This restaurant is closed and no longer exists. The restaurant in its place is called Haveners. Lovely views over the estuary and very popular as a result

So sad to see this restaurant in a prime position in Fowey, in such a terrible dilapidated condition. A real eyesore. Just hope that new owners will make something special of this place and it doesn't just become the same as many others - fish...More

The Restaurant has been closed for a while but has been bought by St Austell brewery who promise to reopen it before the summer. Hopefully it will be as good as previously and will pay the gas bill!

We were in Fowey on 3rd October 2015 for 1 week. Very disappointed and disgusted to see the state of Food for Thought. Fowey is a beautiful place. Have previously enjoyed meals there

Be aware that Food for Thought has now closed. Allegedly, the owner was charged with stealing rather than paying for his gas over a number of years and hence, the site is a very sad one as you go onto the quay.

We always end up here, it never disappoints. Great location right on the rivers edge. Dog friendly in the outside terrace that's ok because it's under cover. Staff attentive and the specials are often good.

Lovely place! Got a great seat with a view. Food portions HUGE - great value. I had the "simple" fish and chips which I expected to be much smaller. Husband enjoyed the steak baguette. Chips with both were great. Much nicer than one of the...More

We came here on our last holiday to Cornwall in 2014 and were so impressed with the food we came back this year. As the title of this review states this is no understatement, it really is top notch with local clam, red mullet, mussels...More
