The beer in this pub in consistently good especially the Shipstone's and Castle Rock beers. Its just a shame that everything else about this pub is fairly mediocre, which is a shame because it used to be fantastic back in the day before the modernisers started hacking it around.

In the interests of public service I thought I'd update this feedback. I live locally and visit The Ferry Inn frequently. Overall it has improved. If you visit when the manager is on duty, which is most of the time, he keeps his staff cheerful and always has a bit of friendly banter. The service at the bar is slow but just about tolerable. When it's busy ie: sunny with outside diners, the kitchens can't cope with demand and there is an unacceptable delay for food. The beer is always good!! Some of the staff need a kick up the arse and when the manager isn't around the service is hit and miss and the staff aren't attentive enough. The garden is large but isn't anything to write home about and is definately not suitable for children OR DOGS so don't take them. The food is good nearly always. Overall it's a good local and we feel lucky to have it on the door step but nothing's perfect and with a bit more polish and strong leadership this pub could be a 'destination restaurant'. As it is, it's a good (not excellent) pub ... go and try it and buy some beer and support the local pub.

My wife and I went for a lunchtime drink and a sandwich. We're reluctant to use The Ferry Inn because we've usually had poor service over the past 3 or 4 years. We decided to try again on one of our rare days off together. We only wanted the ham and cheese sandwich, not much to ask for in an English pub. Got the drinks, got the table, ordered the food, opened the tab ... sorry - no 'am. No 'am? (ham). We ordered something else but on leaving we were asked if everything had been ok ... apparently there hadn't been any ham for 2 days. Why not? Why hadn't someone just got in the car and gone to buy some? It's not difficult Mr Manager. Just another, albeit small, nail in the coffin of The Ferry Inn.

We had recently had a Christmas meal here and I must say that I experienced the WORST service I have ever had to endure. The bar staff were slow and didn't know which of the wines on the menu were red and which were white. They also struggled to find the spirits when ordered. On top of this they had run out of a lot of the wine on the menu, including the Wine of the Month displayed on chalk board behind the bar - citing a missed wine delivery as the problem. Then the food. The food was exteremly poorly cooked and displayed. The waiting staff did not have the slightest idea what they were doing. Drinks orders never arrived - the waitress didn't even know what Staropramen was - it was one of their main draft beers behind the bar. A person on another table has their meal tipped over them. The manager was the only competent person in the place, but of course she could not do everything. This was supposed to be a nice family Christmas meal, but was totally runined. The food was not cheap by the way. Very disappointed. On the plus side - the Real Ale was well kept and the wine (when available) was good quality.

the ferry inn is a restaurant with a small bar and limited room for those who do not wish to eat. the ferry inn is not a `pub`. having said that, the beer is reasonably well kept and smokers are (thankfully) well catered for. plenty of tables with attached umbrellas provide ample cover for us lepers to continue to indulge in our disgusting habit.
