The British have always loved their pubs. Pubs are simply the best place to be to unwind, enjoy old and new company, and let go off inhibitions for a while. Pubs remain the best place to be to socialise with almost everyone in the community, both friends and strangers, and share an anecdote or two. And nowadays, alongside great beer many pubs server great food too. In Fowey in Cornwall, there are several pubs that both locals and tourists alike frequent. After enjoying the superb sights of Fowey, spend the night at any of these gastro pubs for some tasty food and beer and learn another thing or two about what makes these people so loved by the rest of Britain.
Considered a must-try for their steak pie and granary bread, The Lugger Inn pub has been a favourite watering hole for locals and tourists alike. Whether you go there at lunch or in the evening, you can expect to be served with the same Cornish hospitality that is known the world over. Down freshly caught crabs, mussels, scallops, and plaice with a hefty mug of beer while watching locals and engaging them in some interesting conversation.
With a traditional pub giving an excellent view of the Fowey River estuary, The King of Prussia prides itself of great food, excellent company, and authentic ales all complementing the superb views of the Fowey Estuary. This is a favourite with guests staying in Fowey cottages at the waters edge. A must-have is their Cornish ham with sliced tomato drizzled with wholegrain mustard, their Cornish brie, and their Cornish smoked salmon crostini. Enjoy your favourite beverage with pan fried scallops or the herb-crusted salmon fillet, soft shell crab, black pudding, or their famous beetroot salad.
If you need a break from beer and love coffee, you will love Pinky Murphys Café where great food meets great coffee meets great company. With its eclectic take on all things modern and old, there simply is no making sense of the way the pub is organized. Its tables are never numbered. Instead they are named after famous singers, old and new. For coffee lovers, sample their ristretto, espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, mocha, and latte. Dont like coffee? Get their Pinkys FatBoy, hot chocolate, or a mug of Bovril. Cornish Cream Tea is served as well as other sweet delicacies. If you dont have cravings for these, try their ciabatta, steak pasty, homemade quiche, or even their baked sweet potato with warm goats cheese.
For excellent views of the Fowey River, take a seat in one of The Galleon Inn Restaurants chairs and watch local boatmen and fishermen unload their days catch at the nearby docks. Sample their Cajun chicken or their famous scampi. Share their fish platter with anyone else in the pub and you will see Fowey hospitality and friendship at its best. Just do not visit the place during Friday nights because it can really be frustrating to wait for a vacant table. Their steak and ale pie as well as Panini are simply a must-try.
Fowey pubs are not your ordinary watering holes. As there are many tourists visiting Fowey, pubs maintain a certain degree of decorum that will keep visitors coming back for more.
