NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS Sadly, we have made the precautionary decision to close our pub until Christmas Eve. A Member of our kitchen staff has had to isolate who has also been in contact with other members of staff. This closing period enables us to deep clean our kitchen and ensure all of our staff are safe by going to have a PCR test. The safety of both of our staff and customers is paramount to us and we trust everyone will understand this very difficult decision. We are making our way through our bookings affected to inform them. If we have not been able to contact you for any reason I do apologise. Please feel free to email us. We will be open for Food & Drink on the 24th until 4pm. From the 27th, please see our 'Opening Hours' page. We will only be serving drinks on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. If you would like to book a table from Christmas Eve onwards, please email us at info.ferryboat@gmail.com and we will reply as soon as we are able. Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you again on Christmas Eve providing everything is well. Merry Christmas xx

With 'Freedom Day' finally here, we wanted to update our customers with how we will be operating.

- Our bar is now open! Please be respectful of others, as this is a strange time for us all. We ask politely that, once you have received your drinks, to make your way back to your table to allow room for others queuing.

- We will still be operating table service inside. If you are sat outside, please head to the main bar to place your food and drink orders.

- Face masks are no longer mandatory, however if you would feel more comfortable wearing one then please do. If you would like your server to wear one, please let us know and we will be happy to oblige.

- Test and Trace is now voluntary, however we do still encourage customers to check in. There will be a sign in sheet at the bar available, and we will continue to display our QR code.

- We will continue to have hand sanitiser stations located around the pub, and we will still sanitise menus after every use.

A big THANK YOU to our customers old and new for your support over the last 18 months. It hasn't been easy, but we are so proud of our staff for constantly adjusting to new rules and regulations, and please bear with us while we once again get used to a new system. We are ready for a great British Summer!

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.
