Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The Toll Bar enjoys a prominent trading position on Lostwithiel Street in the heart of this popular town on Cornwall’s south coast.

Fowey is a natural harbour and welcomes as many as 7,000 visiting yachts each year. It is a very popular destination for holiday makers, and as such, the Toll Bar sees a significant uplift in trade during the summer season.

Situated on the opposite bank, also at the mouth of the river, is the village of Polruan and a regular passenger ferry connects the two during the summer months. A car ferry runs from Fowey to Bodinnick, a little further up the river.

The Business

The Toll Bar trades from Monday to Saturday all year round, opening from 9am until late, with last food orders at 9pm.

We are advised the gross sales for the year ending April 2015 were £195,194.

Further accounting information will be made available to prospective purchasers following a viewing in the normal manner.
