user reviews of the Lugger Inn, Fowey

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This is The Lugger in Fowey (and not the one in Polruan!!) A single little bar in the town centre with a couple of tables at the front on the roadside. Pleasant enough little boozer with St.Austell ales and they were keen to promote their crab sandwiches. Not many customers as it was a midweek November day but like most Fowey pubs it will get busier in the season (and at weekends and Xmas when there are more tourists). It was an hotel at one time as can been seen by the old sign. Nautical decor and some patterned glass windows add to the feel and the outside is quite attractive overall. Worth a visit.

Try a few St.Austell HSD's sat out on one of the 3 or 4 benches on the front... Always a nice way to wash down the excellant fish chowder or mussels in white wine...

You can watch the posh families passing by...

Great pub.

Not sure all the reviews below are for the pub in Fowey or the one with the same name across the bay in Polruan? I've been in the Fowey one recently, but only had a single pint of St Austell Trelawney, as I had to drive later on. Nice enough pint, but the burger and chips I had with it was rather average. The missus had what she described as a delicious crab sandwich and I must say it had an awful lot of crabmeat spilling out of it! Friendly enough atmosphere, but it was a rather quiet November weekday, so may not be typical.

Nice to see Simon and Emma are still running a Polruan pub albeit a different one. Well the Tribute is very good. They do it justice without doubt. Sigh of relief. Can still come to Polruan and get a good pint. Haven't tried the food yet but will post when we do. And no, I'm not the landlord... But me and my fiancé are called Simon and Emma. :)

Just OK. Only Tribute or Tinners on, the Tinners was ok. The seats outside are a plus as to be honest the interior is really nothing to write home about, and I'd agree with the comment below regarding the restaurant atmosphere.

Strange one this. If you were sat in there without a view of the bar, you’d think you were in one of those sea-side fish & chip restaurants, and not a pub at all. Just to add to that feeling there were several kids running around, even at 10:00 on a Friday night. And plenty of people eating fish & chips.

The bar itself is quite traditional though, and they stock the usual selection of St. Austell’s beers (don’t any of their pubs have a guest?) plus Cornish Rattler and Blackthorn ciders.
