FERRY BOAT CUSTOM PLATES

Monday 7th May 2019

There are few things that will have Zander as excited as a custom designed plate, and these have long been a dream of his since we took over the pub back in 2016. We are so pleased to finally be using them and it was great fun designing them with a local company producing them in Helston. We think they look amazing with a nod to the traditional Cornish Blue china and our logo, we like to think they feel like they have always been here and we hope they will be used for years to come.

Fingers crossed we will be able to make them available to buy in the coming months too so you can have a piece of Helford Passage china in your own home…keep following for more updates soon!

Ferry Boat finds No.5 - Verdant Seafood Bar

Thursday 28th February 2019

We were so excited to visit the latest addition to Falmouth’s food scene. This Taproom inspired space is beautiful and efficiently designed with a mix of communal tables alongside some smaller tables for 2. The menu is delicious with small plates of mostly fish dishes designed to share …we obviously felt compelled to try them all and each one was quickly devoured! As expected the beer is amazing too, with Verdant brew fast becoming one of Cornwall’s standout Independent Brewers. We loved every bite and can’t wait to visit again soon.
