Eat & Drink

The Ferry Boat Inn is the perfect place to relax and unwind, catch up with family and friends either in the comfort of the original pub with its logfire, our spacious new dining area or when the weather permits our lovely beer garden, where dogs and children can enjoy the space to play.

Sourcing fresh, local produce from around Essex, our chefs prepare every dish fresh to order and plate up your meal with care. Keep a lookout for our great selection of fine wines and guest ales, sampled and selected by our dedicated ale-lovers to showcase some of the best, local breweries.

We serve freshly cooked food, 7 days a week from breakfast through to dinner. Check out our menus below…

A truly special


Let us treat you to a Christmas to remember. We'll be fully embracing the festive spirit with a host of special menus and events over the Christmas period.

Please note that we kindly ask you to pre-order to enjoy our special Christmas Menu during December. Our Main Menu will still be available throughout the festive period.

Dance the night away

New Year's Eve

As the clock counts down to midnight, we're pulling out all the stops to ensure you ring in the new year in style. Get ready for a night of glamour, music, and revelry as we transform our historic Pub into a glittering wonderland.

We'll have live music and dancing from 8pm to 1am along with a late-night buffet.

Tickets are £5 per person and must be booked in advance by calling us on 01621 738844.

Please note, our Main Menu will be served as normal until 4pm. From 8pm onwards, the Pub will become a ticketed venue with numbers limited so pre-booking is essential.
