We had a lovely family Sunday lunch. The food was brilliant, roast beef cooked to perfection with giant Yorkshire puddings.
On booking we were asked about dietary requirements which resulted in my husband having is very own specially prepared gluten free gravy, which was great.
The team of staff are friendly.
A lovely place for a very good value, well cooked, locally sourced meal.
Thank you.
Highly recommend.

Thank Sarah G

We went to the Carew Arms for a local Saturday evening meal, we had read good things. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to our expectations.

Things started off well. My mojito was delicious and made with local rum. We shared some chorizo as a mini starter that was tasty.

The mains were average. A burger that could have been served in a Harvester and pork belly that was pretty good but a very small portion. The crispy chips were nice enough but the fries could have been frozen ones. The pudding was creme brûlée with granola on top that was akin to eating a cereal bar!

The service was a little slow, the two waitresses were pleasant enough. We did have to wait ten minutes to pay the bill despite chasing it up.

It was okay but for the prices paid we expected more.

We visited for a Friday evening meal, excellent service and fish & chips that were better than any others I have had.

Had lunch there today (18th March), took the family as a belated Mother's Day lunch. I was a little concerned as had read reviews saying the service wasn't very good, no sign of that while we were there. The food was great and the value of £22 for 3 course was excellent! Will definitely be going back!

My wife and I had a lovely dinner for two, 3 course meal with two cocktails and a pint of local ale. The menu is a little small, worth a read online before you book a table. We did see online a rib eye steak, however, when we arrived it wasn’t on the menu. I would have ordered everything, but was a little limited for my wife. I opted for the mussels, a shame they were not from Fowey but from the Teign valley. However, they were delicious. The pork belly with warm slaw and the corn fed chicken were great hits. The crunchy chips were great. We both had dessert, chocolate and rum pot with salted caramel and honeycomb and the sticky toffee pudding were delicious. Good attentive service. Advisable to book at it was busy and this was the out of season. Good to see the chefs source the food locally. Would visit again.
