My husband and I are still talking about the truly atrocious service we experienced at the Old ferry Inn last weekend. We actually can't think of any time (and we have eaten in restaurants far and wide) when we were made to feel so unwelcome,...More

We visited the old Ferry Inn for an evening meal whilst staying at the local Caravan/Camping Site. The menu choice was excellent and caters for all tastes. There was even a broad children's menu to cater for the younger members of our party. Parking is...More
