Graham Coombs left this review about Ferryboat Inn

I was slightly disappointed by the general feel here, with what should have been a traditional landmark Cornish creek pub seeming more like a seafront resort pub. The interior has clearly suffered from a disastrous rebuild in the past, with Spanish-style arches and a paved floor, while mismatched modern woodwork doesn't help. Perhaps it develops more atmosphere in the evening. There is a pool table in a gloomy area to the back. Outside is better, with many tables looking out over the muddy beach and moorings. The sampled St Austell beers were in good order though, with Tribute, HSD and Proper Job available. The menu is unsurprisingly heavy on seafood but was not tried.

Be warned that access is a bit of a struggle, with only a paid-for car park at the top of the (rather steep) hill, although it is possible to drop off at the pub or the lower (private) car park. The location is great and it clearly doesn't struggle for trade but it could be rather better.

On the waterfront at Helford Passage, next to the ferry for Helford. Fantastic setting. Good food, if a little pricy. Live music at week-ends. Only pub for miles with a stronger brew - the HSD was the best drink all week. Other real ales along with the usual stuff for those who believe the commercials. Visited with 5 mates, absolutely no complaints. Accommodation available, large car-park at rear of the pub. We'd visit again and again the place was that good.
