Family run pub serving simple, seasonal food in one of Cornwall's most iconic locations. The Ferryboat Inn dates back 300 years and is situated in the North Helford Passage on the waterfront. Surrounded by wooded banks and sloping fields, this is one of Cornwall's most breathtaking locations. 

The inspiration for Daphne Du Maurier's novel can be found at Frenchman's Creek nearby. the pub's terrace overlooks some of the best views in the South-West, and offers plenty of beach-side seating for long sunny days and warm evenings. In the winter months, you can make yourself at home near our open fire or relax with a drink at the bar. 

Eating and drinking is central to The Ferryboat Inn where we serve home-made pub classic alongside other delicious food. We have a 'farm to table' philosophy so that nothing comes between you and the produce we serve.
