Lovely quaint B&B and tea rooms in the heart of Fowey. Building is circa 1430 and the oldest in Fowey. The Tudor room we stayed in had the original fireplace exposed. Fascinating piece of Tudor architecture. Room had a 4 poster bed, exposed beams and floor boards.

Lovely couple that run the B&B, genuinely interested in your stay. and the black Lab "Frank" that wanders about is beautiful.

Good selection on offer at breakfast and the fresh Stawberries and other fruit on offer was a nice touch.

Would stay again

Staying in a holiday cottage we thought we would venture to Fowey for breakfast on a wet and misty Sunday and chose to eat here after passing a number of cafes which were overflowing with people.

The cafe’s appearance, a little old fashioned, does not immediately invite you to enter but given the lack of other ‘trendy’ establishments locally we thought we would give it a try. We are glad we did as the breakfast we had was as good as any eaten over the holiday. Indeed’ breakfast at the Duchy of Cornwall Cafe near Lostwithiel the next day was a disappointment compared to the Well House.

The café is ‘doggy’ friendly but we did not find this off-putting and the owners dog wandering around also seemed to be acceptable with the dog understanding that he should not enter the kitchen preparation area.

Decor is somewhat jaded but for us the food and attentive staff were more important.

A note on Fowey. No park & ride on an August Sunday morning seemed nonsensical (the car park is positioned high above the town) Surely visitors arrive first thing in the morning and not after 1pm when the service seemed to commence. We are in our seventies and, whilst manageable, the walk to and from town was somewhat tortuous with many steps and steep paths.

Also, a town of such importance as a visitor attraction seemed to suffer from a lack of love with some very tired looking and uncared areas of the town, including the public conveniences.

It was my husband who first caught sight of the sign by the door, whilst we mooched casually along the main street through the town. It said they could cater for gluten AND dairy free. Having arrived in Fowey the night before, with no real idea of what we might find, in such a tiny and historic little place, I was over the moon to discover that there could be options for us to enjoy.

We ventured inside to find a tiny little tea room, dating back hundreds of years, with quirky little features (e.g. the toilet and a beautifully-tempered resident dog), but, which bang up to the times in the food stakes, was able to cater according to our dietary needs.

So we stopped in for lunch. I selected a fresh crab sandwich which came with salad and crisps on the sides. I cannot tell you how fresh and good they tasted. It was AMAZING! Best crab ever!

Upon inquiry I discovered that the man who ran the place made a fresh batch of gluten free scones everyday and he made them with soya milk. My daughter was so excited that we had to come back later, to give her a chance to try them, and she loved them.

I meanwhile tucked into a large piece of courgette and avocado cake, which tasted just as lush as the waitress promised.

The staff was absolutely brilliant and we would definitely come back again. BUT in high season, when Fowey gets busy, watch out, as you might have to fight your way in!

Just to add - there were other cafes that also catered for gluten free, some of which may have appeared more salubrious, but in our opinion, this cafe served us the best.

You can also get B&B accommodation here, but on this I cannot comment, as we didn't stay here.

Tim and Paula could not have been more helpful from the moment we arrived until we left. They warn about uneven floors, but despite the age of this great old building, they have really fixed it up to high modern standards. I wish we could've stayed longer!

We've been staying in St Austell since 24/07/17 and not yet experienced a cream tea. So on 29/07/17 late afternoon whilst visiting Fowey we stepped into this quaint tea room (didn't look obvious from the front that it had accommodation) because we had ages to wait until the bus is due back. We had already lunched in The Galleon Inn at midday but we had walked around a lot and hopped onto the mini ferry to Polruan and back, so this justified the cream tea plus brew for 2. The latter arrived and whilst waiting for the scones etc. we'd already drank 2 cups of tea. It was busy because a few families were having 'high tea' which takes time to prepare. When our scones arrived they were hot with crusty golden exterior. Accompanied with butter and gooseberry jam. Without going into the order of which to spread onto the scones first, let's just say it was worth the wait and they were divine. At just over £6 it was just right for the quantity. Looking at the high teas served to other tables, one would have to either miss breakfast or lunch because it's quite a lot judging by the size of the cakes/sandwich slices! The only minor drawback is that it was very hot inside the tea room and we were glad to get outside otherwise sleep would be upon us. At summertime there's no excuse for not opening windows or switching the heating off.
