Sitting on the banks of the Thames in the scenic village of Cookham, The Ferry is a refurbished country-style pub serving modern British fare with a hint of Mediterranean influence. With a large outdoor dining area, a bar, and a warm, colourful restaurant with open log fires, it is a fine retreat with wholesome food and a selection of wines, ales & lagers.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Ferry restaurant menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Ferry bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Ferry in Maidenhead is a 12-minute walk from Cookham Rail Station.

    Lobster and crab Fishcakes were tasteless and Fries looked and tasted as though they had been around the kitchen for a while !
    Very disappointing as on previous occasions the Fishcakes have been very tasty.Other dishes ordered were excellent.

    We chose the Ferry to meet with friends for lunch then go for a walk along the Thames and through the village, the. Back to the pub for a drink. We had a fantastic day, thoroughly enjoyed by all. A lovely pub with a number of dining areas to choose from - the best being outside on the river bank watching the boats go by. It was very good value for money with an extensive menu - something for everyone.

    A typical M&B owned operation - the Owners are thieves targeting only maximum profit, the staff are brilliant whilst working for a pittance.
    There were not enough staff, typical of the Owners, but the staff on duty grafted all shift.

    Huge portions, amazing service

    Parking wasn't great though but I guess it being Mother's Day had an effect on that.

    We had to wait a little while to be seated but it was Mother's Day,however this was compensated as we were sat at a very nice table upstairs overlooking the river.Overall a very good service and enjoyable experience.

    Restaurant looked nice, menu restricted to Fish or chicken apart from steaks, but food was Good, on the whole. (Chips cooked too long!)
    All rather spoilt by very loud music blaring out, which meant people were shouting to make themselves heard. Good choice of wines
