The Ferry Boat
The Ferry Boat is an historic, top-notch watering hole situated in the village of Washingborough. River Witham used to run alongside the pub and the old landlord purportedly ran a ferry service for those wishing to cross the river, hence the pub’s name. Built in the 17th century, it boasts original features such as oak beams and stone walls, which seamlessly blend with the comfy furnishings and soft lighting to create a comfortable environment. Tourists, locals and dog walkers alike enjoy the welcoming and relaxing atmosphere and selection of Continental draught lager, bottled gluten-free lager, and ale and world wine served. Proper pub food such as scampi and chips, lamb’s liver and bacon, and steak and ale pie are listed on the varied menu and served by a dedicated team. Finish the week with a lovely Sunday lunch or, if visiting in the week, make the most of the themed nights that take place every weeknight.
As well as the delicious traditional food and drinks available, the large suntrap beer garden, weekend specials, fortnightly quizzes, monthly live music and monthly pool tournaments are further reasons the crowds gather at The Ferry Boat.
