Very friendly - fantastic views over Fowey Estuary and beyond. Food was modern and very tasty. Dog friendly and helpful with advice about the area. Stayed nearby and lovely walk to get to the Bodinnick slipway and the pub. Will definitely back.

The Old Ferry Inn is in Bodinnick, the east side of the Fowey river. If you want to go to Fowey, it is easiest to catch the ferry across. To drive there is a long way round! If you take the ferry across please note the time... More
