We lived in Rye, for some years, and used this pub regularly, when it was The Top O' The Hill, simply because the home cooking was so good, and the staff were so friendly. We have since moved from Rye, but visit this pub for lunch as our dentist is still in Rye, and we like to have a meal... More

We stayed lastnight in one of the cottages at the back of the pub. The pub and rooms we saw had all been finished off to a very high standard. We had a meal off the special board which was really nice. There is free wifi available all over the pub and in the cottages. I would stay again.

We have been visiting this hotel infrequently but regularly over more than 10 years, when it was known as the Top O' The Hill. We love what we call the 'Outdoor Rooms'. They are perfect for travelers with dogs as we can park outside and come and go for dog walks without disturbing anybody The facilities in the rooms are... More

Stayed one night in the Champagne room which was very spacious, comfortable and quirky. Evening dinner was excellent with a good selection of wines, cheeseboard and Port. Staff very friendly and accommodating, Traditional English breakfast very good (no lunch required!). The Owners and staff obviously take a great deal of pride in offering quality and comfort to their guests and... More

Stayed overnight this weekend and we were both impressed with the Kings Head. We had a lovely cottage room at the rear of the hotel, which was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and had all the facilities you would want. We ate in the restaurant last night and the food was really good and great value for money. We did have... More

Stayed there for two nights from the phone call to book to the morning we left everything was amazing. The rooms were great and had so much personality. The food was excellent we work in the trade and its very rare to find an establishment that ticks all the boxes.

Great 2 night stay at the Kings Head Steve and Lisa could not have been more welcoming and friendly, we had the Parisian room which was beautifully decorated clean and warm. Food was equally as good and staff friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended the Kings Head to our friends and family.
