We visited here to meet friends and we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable in the bar area before we were shown to our table in the main part of the restaurant. My only gripe of our whole stay was I found the room a little on the noisy side due to the style of the room and... More

Visited the ferry boat for Sunday lunch purely by chance as we were in the area and were very impressed Had the belly pork for a starter, the portion was huge, you could easily have added a few veg and called it a main. Well cooked with excellent crackling, really good start. Had roast beef for main, again well cooked... More

Having heard fantastic things about the Ferryboat and also living in West Butterwick we decided to try it out for my Birthday meal. The decor and design of the pub was beautiful, it is by far the nicest and most welcoming pub I have ever eaten in. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, drinks orders... More

Lovely building, and made to feel very welcome. We arrived earlier than our booking, but this was no bother at all and we were seated quickly and our drinks brought over. Was... More

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here. Great that there is more choice than just roast dinners. Laura and Shane were both very attentive. The restaurant was very busy, yet there was no delays. I will be returning with my 10% discount voucher.
