We called at the pub on the Saturday and they managed to squeeze us in for lunch on the Sunday. Very friendly staff and we were served within 10 minutes of arriving. I had the beef and my partner chose pork. The food was excellent and the accompanying vegetables also. If you're in the area I would highly recommend it.... More

We struck lucky as we hadn't booked, but got a table looking out the front window at a fantastic view across the Dart.The staff are friendly, the beer and food is good with no delays.

Lovely setting next to the river, however only a couple of tables overlook the view so book early to get the best seats. Pub is quaint and small. The food is very good. Drinks a bit expensive.

Stayed in Dartmouth for a week and ate here twice. I had the scallops to start which were lovely, followed by the mussels. My sister had the fish and chips and was a huge portion and great value for money. Would definitely recommend!

We spent NYE in the Ferry Boat, it was an absolute blast! A great atmosphere and lovely staff. It's a great little pub, full of character. Well worth a visit.

Parked, then walked down the hill to this beautiful pub, with, as they say, one of the best views from a pub anywhere. Good pint of Otter FBI, followed by some fresh tomato and oregano soup, sweet chilli squid and fresh chips. Everything was superb, accompanied by excellent service. Really good value and well worth a return visit.

It's hard to see how this tiny, low-ceilinged pub could ever be brought up to date but it's got so much charm as it is that there's really no need. It serves good beers and traditional pub grub plus a few more up-market dishes on the menu, but you have to book a long way ahead at busy times as... More
