my family and I were staying close by at pontins and was totally disappointed with the poor quality of food that was served, so we ventured out to Rye to find an alternate. But as we didn't know the area and got a little lost and thank god we came across the Kings Head. We arrived a little early for... More

What an amazing place to stay!!! I've been working down in rye for 3 weeks and stayed in a couple of the other b&b's and the kings head is by far the best of all. Lovely and very well priced food but what has kept me coming back most of all is the staff, an incredible collection of people who... More

Spent two nights here last weekend. The Inn has been very tastefully refurbished. The whole Inn is clean and well appointed. We spent one night in The Beach Hut,(dont!!). Whilst this room is small but delightful it also contains the hot water boiler for the Inn (albeit in a locked cupboard). The thing fired up every few minutes and was... More

Fantastic rooms, restaurant and welcome for our dog Stanley! The cottage rooms are warm, comfortable and tastefully fitted with huge beds. Really good food in the bar restaurant and a genuinely friendly welcome. Looking forward to going back

Well what a lovely place to stay and relax. I was in Rye for a course at Great Dixter and this was a perfect place to stay. I had a cottage on the courtyard which was huge. The room was very clean and well appointed. The shower nearly blew me off my feet!!! I drank in the bar and the... More

We had a 3 night stay at the beginning of October - and it was excellent. We had cottage no 1, which was clean, comfortable and well decorated, in fact even the hair dryer was colour coordinated! We were made very welcome and the tea and coffee facilities and fluffy white towels were generous. The breakfast too was plentiful and... More

It is quite difficult to find a good "Sunday Roast" after 2.00 p.m. in the area we live. We had watched the re-furbishment and re-naming of the King's Head with great interest. We initially decided to go for a drink on a Monday evening an were very impressed with the decor. We looked at the menu and noticed lunch was... More
