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!

Good Food and Service

Spent a week in Dartmouth and ended up eating here 3 times. This is a dog friendly pub (great for us!) and one that offers a great selection of fresh fish. Each visit the service and food quality were consistent. The barman even remembered my husbands wine choice from a previous visit. The pub... read more

We had a lovely stay in Dartmouth, our first visit, and enjoyed a couple of really good meals at the Floating Bridge, overlooking the river and the ferry. Excellent food, great service!.

Since undergoing a change of management the Floating Bridge has noticeably improved, with an expanded menu and better service. That said, much of the outside seating has been replaced with uncomfortable picnic-style tables and every time that we walked past recently they appeared to be in need of a good clean. Tables were also slow to be cleared and this... More

Great place for a hearty pub meal after a long (but very interesting) tour round the Naval College. The fish and chips are good value, but the drinks are expensive. Still it's got a lovely view over the Dart and outdoor seating to enjoy the sun!

Four of us decided to try the fish and chips at the Floating Bridge Dartmouth.After eventually attracting the attention of a reluctant and cheerless barman we ordered drinks and subsequently ordered food at a separate counter.The fish and chips served by an equally surly member of staff were excellent,what a shame the service let us down.

Having just arrived in the town, asked the tourist information for somewhere to eat overlooking the water. The Floating Bridge was recommended to us otherwise we would never have found it. Majority of us had medium fish and chips for £8 very good value and plenty. others had the baguette. All good value for money. Although seating our the front... More

Found this place via trip advisor and not sure about the other peoples choice of food but obviously not the same as ours. My husband chose the ploughmans ham and cheese. I think the chef was in a rush. The iceburg lettuce was in a huge chunk & accompanied by a 1/4 cumumber uncut. Also not sure about the relevance... More
