The Old Quay House Hotel

Chic dining spot on Fowey’s picturesque waterfront

Nestled in Fowey’s winding pebbled pathways, The Old Quay House is a hidden gem in plain sight on the town’s busy Fore Street. Wander through the boutique hotel’s elegant champagne bar and stylish Q Restaurant to spectacular views of the estuary before you – the perfect spot for a glass of fizz before dinner or a long lunch with friends on the terrace in the summer sunshine.

With eleven chic and spacious rooms – each individually styled by local interior designer Kieron Cockley – spread across three floors of the historic townhouse, this seafront hideaway hass both style and comfort – along with unrivalled sea views.

Head chef Richard Massey and his band of chefs transform this cool coastal hotel into a West Country dining destination with a sophisticated menu of modern European dishes. Sourcing the finest fresh produce – Fowey River oysters, local scallops and Cornish lamb – lunch and dinner guests can look forward to an impressive culinary line-up served in a relaxed and unfussy setting.

After fuelling up on homemade granola and poached eggs and smoked salmon, burn off last night’s indulgences with a stroll along one of Fowey’s fabulous coastal walks (Ready Money Cove to Pokerris is a must-do) or explore the quirky Cornish town on foot.
