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!

Great family restaurant

I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for tasty and reasonably price pub environment food. Both adults and children were very happy with the food quality and the menu has a wide selection from fajitas to roasts to steaks. Recommended.

Great views of Dartmouth and lovely pub inside. Bar service was very slow however. They did have signs advertising for staff needed so they are aware to be fair, but still it wasn't that busy to justify the wait

Popped in for some lunch today and just wanted some sarnies. Baguettes were on the menu but were shocked to see they were £8 each ...main courses with chips and veg weren't much more, so we were expecting great things ....but how wrong were we ...ordered cheese, red onion and chutney and the cheese looked like it had been hacked...

Me and the family came to Dartmouth for a week away. We were pointed in the direction of 'The Floating Bridge' by some locals, so we booked a table. It was a busy night in the pub and you could see it was popular. We were greeted by very friendly staff and shown to our table.The menu was full of... More

We have been coming here for the last few years and have always found it excellent regardless of the time of year - today was no exception. Friendly and efficient staff, really good food, freshly prepared and reasonably priced. Best mixed grill for miles!

We've never had anything other than delicious food in very generous portions. It's always fantastic value and the staff are incredibly hospitable and friendly. We love this place and its great views so much: it's an absolute must-do on each of our frequent visits to Dartmouth. The only question is how many times per week we come!!

Tough steaks, one completely inedible and returned. Onions on skewers almost raw. Rude manageress refused to accept our dissatisfaction. Argued. Wanted to offer vouchers but we explained we were not local. Unpleasant tussle and embarrassing. Eventually she reduced our bill by £5. Service slow. Avoid at all costs.

Fish restaurant right by the ferry in Dartmouth. The 'small' fish and chips was huge, lovely batter and I was unable to finish the meal. With a soft drink my bill was less than £8.
