Special occasion meal - October
Save

We will be staying in Lostwithiel in October as a group of 8 and are looking for somewhere to have a meal for a special occasion on a Monday evening. We have a couple of none fish/seafood diners in our party and would be looking for somewhere memorable with good food and drink and possibly a good atmosphere (although I appreciate it will be a Monday night!) - we would consider travelling to Fowey or St Austell or a similar distance.

All responses/suggestions gratefully received - thanks!

Hi

I don't think you will get much of an atmosphere anywhere on a Monday night in October!

Are you looking for good pubs or more expensive restaurants?

There are a couple of good quality pubs nearby, The Royal Oak in Lostwithiel is good as is The Crown at Lanlivery which is only a mile away.

Fowey has several restaurants but you would need to check whether they are open on a Monday in October

Thanks for your reply and the info.

We would go for a good pub or restaurant - all options are open, but recommendations are always really helpful. It will also be half-term week so we are hoping that more places will be open on the Monday that week.

Thanks again :)

Have had lunch here and thought it was very good, so imagine it would be a good place for dinner too.

Lanhydrock Golf Club is nice, and you have the choice of the restaurant or the bar menu

Hi

This is the website for the Crown which i've been to many times, or as you are staying in Lostwithiel , you can easily find the Royal Oak and have a look at.

I like the Crown at Lanlivery too. If you wanted to drive into Fowey, 'Sams' has an excellent atmosphere: http://www.samsfowey.co.uk It is very very popular and you can't book but the time goes by very quickly if you need to wait for a table due to the good feel of the place.

Hi there

If you don't mind a shortish ride to Polperro, you can get the best of both worlds if you dine at the Blue Peter Inn on the quayside. It's a fantastic pub with great ales and a warm welcome. The food is superb , all locally caught or sourced and the prices are very reasonable. You can eat downstairs in the bar area or upstairs in the dining room. Tables can be booked which I'd advise as the place is usually busy most nights.

Many thanks to you all - there are certainly a few great options now for us to look at, and as we are staying for a week more than a couple of them will come in very handy!

Cheers all :)

The most useful restaurant in Lostwithiel, The Grapevine, has recently closed and in any case was not open on Mondays. All around here you'll have difficulty avoiding the seafood but many places have a good other selection. If you must stay in Lostwithiel, try The Globe, a pub restaurant. Suggestions for elsewhere (from a frequent visitor to the area with no axe to grind): Bodmin - the restaurant at Bodmin Jail; or go just a little bit further to Chapel Amble (near Wadebridge) to The Maltsters Arms. Both these latter two do a good selection of nice food and can accommodate a large party. Good luck!
