A typical Summer Saturday Lunchtime
The Ferry Boat Inn - Laneham

The Ferry Boat Inn at Laneham welcomes you to our website, and hopefully a very warm welcome to our traditional county inn. Nestled in the heart of the riverside hamlet of Church Laneham, The Ferry Boat dates back to the 1800's when it was welcoming customers using the crossing over the River Trent opposite the pub. The Ferry Boat Inn today has a 24 cover restarant, a private dining room for up to 16 or 20 people, an alfresco dining area as well as our bar serving only the best local real ales and an inviting roaring open fire for those cold winters evenings. We very much look forward to meeting you either it be just for a drink, our famous Sunday lunches or a light bite during the day at weekends or dinner Tuesday to Saturday.

Customer reviews

"Dropped into here for Sunday lunch after visiting the local Japanese gardens. Welcoming, friendly staff. Had a lovely two course Sunday roast - couldn't manage a dessert as the main meal was too filling!! Would definitely recommend the pub to anyone looking for a good, home cooked meal which was great value for money."
"I was given the task of finding somewhere to go for our evening meal. I looked on trip-advisor and the Ferry boat. We walked into the lovely room with a roaring fire, so nice to see. We were given the choice to sit in the restaurant or stay in the bar area. We decided to stay in the bar, near the lovely fire."
"Absolutely incredible Saturday evening meal after a long walk at Clumber Park. Could not have asked for better service, we were warmly greeted and welcomed into the bar area by the staff and the warm open fire, what a treat!! The meals were without a doubt the best meal I have had in England since I've been here (1 year in Lincolnshire) and at a very reasonable price."
"Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here in a relaxed atmosphere, the food was delicious and was accompanied by fine ales. We enjoyed the warm welcome and will be returning to sample more of their menu."
"Thank you yet again for today's special Birthday Sunday roast with a fantastic Apple crubble and custard .Can't beat the great menus that the chef makes and the special greetings we always get from all the staff."
"Called in at the Ferryboat Inn last Saturday after our Daughter in Law had seen the sign on the drive to us from Sheffield. We had an amazing meal there, although we all ordered different dishes everything came out piping hot, the atmosphere and staff were very friendly as were the other customers that were in at the time. We had 2 grandchildren with us and the staff could not do enough to make sure their meals were right for them. We will be calling in again real soon and look forward to the summers sat outside enjoying the views and hopefully the sunshine."
