Posh expensive food options on board. Only two ales (Doombar and Landlord). But a friendly welcome.

Atmosphere of a morgue (lunchtime) and sky high drinks prices. Avoid.

Went to the Ferryboat for Sunday lunch, mainly as a result of reading the (more recent) reviews on this site.

The beefburger was underwhelming, the fish and chips were definitely substandard (wet, crumbly and oily, not fresh and firm). Food took a long time to arrive, staff weren't particularly polite, or attentive. Nobody asked "how the meal was" (else I'd have told 'em). The only time we saw a turn of speed from the staff was when we got up and walked towards the door -- always a sure fire way of getting the bill quick that one.

Upon rechecking the "positive" reviews below, it's interesting to note that a sequence of 6 gushingly-positive reviews were all posted between 8 & 9 Nov 2010, all left by users who have posted no other reviews. And all joined the site on the day that they left their only review. And three of those users claim to visit the pub regularly. What are the chances of that, eh? S'pose I should have been paying more attention?

My advice - go somewhere else.

We have visited this pub many times without our children and we have had generally pleasant evenings. However, do not take your children to this place as you will be met with a very abrasive attitude if your kids do any little thing wrong. NOT CHILD FRIENDLY! We will not be going back.

Another pub next door to the greyhound.... And here are all the punters! Extensive menu and they were still accommodating enough to let me change the meal a bit without charging extra. Great service. Landlord was a bit ropey (beer, not the fella behind the bar) but I often find it doesnt travel well.
