The Galleon Inn has spectacular views and good position, breakfast was very good, BUT parking is non existent so is very difficult, we found ourselves staying out until 6 pm so that we could get an overnight place. Food was general pub fare and that is not to say it was bad, just the same as everywhere else in the...

Another wonderful visit to Fowey and The Galleon. We couldn't believe our luck with the wonderful weather. We were able to sit outside and enjoy fab lunches then cosy up inside for dinner later. All the staff are so friendly and it's great that every time we return here they remember what we drink and are so welcoming. With amazing...

There are only a few seats at the front of the pub with the amazing views but if you get one it is spectacular. If not there is adequate outside and inside seating at the side of the pub. We did not eat here but what we saw delivered looked really good. A down to earth and friendly place for...

Dropped in for a pint to this bustling pub overlooking the riverside, with views across to Polruan. I was impressed enough to think about staying here on my next visit, as the food served to other customers looked good enough to eat.

The Galleon Inn is in a prime position overlooking the river - we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady and shown to our room with no issues. We had paid a little extra to have a room overlooking the river - it was a large room with a nice bathroom - it was very home from home and...

Stayed at the galleon inn for five nights in September. The room was lovely, the staff very friendly and the breakfast great. Full English freshly cooked and very tasty. The bar food was also excellent in the evenings. I would highly recommend this place. I'll definitely be returning next year. Oh....and well priced too 😎

The reason I wish this wasn't as good is that I may be able to book a room more often. It is a very popular venue and when you have stayed it is obvious why. Apart from the outstanding location, especially from the front rooms, the staff/proprietors and the accommodation and food are just great value.

Although having visited many years ago it was like time had stood still. The friendly welcome, the excellent service and the outstanding value-for-money food were unchanged. The estuary views, together with those of the Polruan and Bodinnick ferry crossings and the range of boats - moored and moving - are free and unbeatable. The room was very comfortable - the...

Recommend this place for a nice and warm meal in Fowey. It's right by the pier which also means a lot of gulls. Sit outdoors at your own risk especially with food. There are lots of owners with dogs so please take note as it freaked my friend out abit as she's afraid of animals. 😝 We all ordered lager....

We stayed 1 night on our way further west. We booked a river view room and the views didn't disappoint. The room itself was clean & well equipped. Breakfast was excellent but we elected to eat dinner elsewhere as we thought that the menu was limited. The pub had a lovely terrace overlooking the river & sold some quality real...
