The Grove Ferry Pub

Originally a lavender farm and hotel, The Grove has a fascinating steeped history. Built by the crafty Georgians, the building is actually on stilts as it sits so close to the river.

Having had a bit of a chequered past with fires, flooding and cars driving through the building (don’t ask), the pub was synthetically refurbished in the Spring of 2015. It now boasts a tap room with Kentish ales taken directly from the cask, an open planned garden kitchen and bar, and a huge riverside terrace.

With six lovely en suite bedrooms, the pub attracts weary travellers from near and afar, including families looking for a unique and characterful venue where they can all relax. And the rustic riverside boathouse is terrific for holding weddings and parties. Whatever the occasion, The Grove have an offer.
