Visiting Dartmouth we found this pub for a drink at lunch time. We returned for supper last night and it was awesome. Lovely atmosphere, great food and very clean! Prices about average- well worth a visit.

We called in for lunch whilst on holiday near Dartmouth. It was quite quiet when we went( Monday lunchtime). They have a really good menu and the fresh fish was very good. Friendly landlord.

I visited last Sunday with a real craving for a roast on a wet and windy day. I was not disappointed! The roast was well cooked and came with a great Cauli Cheese and Veg. I will certainly be back on another Sunday for more.

But the food was not great. Had a small fish and chips which looked good value but the chips had been refried and the fish was chewy. My friend had a prawn cocktail which was tasteless. Had eaten here before but would not go back....More

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!
