Staying in Mousehole over New Year, we were looking for places to eat, and decided to look at this restaurant as a possible eating place.
Initial impression was not very good, staff being rather off-hand, and service slow.
Not a very cosy atmosphere, and we decided to go elsewhere.

We stayed in Mousehole for Christmas last year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so we came again for this Christmas. One of many reasons to return was the wonderful meals we had at 2 Fore Street, twice on both occasions. Standout points are the meals and the staff. Greetings on arrival are warm and genuine from all. The excellent Flora served us last year and this and she’s a credit to the restaurant. But all staff have the right attitude and are helpful without being overbearing. An excellent choice of dishes from starters to puds makes decisions difficult, but whatever you choose will be presented immaculately. The chefs delivered some of the very best dishes we’ve had this year; and last. A small but classy wine list and no problem asking for tap water. That’s now two dinners and two lunches and if we didn’t live in Dorset, 2 Fore Street would be a regular destination. Very good value too.

We ate lunch here recently, and were underwhelmed. Just an average little establishment, basic décor (I am really tired of scrubbed floors to be frank) but pleasant attentive staff. Very quiet, as one would expect at this time of the year, and a really chilly room. The majority of the customers kept their coats on! Food was ok, perfectly pleasant but absolutely no wow factor. As for the view - the bus stops outside, and traffic is pretty constant. Yes, the harbour is just over the road, but unless you are sitting in the window (even chillier there) what you actually mostly see is cars. We love Mousehole, and have been visiting for years, but probably won't bother with this restaurant again.

Despite a cool change in weather and possible rain, we decided to take our chances in the courtyard as the dinner menu looked very tempting. The food was lovely and the service great. Recommended.

We were staying in Mousehole recently, and ate dinner at 2 Fore Street on 2 occasions. Both times were quite lovely and we really enjoyed our entire experience with them! We kind of ate our way around the menu having appetizers, meals off the specials board and desserts. We enjoyed nice ales and great cocktails with excellent liquors from near & far.

The service was lovely, the staff friendly and attentive, and food really good to excellent! 2 Fore Street is a great place and they are doing really nice work there. If you are in Mousehole or nearby, do stop in for a meal! Might be a good idea to make reservations, BTW- they are popular!
