Walked in for breakfast as it was the first place we found. Really surprised at the value! All local ingredients and a decent size for £5. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere, definitely recommend.

I visited the Floating Bridge last Saturday and after my meal I asked if it was possible to reserve the table by the window, overlooking the river, for the following Wednesday lunch as I had guests from Jersey staying with me. I was told that they usually don’t reserve tables at the front of the pub but as it was... More

Management response:

Hi Susan, I am sorry to hear that you were misled by a member of my team during your visit to the Floating Bridge recently and left us disappointed. Due to the high demand in our public bar area all year around, it has always been our policy not to book a table in this area and only in the... More

We visited on a weeknight to a cosy pub with a pleasant atmosphere. There was a good choice of food on offer from the main menu and also the specials board, all reasonably priced. The calamari starter as with the lasagne main were first class. The food was served piping hot by a cheerful member of staff. The drinks were... More

Situated right by the water, the Floating Bridge Inn has a fantastic variety of dishes to choose from. I had spicy chorizo to start which was absolutely delicious, and was just the... More

We were very impressed with the service, someone came to our table as soon as we sat down to take our drinks order and they arrived within minutes. The food also came quickly and it was very good.

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!
