Set alongside the beautiful river dart in the estuary at Dartmouth, The Floating Bridge is the latest addition to the Quality Inns portfolio. When on your Devon holiday, be sure to visit this quaint old fashioned pub. Enjoy the warm atmosphere in the bar or restaurant, or why not sit by the river and watch the boats in the Marina or the Higher Ferry transporting the cars to Kingswear. Relax with a glass of wine or Pimm's, why not try the fresh crab salad!

This restaurant was recommended to us and we we returned twice more during our short stay in Dartmouth.

In our first visit we chose plaice and Torbay sole. A beautifully cooked, large portion was served. Great price as well. We returned twice more, eating once on the rooftop terrace and once inside. The food in each occasion was cooked really well. Very tasty. The only comment was that the desserts... read more

We went with a large group of friends during the extremely busy Royal Dartmouth Regatta but still got a good table in a most convivial atmosphere. All the food was delicious and served quickly and well despite the pressures of large numbers. Great value and we will be back.

The Floating Bridge is well worth the 5/6 minute walk from the main drag in Dartmouth. As the name suggests it is set right in front of the floating bridge that takes cars across the Dart. We have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed the food. On our most recent visit the pub was very busy. They have... More

Visited here during the busy week of Dartmouth regatta. It was perfect to get away from the bustle of the town. Food was good quality and food prices and loved the sun terrace with views over the river. Staff did very well at a particularly busy time. Liked it so much we returned several times during the week.

Went to The Floating Bridge on a few occasions during our holiday and compared to other places around Dartmouth, price and quality-wise it was one of our favourite pubs/restaurants we visited. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was to a good standard and generous in size. A few times we went just for drinks and the service remained the same.... More

We had the fish and chips and an ale. Great Atmosphere, great food. Wonderful view! The fish and chips was almost better than a chip shop1

Eat here twice while recently staying in Dartmouth and both times had a good meal. I had a steak and kidney pie on both occasions, and partner had fish and chips and fish pie (which she said was lovely). Quite well priced. We had no issue finding a table but it was busy and on one evening we did have... More

This pub serves a varied menu of good pub food, the service was efficient and the staff were pleasant and helpful. During the summer they do not take bookings so you have to grab a table when they are free and then go to the bar to order your food. My only complaint with this pub is that they do... More
