Q

28 Fore Street Fowey PL23 1AQ

The restaurant of the boutique Old Quay House Hotel, Q has a sharp contemporary decor and is one of the best restaurants in the area, partly for its food – which uses the best of the area's local produce from land and sea – but also for its wonderful terrace, which has great views across the River Fowey. It's a great spot to have a long lazy lunch or a glass of something cold and bubbly and watch life on the estuary unfold, from boats coming and going out to sea to the local wildlife, which includes resident swans and even the occasional dolphin. They do light dishes and sandwiches at lunchtime – and a popular set lunch menu – along with more substantial fare in the evening, again on two- and three-course fixed-price menus. An airy place with a relaxed atmosphere and really excellent food.
