excellent dog friendly stay. Paula and Tim were very welcoming to us and our pooch providing a dog bed and bowl. The accommodation is in a very old building but still provides all of the amenities needed including wifi. The room was comfortable albeit not huge but certainly more...

We had a delicious afternoon tea complete with sandwiches,macarons and beautiful scones with cream and jam on our first visit and a breakfast on our second, all the food was fantastic, the bacon on the all day breakfast was some of the best I've ever tasted. Lovely old building, 1st class service with the added bonus of Frank the Labrador...

We stayed in The Well House Jul 8-10 2016. We were given the White Room which was beautifully appointed with touches of turquoise giving a warm feeling to the room. The hosts were delightful, the breakfasts amazing, The building had low timber beamed ceilings and the decor in the tearooms was delightful. Would highly recommend this property.
