We are lucky to arrive by boat from Dartmouth. The Ferry Boat has a great riverside site. Inside is cosy, friendly staff, great beer, including my favourite, Doom Bar. The food is good, big portions, varied menu, good value for money.

We ate dinner here on a Sunday. Having enjoyed lots of local seafood (their fish and chips did look good!) we both opted for the chicken and beef curry (yes they were have to give us a 50/50 portion). It was a good choice, of...More
