Take in the spectacular view at the Ferry Boat pub

Dittisham, Devon

This little pink pub on the River Dart is a friendly spot to sup on your pint and watch the world go by.

Whether you’re a visitor looking for an authentic Devon pub experience or a local stopping in for your usual pint, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome at The Ferry Boat. Perched right on the edge of the River Dart, as the name suggests, the easiest way to reach this pastel pink-painted pub is by crossing the water by ferryboat.

The window seats command stunning views across the Dart to the Greenway Estate – Agatha Christie’s former home, which she described as “the loveliest place in the world”. Motorists parking on the beach should be aware of the tides – check the timetable in the pub first!
