Fowey Hotel Restaurant: Fowey Hotel Restaurant
While staying at the Fowey Hotel we ate one night in the hotel's grand looking restaurant. As we were hotel guests, and we booked our table in advance, we were given a considerable discount on the cost of a 3 course meal.
Favorite Dish: We started with the Ham Hock, Pork Belly and Foie Gras Terrine, with Pickled Beetroot and Apple Puree, which was happily devoured; and the Prosciutto Parcel, with Mozzarella and Mediterranean vegetables, which was pretty terrible IMO.
Main course was Chicken served with Rosti, asparagus and tomatoes; and some sort of fish (maybe Sea Bream) with various accompaniments. Can't remember the full details of these dishes, though they were enjoyable enough and nicely cooked. Dessert was a Dark Chocolate Fondant with Honeycomb ice cream. It wasn't cooked quite long enough, and was so rich I was unable to eat it all.
The food wasn't particularly special, but it was a nice evening, and certainly worth a visit if you can get a table by the window.

Pinky Murphy's Cafe: Quirky and delightful
Picture a consciously retro Central Perk from Friends and you'll be close to picturing Pinky Murphy's Cafe.
I adore this place. Whilst not cheap it serves excellent food in a chilled and friendly environment.
It is pretty cluttered - and prettily cluttered with mismatching furniture and crockery.
Works for me :)
Child, mud and dog friendly.
Favorite Dish: Baked sweet potato with goats cheese and salad was very good. Only complaint was that the salad leaves where such a shape as to make tidy eating tricky.
Chris had something involving baked beans, bacon and toast which he thoroughly enjoyed. Luddite.
Add to this a pot of tea for two and the bill came to just under £15 which wasn't unreasonable.
Pinky Murphy's is about an hour away from my home - I would have absolutely not hesitation about driving there for lunch tomorrow. Indeed I quite possibly will.
The Galleon: Richard & Judy go there !!!!
Excellent resturant with good choice of meals for adults and children. You can sit either inside the pub in a nautical type comfortable surrounding, or eat outside on the quay looking over the beautiful Fowey estuary.
Very relaxing and good portions.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is the fish and chips, although if you like salads then there is a vast range available.
The King of Prussia
For Stace, was nice to come back to a place he had not been in 20 years time, and that He loved so much, this is a pub he used to spend lots of time in his 20´s lol
