Took my children and a friend of theirs here for supper one Saturday. The children loved the restaurant and it has been recently refurbished, so everything looks very fresh and appealing. The food was great, but the service was all over the place. I put this down to the fact that they were incredibly busy that night. Worth going to.

We have been to The Ferry on many occasions prior to the most recent and had a variety of experiences from the sublime to the ridiculous. This visit highlighted again that the location, food and ambience are all on their way up! The problem, which dampened our whole experience was the continued poor service. We waited for so long for... More

We booked an early lunch to avoid any service problems having read previous reviews. Waited in reception area as staff walked by. Once at our table, drinks were very slow coming considering only a few diners in building, food was average, ham dry, chips soggy, other dishes similarly overdone yet only warm when there were few other diners so no...

It was lunch time and after being let down by the fact that the asparagus we came to pick at the Local PYO had run out, we needed some kind of a good lunch to compensate for the negative experience. When we walked in the interior looked quite amazing plus the view onto the Thames what could go wrong? Well,... More

Lovely food with a great service, very busy for lunch so I do recommend pre booking. The waitress was very good and provided us with all the specials. Great deco inside which is nice. The only downfall is the car park is small, so you do need to drive around a bit to find somewhere.
