Had an amazing Sunday roast here. Roast turkey for 3 and 1 pork loin. Everything was cooked just right. Thoroughly enjoyed it by the 4 of us! Nice and warm place with roaring fire, lovely ale and wonderful polite staff. Excellent!

Had a lovely time at the Ferryboat. The waiting staff were very attentive and helpful. The food service was a little slow on the evening we were there, but my goodness, it was worth waiting for. The sharing platter was freshly cooked and delicious, I would highly recommend it. We are looking to move into the area and will definitely be back.
