Steve and I stumbled across The Dwelling House on a boiling hot bank holiday Monday in Fowey. We had just arrived and settled ourselves into our Bed and Breakfast when tummy rumbles started happening. We took the short walk from our B&B, the Foye Old Exchange, into the town centre. We wanted somewhere that we could sit outside and we were lucky enough to have the last table in the corner of the Dwelling House’s beautiful courtyard garden. We were given menus by a friendly waitress and our drinks order was taken. Steve had a sparkling elderflower and I had a sparkling water. The sun was out in full force and we were both needing to quench our thirst.
We ordered off the daily specials menu. Steve had the local oak smoked duck breast salad served with Cornish kea plum jam and I had the local hand picked crab salad. Just what we both needed on this stunning early summer’s day.
Both dishes were beautifully presented and simply delicious. What with the sunshine and the lovely courtyard setting it was a perfect introduction to the town. The Dwelling House have a full menu and the cakes looked and smelt delicious. They are all baked on the premises and it was hard to resist a dessert with the wonderful aromas wafting into the garden. I will make sure that if I ever visit Fowey again (which I am sure I will) then I will visit The Dwelling House for afternoon tea!
