I last reviewed this place in 2014 since then it has become a firm summer favorite. We have a property in Fowey and a rib so if the sun is out it is a short trip up the river to moor on the Penmarlam pontoon...More

I would strongly advise visitors to avoid this one and visit Pinky Murphy's in Fowey instead! The food, coffee and service is far superior. The male owner of The Quay was very brusque and rude with a "they'll come here anyway" kind of attitude to...More

Lovely spot if a bit difficult to find right by the river/ estuary. Suggest you park at the top of the drive b4 the £10 barrier and walk down. The staff were very friendly and the coffee was good. Nice setting for their evening meals.

Dropped in before with our friends who live locally - but after a hardy morning's exercise, you can't bet a bacon Bap and a cuppa here -service is friendly and just makes the whole day better!

This little cafe is set up like a little taverna with outdoor seating including some under a canopy. Perfect for warm days and evenings. A simple menu which is well cooked and reasonably priced. Fish and chips were particularly good. Friendly staff too.
