The Ferryman Inn, Oxfordshire is located on the banks of the River Thames about 10 miles from Oxford on the Thames Path making this a beautiful location to relax, drink, eat and sleep.

Steeped in history, The Ferryman Inn is one of the oldest ferry crossing points and made famous by the Matthew Arnold poem “The Scholar Gypsy”

“…….For most, I know, thou lov’st retired ground!
Thee at the ferry Oxford riders blithe,
Returning home on summer-nights, have met
Crossing the stripling Thames at Bab-lock-hithe……..”

Matthew Arnold ( 1822-1888)
