Lovely spot on the Estuary, good selection of food and drink along with some board games for a bit of fun. Large seating terrace but also plenty of space in doors if the weather is not great.

Good pub grub, wholesome and reasonably priced. Great and friendly service, dog friendly, live sports in bar area and terrace to enjoy the sun. Front row seat for local regatta and firework display (book early). Amazing views from all areas and restaurant area available for booking. Live music and special events throughout the year (pig racing is a must see). The team at the Ferry Inn look forward to your visit
