Description: Enjoy the very best of Cornish food, cooked to perfection, in this relaxed and friendly riverside location. The restaurant looks out across the beautiful River Fowey. In summer the outdoor dining terrace is perfect for a light lunch, or al fresco dining in the evening. In the winter a wood burning stove transforms the Restaurant into a cosy and intimate delight.

“Great menu, well prepared.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We ate in the restaurant for both nights of our stay, primarily because on the first night there were so many good dishes I had to return to sample my second favourite.
The service was attentive but not intrusive and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list.
The cooking and presentation of the food was excellent, just the correct sized portions and no further seasoning required, couldn't fault it. The wine list was very inclusive and the prices were very reasonable.
When we are in the area again we shall return for more

Requests to exclude an ingredient from both my partner and my order were ignored. Service was very poor and we felt ignored. The rump steak was also very tough and lacked flavour.

“Dinner for two”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

It is many years since I had dinner at The Cormorant and I was not disappointed with our visit - the meal was outstanding, the weather was perfect and one really has to make a visit to appreciate the views of the River Fowey - we had a window table and so what could be better.

Shall certainly be visiting again

“Superb cuisine”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Gorgeous, innovative menu, in a super location - and with rooms of course! The tastes produced by the chefs were first class and beyond. A fabulous dining experience every time, served by wonderfully accommodating and knowledgable staff - with a great wine cellar, at sensible prices too. Atmosphere added to by tasteful and totally appropriate background music, that varied with the days. We loved that it was never crowded, we always had space to eat, talk and enjoy. Perfect for a couples venue, with the most romantic river views.

Excellent food, wonderful views and although a little expensive I must say it was well worth it. We will be eating there again
