So we haven't stayed here, but have had cream tea 3 times on the most beautiful of sunny days. Staff are formal but friendly and didn't mind how long we sat there.

Good selection of food, great portion sizes and quality produce. Good service. The restaurant is dated, feels like eating in a time warp. Would be god on a summer evening as the view is amazing.

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

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.
