Having spent the day kayaking, we were really glad to stop at this great restaurant. It was amazing service. Almost too quick. I enjoyed a delicious mushroom risotto while my husband had a 'small' fish and chips. We really liked the fact that there were three portion sizes. I managed a yummy banoffi pie too. Well worth a visit. Good... More

We dined here for breakfast we all opted for the full English this was absolutely beautiful al totally fresh ingredients ... We have tried many restaurants in Dartmouth for breakfast including the well known acclaimed Al fresco I have to say that the floating bridge breakfast was the best by far . At £5.00 too just brilliant value

We've eaten here before and I was a bit disappointed to find that there was no fish pie on the menu this time. But I had a very tasty fish platter starter, we both had the Chicken Fahitas which were delicious, and you could decide your own chilli requirement.... a nice idea. We had a very quaffable ) (menu substitute)... More

We ate in the bar area and selected a starter and fish main dish each. Prices were reasonable, but be warned that the portions are very large, and although the cod and chips were well cooked, the hake from the specials board was over-cooked and dry. Wine a bit pricey.

4 pints of beer and 1 bowl of chips and 1 bowl of cheesy chips £25 !!! The waitress gave us a bowl of chips and our bowl of cheesy chips to another table . So we had to wait for her to re order our cheesy chips . The service we received at the bar was very poor

Set alongside the beautiful river dart in the estuary at Dartmouth, The Floating Bridge is the latest addition to the Quality Inns portfolio. When on your Devon holiday, be sure to visit this quaint old fashioned pub. Enjoy the warm atmosphere in the bar or restaurant, or why not sit by the river and watch the boats in the Marina or the Higher Ferry transporting the cars to Kingswear. Relax with a glass of wine or Pimm's, why not try the fresh crab salad!
