If your passing Stokesby then the tea rooms (situated behind the pub) are a must visit. From the outside it looks like a gift shop but hidden at the back is a gem of the Broads - a tea room that serves both fantastic food at realistic prices but an equally amiable atmosphere. The home made cheesecake is a must try and the all day breakfast is excellent.

The Ferry Inn pub - good beer, food is naff and dont run a bill as mine was far higher than it should have been and because the dippy staff had messed up all the sub totals for drinks etc we couldnt work out what it should have been ! Also be warned they will happily take your order & money in the main bar and then tell you that as you have kids your banished to the cold family room out back ! If you want food then go to the tea rooms and get a drink from the off licence !

ps. thankyou to all those that replied to my question re fishing.

Hi Mate,
first welcome to the site,
Blimey some thing must have gone belly up,i called in sometime in feb for a stopover, it was ok.
Hope its not going to follow the pattern of ,one or two of the other riverside pubs of late,as was discussed on another thread it seems to be the Pubs on the River that are going downhill.I now use a Village pub,shed loads better.

Hiya

I agree with you about the tea rooms at the back of the gift shop, we've always eaten there, the staff are so nice, and the food is lovely and very reasonably priced.

We've never been that impressed with The Ferry, and I'm not sure if it is just a woman thing, but each time we've been there, the loos have been disgusting.

We were on our way from South Walsham to St Olaves on Friday last week and stopped at Stokesby Ferry Inn - didn't know they had a karioke night - had a reasonable meal in the back room - on our own but didn't mind that! Can recommend the breakfasts at the shop behind the pub.

The six of us had a full cooked english in the tea rooms on the Saturday 23rd morning of the NBF meet after a heavy night in the inn.  B/fast was very good, good quality, hot and plenty of it. Can't remember the price, but then again with our tender heads, we weren't that bothered. I would reccommend the place though.  -  Griff

One of these decades we WILL finish Broad Ambition !!

hi all ,
barry & silvia do a cracking job at the tea rooms ,nothing is to much trouble , we had take away meals from there back at easter as we found that the ferry inn pub at stokesby had down sized there menu and had hardly anything on the day specials board , as dave & griff has said good quality food is always presented . cant wait to get back there at the end of the month ,

Hi all well Stokesby is a nice pub to eat if they got what's on the menu but the only reservation I have is the River is very tidal as i found out in October 06 when we got Flooded on the Broads. As for the Ferry Inn at Horning  i wont go there again not only for the Food is not good enough as to the over Night Mooring fee that is £5 in 06 and did not even get a slight reduction for using the Ferry Inn Pub.
