During the Regatta week the only place to drink in Fowey is the King of Prussia. Based on Town Quay the King of Prussia is in the centre of the action of the regatta. Serving the local Rattler cider it is the perfect spot to watch the festivities and the fire works on Monday evening. If the King Of Prussia is a little lively then the next best place to watch the river is the Royal Fowey Yacht Club.
