From Wednesday 2nd December, our doors will be open again. We will have to adhere to government guidelines (currently Tier 2), which are briefly outlined below. Our Christmas plans are provisional and still depend on upcoming announcements. We are quietly confident that from December 16th, we will be back to Tier 1, so please keep checking our website and social media pages in the meantime.

We will continue to adhere to current government guidelines, which include:

- To purchase an alcoholic drink, you will need to be eating a 'substantial meal'

- Booking is advised now more than ever to guarantee an inside table. To do so, please call us on 01394 284203 or email at info.ferryboat@gmail.com

- Tables must consist of ONE household only

- No parties of over 6 people, even if spread across tables

- Masks are mandatory when not sat a table

- There will be a one-way system in place which all customers will need to follow

- Customers will need to give details for Test & Trace or 'check-in' using the NHS Covid-19 app

- We can serve drinks up until 10pm, so last orders are 9.45pm and we will close at 10.30pm

- We've worked really hard to ensure we are Covid-19 Secure and can confirm we have complied with all government guidance on managing the risks

- If you are at all unsure on anything, please ask a staff member, who will be happy to help

Set in the Hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry, a bracing blast along the coast or a more peaceful meander through the Links golf course brings you to this quiet village. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty at the mouth of the river Deben, the Ferryboat was originally built in the 15th Century as home to the Ferry master, later becoming a hostelry for travellers and fisherman alike in the 16th Century.
