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 spent last weekend in Dartmouth and visited The Floating Bridge Inn for supper on the Sunday night. My fellow diners each had the fish and chips which they enjoyed immensely. The servings were very generous. I am not a lover of fish and chips and opted for the mussels. What a great choice it was. These little morsels were... More

We ate here on a Sunday in July. We were made welcome, prices were average for Dartmouth (expensive) and portions large but mediocre. Chili was short on meat and over grilled (served with tortilla chips) steak was ok. Would not return. Menu was varied and put kids would have been happy with the choice.

We refrained from eating for hours in order to enjoy The Floating Bridge after reading so many good things on TA and our B&B host recommended it as a good place to eat. We located it early in the morning then returned after several hours walking, more than ready to eat. We ordered drinks, took a very generic menu that... More

This our second visit to Dartmouth in 2 years and this still remains our favourite dining experience in Dartmouth. The food is superb and varied. There are choices for everyone's tastes. Good real ales and ciders, great wines and plenty of choices as to where you would like eat your meal or just have a drink, the views are fabulous... More

My partner and I visited the Floating Bridge recently. It was a lovely day and there was lots of seating outside. The view was lovely, that said the service was not a good standard. When i went to order the drinks the man on the bar was very rude - he couldn't care less whether he was there or not!... More

excellent quality food and not too expensive. Decent sized portions, well cooked and fish fresh - I had prawns to start and they were delicious. Nice atmosphere inside, lovely area outside to sit and look over the River Dart.
