Had a lovely lunch here, just a burger and chips but it was good quality. The log fire was lit on a cold, rainy day which made our lunch very nice and cosy. A nice, charming local pub which seemed to be run by a young couple.

We were travelling with friends and went to Fowey for a day. As The chosen Place is the oldest pub in Fowey, it is turistically interesting but, what a desapointment! The waiter at the bar was very confused about our order:two starters, 4 mains and 2 desserts! We waited an hour and 25 minutes for the main courses, which when...

We visited here with our friends (who made the booking locally). If I had arrived on spec, I would have probably left again as the menu was actually very limited. As I general comment, I found the food offering of this pub/restaurant wanting, and in need of improvement. For starters, whilst card payments are accepted (min £10), I could not...

This is a traditional pub that is both child and dog friendly. A good selection of St Austell beers brewed about 7 miles away. There is a good selection of food including specials which include freshly caught local fish. There is an excellent set price lunch on Sunday. Loads of character and definitely worth a visit.

Having visited Fowey for many years, and now my parents have built a property pretty much opposite, I love this place and am never disappointed. I have never stayed here, just visited for food and drink. It has recently been taken over by new landlords and has definitely improved since. The food is absolutely incredible (a modern take on traditional...

Excellent food and a very friendly pub in the centre of Fowey, good local ales and great selection of food on the menu. The food is reasonably priced for a local pub and would recommend the fish and chips.

Loads of character, staff very accommodating but the Ship Inn is right next door to the local church who's bells rang out every 15 minutes. So if you are looking for a quiet night this may not be the place for you.

Enticed into the pub by other excellent reviews on the food and we weren't disappointed. We both had the Lamb then for desserts had Hot Chocolate Fondant and Creme Brûlée. The lamb was excellent, perfectly cooked and the vegetables were delicious. The two desserts were home cooked and were fantastic. Presentation of the meals were a delight too. We were...

Just returned from a great one night stay at this hotel. The hotel is in a great position close to the quay and has everything you need. The drinks and biscuits as well as the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel miniatures were a welcome surprise. We enjoyed a fabulous full breakfast the following day. Great little gem of a hotel!
