We are very proud that we create great food, in a lovely environment, with service thats friendly and attentive. We souce all of our food locally where possible, using local butchers who souce from local farms, our vegetables are grown locally in Lincolnshire. "The breadbasket of Britain". Our fish is ordered on a Wednesday for purchase on a Thursday from Grimsby fish market, which is then delivered Friday. Our Fish and Chip Friday has a great following, using only the best Grimsby Haddock, thats skinned, boned and then battered in our own secret recipe beer batter. Sunday lunches are always an event at the Ferry Boat Inn, using 5 Rib of Beef, cooked on the bone together with a further selection of meat including Lamb, Turkey, Pork & Vegetarian options. (Booking advisable)

Our menu changes regularly and our kitchen team never fail to come up with consistantly changing seasonal specials.
