Description: 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!

Didn't eat here, however as it was a lovely Saturday afternoon stopped for drinks. Two pints, a glass of wine and a G and T came to Β£20. Even the Royal Castle is cheaper!!!!!!!!!!!

A pub which had so much character and tradition has been utterly spoiled. The food served to our party of eight was indifferent and the coffee was awful. No character; no ambience; nil points. Put up the old ships' crests, the memorabilia, and some model ships and let me know when you have done this and I'll give you a... More

In September 2013 we had dinner at this pub 4 times in a week because it was close to our hotel and the food was decent enough and reasonably priced. Probably a 4* experience at that time. Well, exactly one year later we were in Dartmouth again and thought we would take a trip down memory lane. What a mistake... More

We come here a few times during our stay in Dartmouth for both drinks and food, there is a superb outside area by floating bridge. The staff were friendly and food was delicious, and good value. Would highly recommend.

We stayed at a local hotel and decided for convenience to eat and drink one night at the Floating Bridge Inn, we were very disappointed with our experience. On arrival we noticed that all the staff were teenage/early 20's, we waited an age at the bar for drinks and when they were served there was no care at all. For... More

We had pre-booked to eat at the pub/restaurant last weekend as the menu looked delicious. The experience was unfortunately far from that. All credit to the waiting staff as they did well against the odds and remained polite when people were getting irate but the food content - and the lengthy wait - were poor. My own main course dish... More

This pub is right on the higher ferry at Dartmouth. Changed hands some time ago and its still superb with seating on the rooftop or outside or across the road overlooking the river and all the yacht and boats up and down the river. What a way to spend time, super views,super food and family. Try the sharing tapas...just great.

Love the floating bridge. Relaxing with a glass of wine and some delicious food while the children happily sit crab fishing in the river dart. Always happy friendly staff that go that extra mile. Thankyou for your excellent service we recived during the Dartmouth regatta 2014. See you soon Nathan Sara Arun Nicole Wilson πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸŽ£
