We enjoyed both of our lunches at The Globe. Although very quiet on both occasions, the hosting was welcoming and warm. Our dog was very welcome too and given biscuits and water. Our 2 year old son was also well looked after and accommodated well. We had the open sandwiches on both visits - the Croque Monsieur and Madam and... More

Visited this lovely restaurant recently on a busy Saturday lunchtime, very friendly and cosy, had a cream tea which was beautifully presented. Great scones, with lovely strawberry jam. The food looked good all round and next time we visit Fowey we would certainly like to have lunch or dinner there. Service was really good which was amazing as it was... More

We ate had lunch which was very good, my sister had the fish curry and it was packed with fish! Made freshly with fish she liked. My mushroom and kale pasta was also... More

Firstly I'd like to say this is one bad experience of what looks like mainly positive reviews so please don't let this put you off going. This is our first visit to the globe and consistently our last. We visited for Sunday lunch around 3ish. It took a long while to be seated, only half the restaurant was full and... More

After walking around Fowey with our dog last Sunday afternoon, it was around 2:00 clock and my wife and I were trying to find somewhere suitable for a "Nice Roast Sunday Lunch". Surprisingly many of the places had sold out of Beef or were just not suitable - until we found The Globe. At our request, we were seated near... More

Very much bistro style with good range of local food and friendly service. Interesting wine list too. Three stars seems harsh but having eaten at another close restaurant and given that four stars this was not quite so good in the style and atmosphere. Paper napkins, bread and extra and tables rather too close to one another. Well cooked food... More

We came here on the scond night of our visit to Fowey because the menu showed seafood curry which appealed, the food was so good that we came back again a couple of evenings later. The mussels were delicious, really tasty and loads of them, seafood curry fantastic, linguine just lovely and the pork belly is the best I have... More

Description
Originally a Posting House where people could 'hire' horses and get 'victuals', The Globe has been in Fowey for around 400 years. It has had many guises over the years but has always been a place of hospitality. Since taking over the building in March this year, it has been our philosophy to produce fantastic food using the very best ingredients Cornwall has to offer along with the warmest Cornish hospitality.

Our Head Chef, Glynn Wellington, is Fowey born and bred, and proud to be Cornish and utilise the wonderful produce on our doorsteps. You may see him collecting the bread from Quay Bakery, just 50 yards away from the restaurant, or picking wild garlic in the fields around Fowey. Our meat comes from Kittows of Kilhallon just 3 miles away, and our mussels from beds about a mile away by sea. Our coffee is hand roasted here in Cornwall and our beers are all brewed in St Austell. Even our bubbly is Cornish from the award winning Camel Valley, near Bodmin.

Over the coming months we will be restoring the letting rooms upstairs to their former glory and then be able to offer the finest Cornish food, drink and hospitality, right here in the heart of Fowey.
