This restaurant closed down nearly a year ago. A pity, as it was in a good position and there is not that big a selection of good restaurants right in the middle of Fowey. Plenty outside.

I could go on about how Tony, Glyn and and their close-knit team combine to produce a fun, friendly, family-style service. I could mention the satisfaction I get from seeing this glorious C16th building in it's latest incarnation giving pleasure to happy diners, night after...More

What a fabulous idea - they were lovely and really good when you don't want the hassle of eating out. We ate back here later as well and enjoyed our meal too.

We spent a week in Fowey and ate here twice. The mussels and country pate were delicious. Very nice atmosphere and good service.

I think roast Sunday lunch is out of season only. The restaurant wasn't very busy which seems a shame as the roast was superb, beautifully cooked and lots of veggies, three roast potatoes and a big Yorkshire pudding. Enough gravy to keep even me happy....More

Really great food, lovely veggie Sunday lunch too. Nut roast a little dry but full of flavour. Excellent range of fresh vegetables and the beef was also good. Friendly waiting staff and reasonably priced. Recommend, plus they are open when all the other pubs stop...More

Description
Originally a Posting House where people could 'hire' horses and get 'victuals', The Globe has been in Fowey for around 400 years. It has had many guises over the years but has always been a place of hospitality. Since taking over the building in March this year, it has been our philosophy to produce fantastic food using the very best ingredients Cornwall has to offer along with the warmest Cornish hospitality. Our Head Chef, Glynn Wellington, is Fowey born and bred, and proud to be Cornish and utilise the wonderful produce on our doorsteps. You may see him collecting the bread from Quay Bakery, just 50 yards away from the restaurant, or picking wild garlic in the fields around Fowey. Our meat comes from Kittows of Kilhallon just 3 miles away, and our mussels from beds about a mile away by sea. Our coffee is hand roasted here in Cornwall and our beers are all brewed in St Austell. Even our bubbly is Cornish from the award winning Camel Valley, near Bodmin. Over the coming months we will be restoring the letting rooms upstairs to their former glory and then be able to offer the finest Cornish food, drink and hospitality, right here in the heart of Fowey.
