This pub has the best view of the Dart and can be accessed by ferry so drinking and driving is not a problem. This prices have gone up a little from last year.

The renowned Ferryboat Inn deserves its reputation. Amazing location on the banks of the Dart, good ales and great food. What's not to love? The ham, Brie and cranberry baguette was perfect. Not an underripe soft cheese in sight. I want to move to Dittisham...More

Looks great from the outside and nice enough inside - not hugely welcoming though. Pint of ale £4.20 and 1/2 pint sprite £1.80. However nearly dropped through floor when charged £3 for an orange juice! Even worse when it ran out of date in April...More
