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 unrivaled backdrops for your day.

We offer bespoke weddings, tailored to each couple, or package weddings, 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 your 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 70, 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 all our fresh produce is grown in our on-site Kitchen Garden. The Ferry House Inn was awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and 2018.

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-ons 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

We got married here on 20th July and I can't thank Emily and the team enough! We had the most amazing day and nothing was too much trouble. From start to finish everything was just perfect. How they dressed the barn for the wedding breakfast was just so beautiful it blew me away. Phil the toastmaster was just amazing and made sure everything was just perfect and is such a credit to The Ferry House. Thanks Phil! Amazing venue, amazing staff and would highly recommend this beautiful venue

Just recently got married at The Ferry House inn on Friday 13th July 2018 and we can't thank all the staff enough for putting soooo much effort into our lovely day!! Emily was amazing and took control of everything along with our toastmaster phil to ensure we had the most amazing day! Also Ellie was fantastic throughout the day and frankie who took over in the evening was brilliant too. Both were so informative and helpful! From the venue to the scenic views and quality of food this makes a great wedding venue and we are so glad we picked it! Thank you all so much for making our day so special and run smoothly!

Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Olivia Lea, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

We had our amazing wedding here on 7th July 2018 and couldn’t have asked for a better day! The team really do the best job, putting in so much hard work but making it seem so effortless! They looked after all the finer detail allowing us to relax and enjoy ourselves whilst everything ran smoothly in the background. That’s not even mentioning the location with that view

Venue Service

By Grant Thurlow, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 18 May 2018

During the run up, the coordinators were more than helpful in supporting us with our preparation. We cannot thankyou all enough for how incredible you made our day. I would recommend this venue to anybody getting married, going for a meal (as the food is sensational) or just for a pint of some delicious local ales & beers.

Perfect Day
Venue Service

By KimCunningham, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2018

We got married here the 26th April and it was the most perfect day. Emily & her team went above and beyond to make sure of a smooth running day and I can’t thank them Enough. The way they dressed the venue was more than I ever expected it to look like and I was a bit taken aback at the pure beauty of it. The food during the day was so good and everyone commented on how perfectly timed and smooth the day was alongside the great tasting food! The team was always on hand for any stupid questions I had running up to the wedding day and the communication with us and the team was continuous. I don’t think if it hadn’t if been for Emily being so professional I wouldn’t have trusted them as much as we did. So Thankyou so much ferry house inn & not forgetting Phil the toastmaster for making our wedding day amazing and more than I ever dreamt of! Kim & cliff

We got married here on the 19th March and from beginning to end it was complete perfection. The staff at FHI are amazing, Emily and Phil our toastmaster in particular we cannot thank enough. The communication leading up to the day and the running of the day itself was more than we could have dreamed. The food, as it has been every time we have had the pleasure to eat here was just beautiful. All of our guests agreed! Genuinely a wonderful place and we can't wait to come back. Thank you all xxx

Venue Service

By Natalie Coomber, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018

We got married here on 17th March 2018 and it was a magical day from start to finish. The venue itself is amazing and we have had so many comments from our guests saying how efficiently the day was run and that they had the best time. From our first meeting last year to the follow up emails after our big day the service, care and genuine interest that everyone we dealt with through out this has shown is outstanding and a testament to how good a team there is at FHI. We stayed in Mocketts cottage the night before which was superb and then the rooms above the night of the wedding and we can't fault any of it. You won't go wrong booking your special day here as it truly will be fantastic. Now to wait for the rest of the photos!! Natalie and James Coomber xxx

We are so happy and still on a high, our wedding was just amazing and I truly wish the day didn’t have to end. The Ferry House Inn will always have a special place in our hearts, thank you xxx

We had our wedding here Dec 17. It was amazing!!!! The location speaks for itself, making an excellent backdrop for our photos. They truly do look stunning. You won't be disappointed with the planning or running of your day either. Every member of staff could not be more helpful or accommodating, ensuring we had a glitch free day. The attention to detail, along with all the other attributes really does make this venue incredible!
