An impromptu, out of season visit by boat to one of my favourite pubs. We were the only people there and ordering food was not a problem. We kept it simple to ham, egg and chips and we were as happy as we would have been ordering the finest meal at the finest location. You must visit - the location... More

This is a good waterside pub serving great pub food and a fine selection of Cornish ales. The owners are very welcoming and the place has character. Lots of room to sit outside and admire the views of the Fowey.

We visited the Fishermans Arms after a very pleasant walk. There were artists sketching and painting the wonderful scenery nearby. I had sustained a nasty insect sting towards the end of the walk & the landlady immediately offered me first aid of antihistamine cream. We enjoyed good, fresh, delicious food, a warm welcome; with first aid at hand - who... More

Had a few drinks here and a meal. Pub sits on the river which has a lovely outlook but not quite the warm Cornish welcome that we have experienced elsewhere. Food was very much pub grub which looks to be the same for lunch and dinner with a few specials. Our meals were served hot and promptly but nothing special.

Ate here yesterday. Lovely pub with charming host. Lovely variety of real ales and very good food. My husband had the lasagne I had a steak from the specials board both meals superb and we'll presented. Well worth the visit despite the long walk back up the steep hill to get home.

You can sit outside with a pleasant view over the river and a good pint or go inside where plenty of locals make for a real pub atmosphere. Food is pub grub and no complaints from a party of 6. Maybe not worth a detour but if you do, you won't be disappointed

We didn't eat here, but the food looks great; but it's the fabulous location that makes this a delightful place to sit and enjoy the view.

Even choosing fish & chips (thinking we were looking out over the sea it was a safe bet), these were unimpressive generic frozen ingredients, no sign of using local ingredients. A shame. Signs of being a favoured local for drinks and live music though so just grab a drink and enjoy the view and eat elsewhere.
