How we roll at the Ferry House Inn...
Our team are the most important part of our success as a business, and in a small business such as ours they become like a second family. We encourage our team to apply our five core values to everything we do, every day, as we believe this delivers an exceptional customer experience.
We are committed to improving the 16th century pub every year, with the most recent additions being a brand new play area, an Oak gazebo, a new wedding garden, a new bridal suite, and much more. This makes for an ever improving, ever changing work place which is exciting to work in.
We are extremely proud of our pub, but even prouder of our team who work hard to run it to such a high standard. The majority of our staff are long serving, which makes our small experienced team perfect representatives for our family business, and we hope you will enjoy meeting them when you visit.

We are looking for somebody who is dedicated and confident in ensuring the customer has the best experience, taking pride in all jobs from cocktail making to food service. Most importantly someone with a big personality to welcome to our Ferry House family.
Our housekeeping team are looking for another super fast housekeeper with naturally meticulous standards to join the team. Shift work 9-2.30pm and 8-4pm is available - to include at least 1 weekend day, up to 4 shifts per week (flexible).
We are looking for an weddings/event planner to join us ready for a very busy 2020 season of more than 140 events. As a coordinator in our team you will plan weddings from the day the couple book right up to the day after the biggest day of their life. You will send many a happy couple down the aisle - being calm and totally in control at all times, in what can be a fast paced buzzy environment. And in the office you will be able to seamlessly juggle at least 5 different spreadsheets at any one time, with a coffee, 10 different procedures, client meetings for table plan crisis solving - and that is just a Monday morning...all with a [albeit slightly demented at times] smile on your face (we can supply you the E-numbers via cake if required.)
