Old Ferry Boat

Back Lane Holywell, St Ives, Cambridgeshire PE27 4TG - United Kingdom
Booking Line: +44 (0)1775 843417

The Old Ferry Boat Holywell near St Ives Cambridgeshire sits in this pretty hamlet by the Great Ouse. The Old Ferry Boat is reputedly England`s oldest inn, built before the last millennium. The beautifully thatched roof and white stonework stand as a monument to travellers who once rested here centuries ago, after quenching their thirst and satisfying their hunger with the finest English fare. It was constructed in Anglo-Saxon times, and historical documents record that liquor was first retailed here as early as 560 A.D, although experts estimate that the foundations are a century older. Today the inn is a delightful place to stay offering a very warm welcome and great hospitality to all its guests. Large Car Park.

The Old Ferry Boat has an attractive function room suitable for small family gatherings, weddings or meetings.

The cosy bar with leather chairs and open fires is a perfect meeting place for locals and travellers. Enjoy some delicious snacks, light meals and real cask ales. In the summer months dine outside on the pretty patio and garden, overlooking the river.
