About The Ferry House Inn

Harty Ferry Road, Harty, Isle of Sheppey
Kent, ME12 4BQ

The Ferry House Inn is a charming 16th Century pub with 4* accommodation, tucked away in an idyllic ‘secret’ spot alongside the Thames Estuary.  Sitting amongst rolling farmland, renowned bird & nature reserves and specially designed wedding gardens, the panoramic views across the water and countryside provide unrivalled backdrops for your day.

We offer bespoke weddings, tailored to each couple, so you can have your perfect day exactly the way you want it. Our dedicated Events Team will take a personal approach to your day and will be on hand to ensure the big day runs smoothly.

The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in both the Oak Barn or outside in Oak Gazebo for up to 150 guests. To follow the ceremony, you have the choice of hosting your reception in either the Oak Barn, seating up to 90, or our brand new Event Suite seating up to 200.

For the main event (or as we see it, the food!) we offer extensive and varied menus to suit all different styles of weddings. As members of Produced in Kent, we are incredibly proud of the quality of our ingredients; the Lamb and Beef are from our very own family farms, the Game is from our own shoot and in 2012, we began our very own Kitchen Garden on-site. The Ferry House Inn was awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and in the summer of 2015 we were awarded our first AA Rosette based on the food and service as well as our on-site accommodation.

Our Evening Reception options include Barn only receptions for up to 100 guests, Barn and Dancefloor options which include an additional private wedding bar for up to 150 guests or our entire Event Suite is available to use all day to host the wedding breakfast with a dancing area screened off during your meal which is then revealed in the evening. This option also includes the private wedding bar from after the ceremony, and is suitable for up to 300 guests.

To end the day in style and comfort, we have five 4* B&B rooms on site for you and your guests; including our Bridal Suite with a super king sized sleigh bed, spa bath, lounge area and views across the wedding Patios, Gardens and Estuary. Wake up to an award winning local breakfast and reminisce on the day before. Just off-site, we also own Mocketts Farm Cottages, a complex of four 4* self-catered cottages available to book for 30 plus guests. The perfect ‘next-stop’ for family and friends to stay or to make a weekend of things!

Every wedding here is individual and unique. Our couples are welcome to decorate the venue as they please, and Exclusive Hire of the entire venue is available for weddings who would prefer a more private affair. We offer lots of varying add-on’s including a family-owned vintage tractor ride to arrive in true country style, dancefloor upgrades and even our own fire-pit with toasted marsh-mellows for the evening!

• Bespoke celebrations tailored to your personal taste and budget • Countryside location at the water’s edge, with views across the Estuary • Licensed to hold civil ceremonies in the oak Barn or oak Gazebo • Receptions in the oak Barn or Event Suite overlooking to gardens and Estuary • Four-star accommodation for 50 overnight guests (62 from 2019) • Delicious menus featuring beef and lamb from the family farm and local game and Kentish Pork

The Ferry House Inn seemed like such an easy choice as our wedding venue. The location, the venue, the food, the relaxed/informal atmosphere all played a part in making the most memorable day of our lives. We also can't thank the staff enough - they really do become a part of your day, they listen, they respond and most of all they understand. Our memories and those of friends and family will last for a a lifetime - Thank You!

We wanted to say a big thank you to the team at the Ferry House Inn for helping to make our wedding what we had dreamed of, the atmosphere of the venue and professionalism and friendliness of all the team was exceptional. I had a lot of help with the planning and time line side of the wedding, which was invaluable, and nothing seemed too much to ask. Important things to us were valued, like being able to decorate the venue ourselves, and the team were extremely flexible to our needs. The barn looked like a fairytale on the day and the whole day felt like a dream. Thank you

We had our wedding reception here in Feb 2016, following our ceremony at the beautiful church around the corner. Fantastic reception venue. Beautiful barn which serves as gorgeous rustic dining/reception area, which in its basic form is perfectly lovely, but once styled in the wedding decor it was just breathtaking! We also hired the 9x9 marquee with the LED dance floor, and giant LOVE letters for the evening part, it looked fantastic and created a great space for people to dance. This meant we got a private wedding bar in the barn, this kept all the guests in one part of the venue, creating a busy party atmosphere. The wedding coordinator Kelci was fantastic, from booking over a year in advance, right up to the day she was so helpful and knowledgable, she gave us lots of good advice which we followed, and the result was a wedding day so far beyond all of our expectations. The staff on the day of the wedding were fab, the service was impeccable And ran like a well oiled ship. The food was perfection, with many guests commenting that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. We had a late licence and all partied our socks off until 1am. The rooms above the venue were lovely, and we rented all the mocketts farm cottages too for the weekend, which were fab. We can't recommend The Ferryhouse Inn highly enough. So thank you to all at the FHI for helping us to have the very best day of our lives Ashley & Dan 27th Feb 2016 xxxxx

We have wanted to be married for 5 years, but with 2 children we had neither the money or time to plan our wedding. We came across The Ferry House Inn by recommendation and after we visited, we knew we had found our venue. The price list is very clear and detailed; meaning we could tailor our wedding to suit our preferences (and budget). Leading up to the wedding, we were supported by Kelci (our wedding planner) along with the other staff members to ensure everything went perfectly. We had to make some short notice changes and The Ferry House were very accommodating. We are very pleased with how our wedding went and the food was delicious! We have already recommended it as a venue for a friend's wedding. Couldn't be more happy. Thank you!

Everything went perfectly, the staff were excellent, the food was amazing and everyone loved it, there was a great choice of food as well. Every recommended supplier i.e. toast master and DJ were brilliant and we were not disappointed. Victoria was excellent in helping us arrange everything and her support was brilliant. The day was very well organised and perfect. Firework display was great value for money and they looked very professional and added a massive wow factor highlight.

By Kirsty and Simon, on 18 Feb 2016

A MASSIVE thank you to Victoria, Kelci, Lauren, and all the team at the FHI for what was an amazing wedding day. The Barn on the day of the wedding looked absolutely stunning; the team obviously worked so hard to turn our vision into reality. The staff were phenomenal, and nothing was ever too much trouble. The food was out of this world, and all our guests were commenting on how delicious it was! The FHI staff also put up with my millions of e-mails and answered all my questions very promptly! The day went so smoothly and we can't thank you enough. A great place to get married!

We’ve been thinking about how we could possibly put into words, just how amazing you made our special day. Thanks to you, all our friends and family - local and from abroad - felt absolutely welcome. We were worried that there may be a problem with the language barrier, but we needn’t worry at all. Your excellent service exceeded our expectations. Everybody in your team was really committed, spot on, focused, super professional and highly experienced. We couldn’t have asked for a better team, and we’ll always be grateful for what you all have done for us. Oh and the food was absolutely delicious! We still receive compliments for the amazing vegan buffet, it was beyond wow.

We can't thank The Ferry House Inn staff enough - fabulous organisation and help prior to the wedding; fabulous staff on the day; a great venue with great food and every single one of my guests said how amazing The Ferry House Inn is. I loved the day and intend to visit the Inn on our anniversary every year (at least!) so we can continue to enjoy this great venue.
