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!

We visited this pub on what can only be described as a foul New Year's Eve lunchtime. The weather was absolutely appalling and hence I give only 4 blobs not 5. Not for the weather specifically...that would be insane, no it is for the lack of parking outside of the pub, meaning we had to park some distance away and... More

Staff and service wasn't the worst ever encountered, but starter came out with a 'Costa Coffee Napkin'. Not something you'd expect to see at a supposedly well established Pub. Portion sizes were hideously large, stale bread, main didn't arrive with what was originally ordered. Would not dine here again :)

...Every time we visit Devon/Cornwall we go to the Floating Bridge. The people who run the place are great and very helpful. Four of us had lunch of fish,chips and "mushy" peas( very reasonably priced!!!) and a couple of pints of real ale, who could ask for anything better, fantastic. See you all soon...

I have been in many times before as the service and value for money is very good, the fish and chips are very good washed down with a bottle of wine. The staff are all very polite and Rhys looked after us very well so thanks for an enjoyable dinner yet again.

There was 11 of us booked in for Lunch before departing Dartmouth following the BRNC pass off. We had a drink in the main bar area then was called in when our table was ready. The restaurant seating area was nice and we had plenty of table space. We all ordered different lunch options and it didn't take long for... More

Ate here twice while in Dartmouth for Christmas 2015. Excellent food and very friendly, attentive staff. Always eat here when we are in Dartmouth and would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had the nachos to share....not the best ever, but ok. Fish and chips superb, as was the small crab salad, and a very nice bottle of Rioja. Friendly and efficient service.
