About The Ferry Boat Inn Essex
With its roots way back in the 16th century, The Ferry Boat Inn on the River Crouch is a beautiful and historic weatherboard pub.
Located in the picturesque village of North Fambridge, this traditional pub serves homecooked food in front of log fires and oak beams, along with a wide selection of beers, ales, wines and soft drinks.
Six accommodation rooms can be found in the courtyard annexe, with a large beer garden with views across the Essex countryside.
There is ample free parking outside with easy access by road, rail (North Fambridge train station >1mile), sea (visitor berthing available at Fambridge Yacht Haven) and by foot. Dogs welcome.
Excellent we will be returning
Lovely Sunday roast and excellent service. Large garden and tables well set out with plenty of space. Very smart refurb of the old pub but retaining plenty of its character. Will definitely go back again
We came for dinner and food was lovely . The service wasnt amazing only because I felt we had been forgotten. Took a long time to order but food came quickly . The service was friendly just slow but it was a busy sunday . Also it didnt feel child friendly as there was no highchair or childrens menu . But overall was nice .
Excellent food and drink. Great location. Fabulous staff Will definitely be back!
We had a lovely meal with you recently and had great service, thank you! We’re looking forward to visiting again soon.
It will be nice to see the more comprehensive menu - and specials - post covid restrictions. Obviously a lot of effort and thought has gone into the 'new Ferry Boat Inn' and this shows as the place is stunning throughout. The staff were also great, helpful and a credit to the restaurant. All in all the four of us had a very pleasurable experience thank you.
Fantastic service. Staff are all very friendly and the food is excellent! Also good valve for money! We will definitely be back
All the staff were very friendly and polite. This was our second time visiting and will definitely be returning in the warmer months ahead for some amazing food and drinks!
Great food, great service and loads of choice, can’t wait till I can eat inside. Thank you all
