Met up with some friends here for our last night after visiting Dartmouth for a party. We were all happy with our meals and the service was good. I would return again when next in Dartmouth.

2x rump steaks for £20 and cooked to perfection. The blue cheese sauce is probably the best I have ever had. Beer was ok but maybe getting towards the end of the barrel, at least the pint I had was like that. Service was excellent too.

We enjoyed two evening meals here during our stay and both times excellent food, particularly the skate wing one evening. The portions are generous, the food was hot and the staff were very pleasant. Recommend booking as we found on our second visit, it gets very busy.

We selected the Floating Bridge as a place to celebrate my mums 80th birthday, with the family. Having travelled from Paignton on the steam train and ferry, it was then just a 10 minute amble to the pub. We were shown to a lovely table in the bar area, having spoken to the proprietors a few days prior. The specials... More

This pub has been around for a long time and due to fairly new management it's a good place to be, especially in the summer whereby it's sometime hard to get a table. They serve fish and chips as a signature dish all day and it's very good. The balcony is open during the summer months which overlooks the beautiful... More

Went here for an evening meal and sat in the bar area.I opted for the large cod and chips and my wife the lamb chops with chips. Both were excellent as was the service from the bar staff and waiter. Also we ordered the cheese board with the aim of sharing it, and when it arrived it was a great... More

We spent the week in Dartmouth and decided to try this pub for dinner. We ate in the bar as the restaurant was full, and our meals were excellent. The steak and kidney pie was homemade and extremely tasty. The lamb and dauphinoise potatoes was amazingly tasty and served with fresh, well cooked veg. We retuned again during our week... More

Went here for dinner and at the time they operated on first come first served basis, but I believe you can now book a table etc. Access for wheelchair ok but tables too low to get legs under. It was pretty full when we arrived so were shown to a back room which was a bit tired and felt a... More

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!
