Lovely views of River Dart, really friendly staff, very welcoming, great food and plenty of it too. Prices compared favourably with others in the area. We parked at Dittisham Common and walked across the beach to FBI. Very friendly gaffer who was very amusing. Made us and our dog welcome. Looking forward to the next time we are in the area and can visit again

Nice location but it's a bit of a walk from the nearest parking unless you want to chance parking on the small bit of tidal beach.

There were a couple of tables outside, one of which is very wobbly and needs attention as every time someone stood up, the other side of the table reared up. Unnerving and caused spillage of drinks.

Food and drink prices are distinctly on the hefty side with a simple baguette plus a bit of garnish costing around £7 and a small bottle of beer £3.75. The food we had was ok but nothing special so we probably won't bother to visit agan.

Nice place, nice position, good food but nearly twice the price of the other end of the quay. Position position etc.

We walked to Dittisham from Dartmouth (about 5 miles ish) and had lunch at the Ferry Boat inn. Lovely home cooked food and a nice pint. This was a circular walk but after such a good lunch we decided to get the ferry back to Dartmouth. Very friendly and welcoming staff we will definitely go again when we next visit Dartmouth.

Had the pleasure and delight of stumbling upon this delightful setting on Sunday. A pub with real character and paella, burgers, sausage, salads , good drinks, sunshine, live music all on the beach. So well worth a visit - a real treasure and highly recommend that it is put on the list of things to do . Thank you for a magical day.
