The perfect place to sit and watch the world go by with an excellent glass of wine ! The menu looked absolutely superb and very well priced definitely want to try the food. Very chilled, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Had Saturday lunch with the family. No kids menu but the food was great for sharing and really high quality. We had lots of fresh fish and a decent local ale. Nice place. Even better if the weather had allowed us to sit on the terrace which overlooks the harbour.

Now Fat Cap and Brisket, which has done well. Try the Monkfish Scampi on the terrace overlooking the sea.

A lovely place to eat - the menu is tapas style (or every dish is a starter portion). Really good quality of food; if you can sit on the balcony for some amazing views over the bay

We attended earlier in the week and were unable to get a vacant table, it didnt look half full, so booked for a Saturday night and were ushered to a great table overlooking River Fowey. The menu is essentially... More

We came for dinner on the last evening of our week in Fowey. We loved the decor, the setting and the flexible menu with the choice of small dishes and sharing plates. We had soft shell crab, a brisket dish and lobster. All superb but if you go there, whatever you do, order any dish that mentions brisket! It was... More

No choices of coffee. Only in a caffettiere. Four of us had to walk out. Shame since we'd been going to previous place for years
