We were at the New Year's Eve dinner and there were issues with the service that evening which I described on a review here on trip advisor and also directly to Garry at The Ferry. Although the operation did have issues that evening, we still enjoyed ourselves as the staff were friendly under pressure and the food and drink was... More

Situated on the Thames this gastro pub is really worth a visit. Gary the manager couldn't be.more helpful and his staff are really accommodating. We were made to feel really welcome and the food was better than the usual pub fayre. Definitely one of the better pubs in Cookham.

Nicely located by the Thames river the newly decorated restaurant is very spacious and plenty of windows for the view and the light.the food was good but the dessert chocolate brownies with ice cream was to die for.

Visited here after collecting our daughter from University. Lovely setting, great service and fantastic food. The place is due to close soon for refurbishment; can't see why, but the staff are very excited.

My husband and I had a lovely, romantic dinner there. We both ordered buttermilk chicken with sweet potatoe fries and followed that with sticky toffee pudding. Our food was amazing. Staff were friendly and attentive. It was my first time there but definitely not the last one!

This venue is beautiful. It is nice for a Sunday lunch or an informal meal. The service is good and for what you pay it is of an equal standard. It is not a michelin star restaurant so I wasn't expecting too much but as a gastro pub this place ticks the box in my eyes.

Went with a group of friends again having re-discovered the place and remain amazed how it has benefited from a large investment to bring it up market - beyond the decor but to include service and food. Only gripe is that service was very again very pleasant, but also very slow - not sure if understaffed that night or a... More

We have been to the Ferry quite a few times over the years, and we've always had a good experience here. Quiet location and lovely view, we came here at the weekend and despite being seated a bit late, as it was really busy, we had a really fantastic time, the service was excellent and our food came out quick...

High quality roast dinners - very tasty. Good selection of tempting desserts. Friendly service. Beautiful setting on the river. Only downside was the search for a car parking space! We'll be back!
