Called in for a bite to eat. Good menu for local pub. Good prices and when the plates arrived the portions were enormous. I had the steak and kidney pie, chips and peas. Kidneys very tasty, steak little fatty in places. Friendly staff. Will definitely return.

Excellent food and great beer from a pub on the high street in Fowey. Portions are above average for a really good price. I have been here a few time and the atmospher is great. There is also a few seats outside so you can people watch

We ate here for dinner and had a really nice meal. It was through the week and well and truly in the off season so the pub was dead. I had the fish and chips which was an absolute whopper and I failed to clear the huge plate of fish, chips, coleslaw and mushy peas. I had a pint of... More

A great little pub with a limited menu, but the lugger is more about last minute eating than somewhere you would book to eat. Good ambiance but staff could take some lessons in Customer Service after all a smile costs nothing!

We stayed in Fowey for several nights and gave this unassuming pub a try for dinner on our last night having read some reviews on TripAdvisor. We are glad we did. The food is well presented, freshly prepared and servings are large. The pub itself is basic inside but warm and friendly. If you're looking for good quality pub food... More

The Lugger is a pub with good beer and good pub food at a reasonable price. There is a specials board which usually features some fresh fish which will be nicely cooked and served with a friendly smile.

This pub needs a facelift but was friendly and welcoming. Normal beers available and pricing in line with the market. We ordered Belly Pork and was amazed at the portions and quality of this meal. Could not finish! So the moral of the story is don't be put off by the interior excellent food!

Looks like the food is good here, but we only visited for drinks on a Saturday evening. The interior is a little bland and not that atmospheric, Always feels like being in a social club rather than a traditional pub. However, appears popular with locals, and not a bad pint of ale.

Visited on a Friday lunchtime and decided to eat in the bar area. My partner chose the beef and dumpling stew and I ordered a crab sandwich (when in Cornwall). The stew was a delicious and plentiful portion, my crab sandwich was the best I have had (including the Padstow one I had the day before). It was crammed with... More

For a change, I didn't have the Sunday Roadt. Had the meaty ribs in BBQ sauce. Wonderful. Meaty, tender, great sauce and perfect corn on the cob.
