Review on The Ferry

The Ferry nestles in the tranquil hamlet of Alveston, a small quintessential English village just 2 miles outside Stratford upon Avon. The pub is very much the hub of the community and although it still operates as the local watering hole, the food is a big draw here. The inviting interior displays all its charms with low beams and contemporary furnishings and the kitchen obliges with a modern menu to suit all tastes.

Carefully sourced seasonal British produce forms the backbone of the menu which opens with starters in the shape of crab, sweet potato and coriander samosa, spiced mayo and crispy Asian beef salad before a main course of pan fried pork chop, rosemary, thyme and garlic fondant potato, French beans, and red wine jus. Also on offer are a selection of pub classics like beer battered fish and chunky chips served with minted peas and tartar sauce or for meat lovers there's char grilled 8oz rib eye steak, peppercorn sauce, watercress and chunky chips. Make sure you leave room for one of their delicious desserts, white chocolate and apricot crème brulee or maybe strawberry and honeycomb Eton mess.

The Ferry has an excellent selection of wine, many available by the glass, supplied by local independent wine merchant Vin Neu in Stratford upon Avon. There's also a splendid range of quality case ales including favourites Hooky Bitter and Sharps Doombar, and guest ales such as Old Speckled Hen, Bombadier, Wadworth 6x and their award winning Guinness.
