Very nice place overlooking the Fowey River right in the centre of town. There is outside seating if you wish. Great food and always daily specials on the boards. We had a Sunday roast and it was very good with generous helpings of meat and vegetables. There is no car parking on site, the nearest being a public car park... More

This pub has a first class spot on the waterside. It has some outside seating which we were keen to grab as it was a gorgeous day. My friend was disappointed that there is now a cover over the front outside area as it kept the warm sun off. We shared ( thank god) a fish plate which was massive!... More

Visited Easter weekend, the start of the season for hospitality businesses, this pub was not ready. No indication how to order food and only two menus on the bar for a very busy trade! Menu suited all tastes, food came quicker than I expected, however when ate my fish it was cold, it had been fried but obviously left before... More

Four of us, including 2 children, had lunch here. The pub itself is fairly standard but benefits from being riverside and if you can get a table outside has lovely views over the river. The service was very friendly and quick considering it was busy. The food is normal pub fare (with a childrens menu too) but with very generous... More

If you've taken yourself down to Fowey? There's an expectation that you'll grab yourself a cheeky Rattler, and I would recommend you do it here...just don't go for food here. Okay, it was Saturday and the restaurant was busy, but I honestly think they forgot about our food. For one, a number of orders went in separately, and nobody was... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the view from the Galleon, we were lucky it was a nice sunny day. The food is good and the pub is very popular. Price very fair too being a seaside town. I would recommend trying the Galleon to others when visiting Fowey. Portion sizes are good, try the steak and ale pie!

Lovely views over the river, great menu and choice of drinks, really nice staff and excellent food. Busy but easy to get s drink and food was reasonably quick (hungry kids after all the crabbing next door). Recommended.

Popped in for lunch and was extremely impressed with the food. Location good, outside seating a premium due to the beautiful views. We shared the fish platter and pizza - all tasted lovely. Excellent value for money, staff friendly and would definitely visit again.

We had family come and stay with us in Plymouth. Mother-in-law's ancestors come from Polruan so we decided to pop down and have some lunch. We caught the ferry across to Fowey and visited The Galleon Inn. Food was delicious and plenty for everyone. I would recommend the fish platter, superb!!
