Ferry House is situated on the south side of Canute Road just to the west of what used to be the road at Dock Gate 7 and is now Ocean Way. It was built in the late 19th century and used to house the various dock management bodies. It was sometimes referred to as Dock House or Car Ferry House. Built of yellow brick on a T-shaped plan, it comprises two sections each two-stroreys high. In 2000 it was converted to a public house called the Cork and Bottle; it was renamed The Admiral Sir Lucius Curtis in 2009. It is Grade II listed.
