My wife and I have had the absolute pleasure of staying in the "Kings Lodge" What a beautiful, quaint, quiet and relaxing break it has been. Everything, and I mean everything has been thought of in the Lodge so it is literally a "home from home"! Nothing is to much trouble, just ask and it's given without needing to ask... More

My wife treated me to a weekend break here. We met some friends there who also stayed. The food was very good and the service was fine. In fact the only bad point was the fact that the manager felt it was acceptable to inform us and our friends that we had paid different rates for the same type of... More

To start with all members of staff are very welcoming, helpful and on top professional form. I stayed in the champagne room which is beautifully decorated and clean. We where fortunate to be able to have a tour around some of the other rooms by the very enthusiastic owner Lisa who designed all the rooms herself, we especially found 'The... More

Nice table which seated are family of 6 comfortably,not to close to the bar and nowhere near the kitchen. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Food came after a reasonable wait and was a sizeable portion that left us well fed but with room for dessert. All round a good evening for the family and fully enjoyed.

Myself and my husband love the hisoric and character-filled medieval town of Rye, and where better to spend for my birthday? We stayed at the Kings Head in the lavish Champagne Room, and enjoyed a sumptuous meal. The main thing that stands out is that Steve and Lisa who run the pub, really enjoy what they do, and enjoy looking... More
