“Excellent evening celebration”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

What a great evening made possible by proprietor Graham Dednum. Without doubt one of the best hosts you could ever meet.
He makes your night so special.
The food was glorious, we had 3 lamb Shanks,2 Malaysian Curries and 1 Gammon
and all had superb desserts.
Can't wait to go back again

“Good Service and food”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

My work colleagues and i have just started to use this restaurant having walked past it on numerous occasions on the way to the Greyhound. The layout is good and it has a pleasant outside area for smokers. Lots of fish on the menu, and I have tried the scallops for starters and the langoustines for main course. Both were excellently cooked and presented. My colleagues have tried the fish and chips and the steak pie and found them extremely tastyThere is a good atmosphere and all the staff and hosts are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Its also a pub so there are plenty of friendly locals to talk to .

“Fantastic service, excellent food A*”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We live in the village have used the ferryboat before but only just got around to writing a review.
We went in for a meal last week. The service we received was faultless, staff couldn't do enough for us. Staff were friendly. The owner was working the night we went him and he was approachable and chatted to us.
There is a wide range of dishes on the menu for lots of different tastes.
The food was excellent we both had the steak burgers and shared the cheese board for pudding.
