Although the restaurant was fairly quiet last night my meal was excellent. The mussels are delicious and every dish was cooked and presented well. Waiting staff were very helpful and attentive. Top marks.

We had not booked but expected little problem as Fowey was very quiet on a damp Wednesday evening in February. A friendly welcome from staff and after looking at the wine list and menu in the bar were taken through to our table. Everything was very fresh and local. Beautifully presented and very well cooked to our taste. The duck... More

We actually stayed at the Old Quay House through a good deal we found and dinner was included. We don't normally go for all inclusive as it can be a little limiting and have found historically that sometimes the meal as part of these deals is not that great. Dinner at Q clearly does not conform to that rule. There... More

Ate here Christmas Eve with my wife and Daughter. It's a lovely location and a very nice restaurant. Service was very polite and friendly, food was really good and price for a 'higher' end restaurant was very good. Will be amazing in summer to eat on the terrace! Portion sizes are reasonable but if you are a big eater then... More

We have dined here many times over the years and our last visit was as a couple on New Year's Eve. The dining room is very attractive, lighting is good and creates a very pleasant atmosphere. We ate from a special nye menu (3courses for £60) which offered limited choice but this was easily forgiven as the food was exceptional.... More

Visited The Old Quay House during the Christmas holiday week. We arrived at 1210 and were politely informed the restaurant opened at 1230. We were invited in, ordered drinks and chose our table in the empty restaurant by the window with excellent views. The meal was well presented,reasonable portion size,friendly but attentive service. The restaurant filled up slowly and the... More

A Relaxed Waterfront Restaurant.The bright restaurant leads out onto a spacious terrace where on a sunny day you can enjoy afternoon tea (the Cornish way of course, jam first!), A pre-dinner glass of fizz, or a long and lazy lunch. It's a great spot to watch life on the estuary unfold, from boats of all shapes and sizes to the local wildlife which includes resident swans and the occasional dolphin.Fowey River oysters, local scallops, West Country meat and Cornish cheeses... Hungry yet? 'Q' restaurant at The Old Quay House offers excellent dining in a relaxed, unstuffy setting. Forget unsmiling waiters, small portions and whispered conversations, dining here is all about fun and enjoyment - quality local and season produce features heavily on head chef Ben Bass'menu of creative, contemporary dishes.Our wine list, hand-picked by Britain's youngest Master of Wine, is pretty good too...
