Sunday 13th March 2016…Fowey

20160313_123101.jpgAs a reward for the continuing work on boxes (sound like a Government Minister….), we decided to do the half hour drive over to Fowey. Magnificent weather yet again. We parked in Readymoney cove (free till next week!) and explored the little beach ( above), and then walked into Fowey past a series of wonderful houses, all in tip-top condition 20160313_124006.jpgmaking us think this was another of those places referred to as Kensington-on-sea. As we came into town we were caught by a menu board for ‘The Fat Cap and Brisket’, so we went in for a light lunch. We were really glad we did, a wonderful experience. Caring staff, terrific menu, bargain prices, view of the sea…what more could anyone ask? It has only been open 3 weeks apparently, according to one of the owners, but we will be returning with family as soon as we can. It is really satisfying when you find a restaurant you like and can undoubtedly rely on. Fowey is what some people might regards as twee, but like Dartmouth where we used to live it is in my opinion ‘improved’, and I like it a lot. In many ways it is similar to Dartmouth, location pretty as a picture, views across to an equally pretty town on the other side of the creek, ferry services, historic buildings, nice independent shops, good cafes and restaurants, spectacular walks…..really what more could you ask for?
