The Ferry Inn
A 17th Century former smugglers haunt-- this is a pretty little pub in a lovely marshland setting with tables and benches on the front terrace and in the back alongside the riverbank.
Inside it's very easygoing and chatty. The main bar has hop-draped painted beams, a green dado, and stools against the bar where they serve a beer called Oxney Ale specially brewed for the pub by Westerham Brewery.
To the right is a cosy eating area with wheelback chairs-- ideal for a banquette with friends around a few long tables.
Fantastic pub with incredible food. 10/10
A delightful restaurant with excellent food, service and ambience.
Beautiful pub with excellent food and service, staff all very friendly and welcoming.
Great selection of roasts and other dishes too. Food delicious and plentiful. Will be making it a regular stop.
We felt like every other table was served quicker than us, to the point we felt invisible. Even when we asked staff to put up an umbrella, they came out to do it and did every other table before ours. This was the same for taking orders.
Food was amazing, large portion and excellent quality. Does get chilly as only outside seating so rake a hot water bottle, they fill them for free.
As always lovely lunch served outside just missed the rain so very lucky not long now till we can enjoy another visit with family & friends. Thankyou to all the staff.
Lovely outside lunch in sunshine especially as first outing since lockdown rules eased 🌞Great food and service Staff very friendly and helpful
Fabulous location great menu good cooking and friendly service( and glorious weather!)
Had a lovely lunch in the back garden overlooking the fields, birds singing in the trees , food delicious, service v. Good all perfectly served.
Lovely place staff friendly
Kitchen service not so accommodating, after placing our order our lovely waitress took our starter and mains order in, within seconds of her going inside I changed my mind on my main dish. Knowing I was being a pain I reluctantly spoke to her as she came back out not two minutes later and blushing I asked if I could change my main. She immediately went in and asked I was told no, they had already started to cook it? ? I found that odd as the time of our waitress walking in with the ticket and me asking to change it was less than two minutes?? I was a little miffed and more miffed when we waited a further 10 minutes to receive our starter? I ended up eating a main meal that wasn’t what I thought it was when I chose it and felt rather fobbed off. Food was ok but I don’t think it warranted the bill price.
My advice is stick with the basics on their menu
Waitress was super lovely
Great food great beer great location 👌🏻
Great spot with excellent food and service
Lovey venue! Outside tables with a view in the stunning kent countryside. Highly recommend their specialty beef and chorizo burger - delicious!! Catered well for our one year old with a high chair, nice friendly atmosphere and the facilities were clean. High recommend.
Our dinner was lovely and the waitress was really welcoming and friendly she’s a credit to you
Poor communication between cold and hot kitchen caused delays in eating meal together
It was a fabulous meal. Would love a little more gluten free options but was very nice indeed. Staff were lovely and accommodating.
Food here was absolutely lovely - sunny outside seating and good beer. Perfect Saturday lunch and will be back!
Great lunchtime treat for a family celebration. The staff were efficient and smiley and we felt welcomed and valued. The food was excellent- it was busy but the plates of food were timely and of a good quality. We all said we'll have to come back to try the dishes we didn't have this time!
Great pub. Food was decent and the service from the team was good as always.
Amazing crab salad in a beautiful setting. Super friendly & helpful staff. Harvey’s beer- best pint if not the 1st one out of lockdown!
Prices appear to have gone up and portion sizes have reduced. A little disappointing.
Great lunch out
Nice food and good service. Only downside, it’s expensive.
Lovely spot, great food and service. What more do you need?
Great to be able to enjoy a meal in the sunshine. Friendly service, good quality food, decent portions - what's not to like?
Lovely country pub with beautiful garden. Outdoor dining operation is being run safely and efficiently. So great to have a pub Sunday roast again!! Super-quick service and pleasant ambience. Even had some nice sunshine! :-)
Staff made the whole experience even better, tricky trying to eat al fresco but the great food + friendly staff really helped thank u
Excellent as usual , good to be back after lockdown!
This pub came recommended by various locals - the food was tasty, portions small for the high price. We ordered the scallops as a main meal.
Celeriac purée was small dots on the plates. Could have been more generous and more filling.
Absoloutely loved it , our first eat out after lockdown , lovely choice of dishes and the fish and chips very good , service brilliant and we didnt have to wait long at all , all served with a smile.only teeny downside was the peas were of clearly poor quality certainly not Birdseye ! But fish made up for it ... could of done with a few more chips perhaps too , however we will be back and we really enjoyed it !
Excellent location that we know well. Food was of particular high quality as was the selection of beers. Unfortunately the weather was very cold and caused us to leave shortly after dinner. We look forward to the time that we can enjoy the Ferry back to normal, without any bureaucratic rules. We will support again in the meantime in the coming weeks and hope for a warmer climate.
Very nice lunch and cheerful service. Sat in the back garden by the river.
Lots of outdoor space for drinks and food! First time sitting out in the back garden which was lovely and quiet, compared to the buzzy front garden. Amazing food as always, would 100% recommend the burger!
Always had a fantastic meal here, good prices for the quality, I would have prefer it to be open
Lovely food and friendly service! Great vegetarian options and lovely atmosphere
First time we have tried an evening visit. Loved the menu options, food presentation and quality. Great personable and attentive staff. Will be returning as soon as circumstances allow.
One of our favourites for years now. Staff are always so lovely and the ambience is perfect. We always go for their signature burger, it’s delicious!
Very nice food and lovely staff
Excellant food and service will definately return.
