Good pub meal, however should probably have gone for specials. Superb location on the side of the river Teifi and they have thought about their outside seating. Good service.

Beautiful views and location. My only disappointment was that the kids meals did not come with beans or vegetables - Just chips and fish/macaroni bites. The adult menu was much better and service was excellent.

Excellent food, particularly fish, great for gluten free with wide choice and clearly labelled. Also good for children. Lovely estuary views. We sat outside, there is cover and a heater which was perfect.

Great location overlooking the water, very friendly service. Good selection of drinks. Fish a bit overcooked and dry, sauce tasty. Balsamic vinegar glaze is too sweet for salads and dipping bread, just balsamic vinegar would be much better.

We were impressed with how polite and considerate the young staff were. They made a point of standing back to allow us free access. They were responsive and helpful to questions. It was very busy but the food came in sensible time. Also the noise level was low enough to provide atmosphere without impinging on conversation.

Bearing in mind Covid restrictions and the intense heat each occasion we visited was excellent, the staff were first rate, pleasant and really helpful. Whenever we visit St Dogmaels we will visit the Ferry Inn. One of the best locations of any restaurant in the whole of the UK.

Good selection of food and drinks on the menu. Very friendly and service was really good. We sat outside (with our well behaved spaniel) overlooking the estuary with the hills in the background, it was very tranquil and beautiful. The views and surrounding made the meal even more enjoyable.

We had a lovely table inside in the window overlooking the river. Staff were friendly and efficient but not too intrusive and we never felt rushed. We had roast dinners and a children's macaroni cheese bites. All of it was excellent. Whenever I see the term 'gastropub' my first thought is tiny portions and high prices. For a Sunday lunch it was probably is on the higher price side but we didn't feel short changed given there was plenty of meat and vegetables, all well cooked and served in a lovely location. The red cabbage was particularly delicious - even our fussiest eater was impressed. If one thing let it down, when I asked for mint sauce I was given a packet. I understand with covid restrictions but I thought fresh mint sauce could have been served in the little ramekin the packet came in. Overall a great experience.
