A "Harvester" restaurant, one of many in a chain. Right by the road bridge, a couple of minutes walk from the High Street in Cookham, this pretty pub/restaurant has an enviable position. Popular restaurant upstairs and bar area downstairs, with lots of outside seating so you can relax and watch people messing about on the river. Menu is unadventurous but this remains a popular place. Example prices: Starters from around 2, rump steak 9.70, sweets from around 2, Worthington's Best Bitter 2.50/pint. Children-friendly with high-chairs etc.

I am a regular visitor of The Ferry (Harvester)Cookham, I have never had cause for complaint. The service and food are always excellent and I would highly recommend it...

Ian Newitt comments on 16 May 2004:

Had a meal at The Ferry on Saturday 15th May 2004 and my husband's meal came stone cold, even the plate had not been warmed. They seemed very short of waiting staff, one did not even understand English. The gent's toilet was dirty and floor uneven, quarry tiles missing over manhole. Reading the comment from 2001 [now deleted because of its age] the sauce jugs were still gungy round the edges - one hopes not the same gunge from 2001. 3 years on and nothing seems to have changed.

This place obviously blows hot and cold - Robert writes on 5 July 2004:

i absolutely loved the harvester i had a superb meal there and had a very friendly waitress attend to my every needs, the drinks came to me quicky and the steak i had was just gorgeous, i heavily recommend this place!

This waterbourne customer likes it too - Karen Callow writes on 23 August 2004:

We were temporarily moored up at Cookham on Saturday and after inviting friends to join us, decided to eat at the Ferry Harvester as we both have children. The staff were polite and helpful. The food was very good and there was a better variety for the children too(mini ribs, wraps, pasta)(the childrens set meal also includes free salad bar), which was a bonus as both of my children do not like chicken nuggets!The cost was very reasonable considering there was 7 of us and all had starters, main(which inc salad bar)and desserts and the bill came to a little over 100 (and that included a few beers and a bottle of wine). So yes we would definitely visit again.

Carina Boddy is not impressed, writing on 6 September 2004:

I have been there 3 times in 2 years and have vowed not to go back every time. The waitng time was awful, the food was a completely different from the neighbouring harvesters, the food that was served was cold and shrivelled. The salad cart was half full with comments from the staff like - we've run out of stock (on all 3 occassion???) was said like it was the norm. Both sides of my family have the same view and do not go unless its for drinks only by the Thames. Great shame really as its an ideal location. Shame about the rest of the package!!
