Welcome to The Farndon Ferry

If you want to relax and unwind the Farndon Ferry Bar and Bistro is the perfect venue. Located in the charming village of Farndon, right next to the River and just a short stroll from the Farndon Marina we serve up views of the River Trent along with freshly ground coffee and cake everyday from 10am.

Offering a variety of inside and outside space including a riverside terrace, relaxed bar area and picturesque restaurant this makes the perfect venue for a casual drink or a 3 course meal. It is also a great party venue where we can host celebrations for corporate events, meetings, wedding receptions, anniversary and birthday parties.

Our menu is freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients where possible. You can choose to eat from our menu in the bar, restaurant or outside on our terrace. Food is served everyday from 12pm until 8:30pm.

We serve up amazing Sunday roasts where we offer the best of British beef, pork loin and chicken served with seasonal vegetables which change often and all served with home made yorkshire puddings.

We welcome dogs on the terrace area where they can enjoy a bowl of fresh water straight from our Whisky Barrel and a treat.

We have a fresh kids menu and welcome children of all ages. Highchairs are available for the younger ones and there is also easy access for prams, pushchairs and disabled access.

We offer an extensive choice of cask ales, continental lagers and guest beers and a range of classic cocktails. Our quality wine selection is also designed to ensure there is something to suit everyone.

Four-legged friends are always welcome at our dog-friendly restaurant!


We are lucky enough have our own free private moorings for our diners that like to be on the water. Just moor up, and pop in for some amazing food and drinks. Unfortunately, we are unable to reserve the moorings, call ahead and we’ll let you know if they are free at that moment in time.
