We were hoping to eat at this restaurant last time we came to Fowey but were unable to complete arrangements. The food was as good as anticipated with an excellent wine list. The riverside views enhanced the experience. Bookings highly recommend to avoid disappointment.

Description
A Relaxed Waterfront Restaurant.The bright restaurant leads out onto a spacious terrace where on a sunny day you can enjoy afternoon tea (the Cornish way of course, jam first!), A pre-dinner glass of fizz, or a long and lazy lunch. It's a great spot to watch life on the estuary unfold, from boats of all shapes and sizes to the local wildlife which includes resident swans and the occasional dolphin.Fowey River oysters, local scallops, West Country meat and Cornish cheeses... Hungry yet? 'Q' restaurant at The Old Quay House offers excellent dining in a relaxed, unstuffy setting. Forget unsmiling waiters, small portions and whispered conversations, dining here is all about fun and enjoyment - quality local and season produce features heavily on head chef Ben Bass'menu of creative, contemporary dishes.Our wine list, hand-picked by Britain's youngest Master of Wine, is pretty good too...
