I have visited few times with my family and friends. Dinner is a bit expensive but really lovely and presentation is beautiful. Lunches much more affordable, great coffees and desserts. There was amazing mulled wine in Christmas period. There are two fireplaces and if you get the seat by them you don't want to leave! Beautiful setting, by the river... More

I have visited the ferry on a few occasions now, more so because of its location than anything else as it is a convenient location to meet my in-laws. However I dread going. I myself have worked in the service industry. On each occasion I have found the service to be lacking severely. My most recent my small group had... More

FerryAdmin, General Manager at The Ferry, responded to this review

Dear Niamh, I would be grateful if you could contact myself directly at the pub as we are all really interested in gathering more detail from your meal with us. You have stated that you were waiting 3 hours for a one course meal which is simply untrue. This would never happen and it's a shame that you have chosen... More

I've been here so many times! I used to go here when I was young and I still go here if I eat out with my family or friends. You are guaranteed to have GORGEOUS food and in the summer it's lovely to sit outside by the river.

Very good, fun evening. Food was delicious and very good value. On the night, service was very good and friendly. Wine package was good value - but white wine not delivered chilled, although did chill in the table wine cooler.

Seven of us popped in here for lunch on a cold winter's day. The view from the terrace was lovely though not suitable due to temperature. All had different food and all were excellent. The two course fixed price deal is very good value. Also there is a children's menu which is just right. There were two ales on hand... More

After a brisk, fresh Boxing Day walk with family, it was lovely to pop into The Ferry for a welcome drink and nibbles. The homeliness of a real open fire was very welcome.

Family of 8 arrived for a pre booked boxing day meal, we had already ordered our food a couple weeks before. When we arrived we sat in the bar as we were told our table wasn't ready. Still 35 minutes on no one had updated us, so when we asked it was almost as if we had been forgotten about.... More

We signed up for the special 4 course New Year's Eve dinner which required a deposit and pre-order. This gave the impression that this was to be a well organised delivery of good customer service. Unfortunately it didn't look good from the time we arrived to find a queue at the downstairs front desk with people simply wanting to go... More

Where do I start...I came here years ago and remember it being really nice, this time was a disaster...from the minute we walked in no-one was at the door to take us to our table for 20 minutes, so went to the bar. We got taken to our table which was blocking a fire exit and my partner could not... More

Hi Nikki, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review following your experience with us. I'm sorry the table you were allocated was not the one you were looking for, the tables by the window and balcony are always the most sought after! Sorry we did not have any other tables in the restaurant available at that time,... More

I have visited the Ferry Inn a few times and each time have found the food well cooked and well presented. Lovely river fronted setting. Can be a bit noisy in the diining areas.
