Could not fault the quality and presentation of the food and drink but expect to pay a lot of money for it.

We are very glad that you enjoyed our food so much. Our Head Chef does indeed deserve a michelin star. He trained for many years in a Michelin starred establishment before coming to be our Head Chef. He never disappoints, and every menu he writes is full of delicious and exciting things. More

WE met up with my partners Uncle for a dinner on Saturday evening, the fish dishes were superb, the service was excellent and the wine flowed, one of our party was gluten intolerant and the restaurant could not have been more helpful, even did a deconstructed trifle for her - Thanks guys .. A great night

This is about the food, and this has to be one of the best places for fine dining in the Fowey area. My trio of salmon starter set the tone: smoked salmon mousse, salmon tartar and, best of all, melt-in-the-mouth salmon mi-cuit that I have only encountered this good once before. The main course of cornish pollock with smoked haddock... More

Enjoy the very best of Cornish food, cooked to perfection, in this relaxed and friendly riverside location.
The restaurant looks out across the beautiful River Fowey.
In summer the outdoor dining terrace is perfect for a light lunch, or al fresco dining in the evening. In the winter a wood burning stove transforms the Restaurant into a cosy and intimate delight.
