Welcome to The Ferry

Paul’s family have lived in Stone since the First World War and is only one of a few families who can say that. Having run a number of successful companies he originally bought The Ferry Inn in the 1980’s. Wally Milstead who had been the Landlord at The Ferry Inn for more than 30 years continued to run it until his retirement in 2003. Paul now manages the Ferry with his partner Maria and their young son Sebastian.

Meet the Team

Jamie Olive, our new Head Chef has now started with us. Jamie worked for many years at the Sands, a 2 rosette and AA 4 star hotel in Margate as Senior Sous Chef, and his transfer to the Ferry gives him the opportunity to bring his own style of cooking and new dishes to the the much loved Ferry Inn menu.

With Jamie on the Ferry Inn restaurant team are Tom Hopper, formerly of the Hope & Anchor Hotel in Rye who is working as number 2 and Maria, Co-owner with Paul Withers Green, who provides cover and back-up.
