Q Restaurant at The Old Quay House Fowey

Relaxed waterfront restaurant … Fowey River oysters, local scallops, West Country meat and Cornish cheeses … hungry yet?

‘Q’ restaurant at The Old Quay House offers excellent dining in a relaxed, unstuffy setting.

Forget unsmiling waiters, small portions and whispered conversations, dining here is all about fun and enjoyment – quality local produce features heavily on the menu of our Mediterranean-influenced dishes, prepared using classic techniques.

Our wine list, hand-picked by Britain’s youngest Master of Wine, is pretty good too …The bright restaurant leads out onto a spacious terrace where on a sunny day you can enjoy afternoon tea (the Cornish way of course, jam first!), a pre-dinner glass of fizz, or a long, lazy lunch. It’s a great spot to watch life on the estuary unfold, from boats of all shapes and sizes to the local wildlife which includes resident swans and the occasional dolphin.

Opening times:

Lunch: 12.30pm to 2.30pm (Easter to September) telephone the restaurant to confirm opening times all other times of the year.
Dinner: 7pm to 9pm daily.
