The Ferryboat Inn

SAILING boats bob to the sound of Moby, kayakers swerve past kingfishers, herons and oystercatchers, and spherical hanging baskets almost imperceptibly swing. This is how life looks in the early evening from the broad, canopied terrace of Falmouth’s 300 year-old Ferryboat Inn. It’s the local outpost of the Wright Brothers who, rather than being pioneers of human flight, also operate wildly successful seafood brasseries in Borough Market and Soho. They also grow and supply oysters (over five million per year) and mussels to a great many more.
