On Cornwall’s foodie map, Appleton’s has been transformed by friendly owners, Andy and Lyndsey Appleton – offering a tasteful space that sits at the hub of Fowey’s busy Fore Street. The two storey restaurant welcomes dogs on the ground floor where they will be looked after with a water bowl and a potential treat or two. It’s a super relaxed, low key and minimal setting to enjoy some seriously good food – all dishes are created with an Italian ethos using fresh, seasonal Cornish produce. Foodies are welcomed to go big and tuck into flavoursome plates with the Appleton’s twist. Cool and modern, the restaurant is classed as ‘fine dining’ because of the quality of the food, though there’s a real ‘come as you are vibe’ and a fuss-free service that is friendly and informative allowing you to fully embrace your dining experience with your four-legged friend at your side. Oh and did we mention there are 11 Negroni’s on the menu?
Dogs on leads are welcome to join you for brunch, lunch and dinner in the downstairs area. If planning on bringing your dog, Appleton’s do ask if you can mention this when booking so that they can best accommodate you.
Situated at the hub of the town, close to the river Fowey – it’s just minutes to a little sandy cove at the foot of the Whitehouse Tower. A stick’s throw away there’s also the foot-ferry across to the fishing-village of Polruan – a prime position to soak up the south Cornish coast.
The Fowey ‘Hall Walk’ is a brilliant circular walk, starting with a ride on the Caffa Mill ferry and returning to Fowey on the Polruan ferry. The nearest seasonal dog-friendly beach (30th September to Easter) is Ready Money Cove – with its French Chateau-like fortress above – a ten-minute stroll, where you will find St Catherine’s Castle and National Trust owned, Covington Woods – climb up through the winding paths that lead to expansive open fields, where your dog can run free.
Appleton’s offers a great space for us canines to settle down and relax to some tempting sniffs – I was definitely getting the wafting aroma of SAUSAGE! There are no airs and graces here, it’s all very relaxed. I received a friendly welcome from Lyndsay, and was hoping to meet resident Dachshund, Gnocci but he was otherwise engaged. Maybe next time – I know my humans were completely sold on their lunch, so we will definitely be back.. maybe I’ll be treated to some sausage on our next visit too!
