Love coming to the Ferry Boat Inn. Always welcoming and accommodating for people with dogs. Coco loves it here and I love the positive greetings. Had brilliant Duck salad and Cottage Pie and Coco always gets a lovely sausage so she feels included. No rushing and no pressure to clear out. Totally relaxed and enjoyed the location. Walked along the... More

Had a lovely morning stroll along the sea front and at the end of the walk was the Ferry boat. Wonderful coffee and home made cake. Recharged the batteries while sitting in the sunshine . The staff were efficient and friendly and the prices ok too. The menu sounded good but we hadn't time to stay for lunch. Would reccomend

Visited whilst on business for an evening meal. Goos selection of food, fish pie and lamb shank are a god choice. Selection of real ales and wine was good, great service.

Everytime I have eaten at the Ferry Boat it has always been delicious. I have never had a bad meal here! The pub is a lovely timber framed, old Tolly public house building based on the waterfront of Felixstowe foot ferry with great walks and views all around. 10/10 every time!

Would not travel here, especially if you have young Children, you will be made to feel like lower class citizens, not even "Children should be seen and not heard" applies here, they can not even be seen!! Food is not great, certainly no high qualifications needed, spoke to management about our dissatisfaction and he couldn't have cared less, very rude... More

We enjoyed a very nice quality meal in this bustling establishment together with well kept beer. The fresh fish options on the specials notice are excellent. However - been many times previously but this time we felt that some items on the menu seemed very pricey indeed, the menu selection was also unnecessarily vast. It is also beginning to resemble...

We visit here often when visiting family. On this occasion there are a few comments that made our stay not a five star ⭐️. We placed our order and was told that our daughter couldn't have the lasagne as they had run out; although my husband was able to have one. They said it was because the lasagnes were pre-prepared...
