Welcome to The Grove Ferry, our 18th Century, Georgian manor that sits on the River Great Stour. Sitting in the heart of the ‘Garden of England’ we are just a stones throw away from the amazing coastal towns of Whitstable, Herne Bay, Broadstairs to name a few & a short drive from Canterbury city centre. With a huge garden that runs alongside the river, a garden bar, riverside terrace bar, main pub, boathouse function room & six B&B bedrooms we are a perfect escape into the countryside.

Our menu’s as seasonal, using the best from our surrounding farms & across the land.

Kim & her team are ready to welcome you to the pub for a coffee, pint or something to eat, if there is anything we can help with before your visit please just ask, all of the contact details are below.
