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 runs it on as a full time concern with his partner Maria and their one year old son Sebastian. Paul and Maria recently took back the Oxney Gourmet Pie & Burger Bar, Wittersham, Kent, which Maria manages with her sister Mihaela.
