Fresh seafood is landed by local fishermen; aged rib-eye steaks are sourced from farms on our doorstep.
Our chefs create seasonal menus using the best local ingredients, complemented by Cornish-inspired flavours such as samphire from the beaches and herbs foraged from our kitchen garden.
From lazy breakfasts and light lunches to family feasts and beach-ready picnics, we’re all about flexibility. Our restaurants and menus are just as appealing to children as they are to adults, whether little ones favour boiled eggs and burgers, or wholesome, organic baby food.
Our chef and suppliers
Our Head Chef Wesley Pratt has over 20 years’ experience working in the kitchens of luxury hotels and local restaurants – but as a parent, he also knows how to cater for the foodie demands of the whole family.
Wes and his team have got to know our local suppliers, meaning that only the freshest and most flavoursome ingredients feature on our menus. Seafood is sourced from a small family business, Fish For Thought, while our eggs are laid by free-range hens at Colin Carter’s Eggs, near Truro. Award-winning artisan ice cream comes from Treleavens, churned at Tretoil Farm in the north Cornish countryside. We also serve the finest Cornish tipples: Camel Valley wines, Fowey Brewery ales and Tarquin’s gin, distilled in the southwest.
We like to make mealtimes easy and convenient for families. There’s an all-day dining menu to choose from at your leisure, and our chef can provide fresh, pureed baby food from 7am-9pm. You’re also welcome to have meals delivered to your room, with room service available from 7.30am to 9.15pm.
During the day
Breakfast is very much a family affair. Even the youngest guests can help themselves to the buffet and pile their plates with cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, pastries and muffins. In addition to the continental buffet, our plated options are designed to fortify all ages for an active, fun-packed day ahead.
After breakfast, the Morning Room Bar is the perfect place for a quiet coffee with a newspaper – or take your drinks al fresco and watch the children playing in the gardens from our outdoor terrace.
Lunch is informal, with a full children’s menu and a lighter menu for parents. At Sunday lunchtime, we pull out the stops for a traditional three-course roast, which is also very popular with locals. If you’d rather be out exploring during the daytime, we can pack a picnic for the beach or suggest the best local places to eat.
At Fowey Hall, afternoon tea is seriously special, with handmade sandwiches and scones, sweet treats and loose-leaf teas.
In the evening
Because we know young diners often like to eat early, a children’s High Tea is served from 5pm-6pm daily. Or, if you prefer to sit down for dinner together, we offer a flexible all-day menu, which means you can grab a bite whenever it suits you.
Once the children are tucked up in bed, catch up on time as a couple. Tuck into Cornish cuisine, admire the view, and chat at the bar. If you’d rather eat informally, we offer light bites to enjoy on the outdoor terrace – the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the River Fowey. Already settled in front of the lounge fire? Our focus on casual dining means you can enjoy dinner wherever and however you like.
As the evening goes on, get comfy with a drink or head over to the bar. If you like to keep it simple, we offer excellent local beers and artisan spirits, or you might prefer to try something new, choosing from a menu of creative cocktails and mocktails.
