Super little pub this one and well worth a visit for a drink and a bite to eat. Snuggled down by the water in a quaint riverside village, the food is great and very reasonable. Under new management from the start of 2017, the new landlord Nick is so friendly and welcoming. He is creating a wonderful, cosy atmosphere. Really... More

Brave the lack of car parking space - go early or sail in and support the new management. A friendly, local pub with very acceptable food.

Thank you for your review of the Fisherman's Arms, although it is true that Parking here is very limited, there is also a pay and display car park available near to the pub, which helps when the tide is in. We look forward to welcoming you here again, when you are next in the area. Kind Regards Nick Budd More

Last weekend we headed to Golant for a kayaking trip and as we were very early decided to pop in to the local pub for some lunch. The food was very good as was the choice but more than that we felt instantly welcome by the new manager and his family, we only wish we lived closer enough to go... More

The atmosphere was excellent. A full house of diners, luckily we had booked, and a real buzz to go with it. Everyone seemed excited as a new landlord has recently taken over. The food was lovely. Spicy fishcakes as a starter, home made, three of them on a lovely green salad was a great way to kick off. I had... More

An impromptu, out of season visit by boat to one of my favourite pubs. We were the only people there and ordering food was not a problem. We kept it simple to ham, egg and chips and we were as happy as we would have been ordering the finest meal at the finest location. You must visit - the location... More

This is a good waterside pub serving great pub food and a fine selection of Cornish ales. The owners are very welcoming and the place has character. Lots of room to sit outside and admire the views of the Fowey.

We visited the Fishermans Arms after a very pleasant walk. There were artists sketching and painting the wonderful scenery nearby. I had sustained a nasty insect sting towards the end of the walk & the landlady immediately offered me first aid of antihistamine cream. We enjoyed good, fresh, delicious food, a warm welcome; with first aid at hand - who... More

Had a few drinks here and a meal. Pub sits on the river which has a lovely outlook but not quite the warm Cornish welcome that we have experienced elsewhere. Food was very much pub grub which looks to be the same for lunch and dinner with a few specials. Our meals were served hot and promptly but nothing special.
