Albert Quay, Fowey, Cornwall
Our Fave Foodie Hangouts
Eating Out & Staying Local
1 - Brown Sugar Cafe’,
Feeding the crowds since 2006 and saving hungry sailor’s, locals and hungover party goers with breakfast, lunch and early diners. Extensive menu based on homemade local ingredients with options for everyone. You can eat inside or outside and takeaway making it a good option for afloat picnics. We are a little biased as this is our sister company, some of the crew work the winters in here. It's also our go to for refreshments. as well as our t-shirt sponsor.
2 - Pintxo
Absolutely my fave evening meal of 2020, a small but perfectly formed cafe on the esplanade. Bringing a taste of Spain to Fowey, serving amazing tapas dishes. With a laid back feel, outside tables and no reservations necessary.
3 - The Ship Inn
The Ship Inn is Fowey’s oldest pub. For more than four centuries the inn has been at the heart of the Town. Great for visitors and locals looking for a chat around that huge open fire, if pirate captain Jack Sparrow had a Fowey local this would be it. Comprehensive menu catering for all tastes.
4 - North Street Kitchen
NSK is the little daytime sibling of Fitzroy Fowey (also very good) focused on beautiful simply prepared fresh seafood. Based adjacent to the lifeboat pontoon in a former garage. It is very hipster and you won’t get huge portions or pints of beer here. But who can say no to a lobster roll, fresh oyster or crab scotch egg.
5 - Sams Fowey
Sams is a legendary amongst visitors and locals alike, put simply I remember having my 13th birthday dinner here, followed by 14th,15th etc,etc and now our children say can we go to sam’s for dinner. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion, just go. A laid back atmosphere; a menu that rarely changes because its so successful and great tunes playing in the background. You will wake up with a heavy head (cocktails) and a full belly after a night in sams.
6 - Harbour Cafe, Looe.
Seafood just won’t get any fresher, situated on the quay where the fishing boats land their catch. Food miles can’t get any lower. A seafood lovers paradise with Whole lobster shellfish platter’s, French Provençal Fish Stew’s all washed done with crisp wines.
7 - Longstore & Harbour BBQ, Charlestown.
Charlestown has some incredible eateries and is gradually becoming a foodie mecca with new one’s popping up all the time, there is plenty of exploring to be done. We have chosen these two because we have been and can fully recommend. Barbecued, smoked meats and veggies served on platters, washed down with craft beers.
8 - Hubbox, Pentewan Sands.
Serving up award-winning burgers and crafted drinks, Hub Box is a laidback place set right on the beach. Extensive menu offering prime cut or plant-based, it’s all about tasty food done the right way, making good times really mean good.
9 - Blue Peter Inn, Polperro.
Enter as strangers, leave as friends is the motto here. A fantastic free house set right by the water’s edge in this historic fishing village. Wide selection of ales and a great locally sourced menu. One of the quaintest pubs you will ever come across.
10 - The Fishermens chippy, Mevagissey.
You can’t beat Fish and chips if you visit Mevagissey, Another fishing village that has plenty of place’s to capture a taste of the sea. Walking the quay with a bag England's favourite dish can be dangerous experience with seagulls loving them just as much as we do. But it is worth the risk.
