Dear DSC12309 I am sorry you feel like we have dropped in standard but is the fact we do not sell cake a fair reason to be so disappointed with us. It isn't something we are currently advertising and I don't believe we are the...More

We had a lovely meal on the terrace, the food was excellent and the views are stunning. The waitress was rather moody, we arrived just before the deadline for lunch orders - so she wasn't too happy, but that's life.More

Atmospheric bar with superb views but décor tired and seats worn thread bare, Bar man is welcoming to customers and works hard unassisted. Food ok pub grub but plain and over priced. Recommend have a pint here but eat down the road.

We visited Salcombe during an unseasonably wet & windy week in June. We tripped over this pub by accident drawn by its water front location and offer of shelter under an umbrella overlooking the estuary. Don't expect fine dining.... it is most definitely basic pub...More

Hi yes we are dog friendly we have dog treats behind the bar and dog bowls dotted all a round however we do have a "paws on floors" rule where inside dogs must stay on the floor

How long ago was it that you stopped selling 'scrumpy' in the garden overlooking the river?
21 December 2014|
Response from John I |
Does that mean you are now selling it again as I understood that many years ago it was stopped at the request of the river authorities due to sailing accidents by inebriated sailors!

Good pub grub, wholesome and reasonably priced. Great and friendly service, dog friendly, live sports in bar area and terrace to enjoy the sun. Front row seat for local regatta and firework display (book early). Amazing views from all areas and restaurant area available for booking. Live music and special events throughout the year (pig racing is a must see). The team at the Ferry Inn look forward to your visit
