My wife and I stayed here for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Steve and Lisa go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable in every way. They have an eye for detail and the bar, restaurant and rooms are finished with a touch of class. The rates are very affordable and the food... More

Beautiful weekend staying at the Kings Head. Stayed in a cottage, clean, comfortable, and spacious. Evening dinner & breakfast was excellent. Should you want to experience a 5 star relaxing weekend away, great food, superb service in beautiful surroundings then you won't go wrong at The Kings Head.

First visit with friends, after reading excellent reviews. Great welcome, food, service and ambience. Menu is local produce, fresh and good choice. Good portions and excellent value. We asked for a couple of minor changes which were dealt with without fuss. Lisa was the lovely hostess on the evening but all the staff are professional, helpful, courteous and enthusiastic in...

My family and I have eaten at The Kimgs Head on numerous occasions, it is a round trip of about 24 miles for us but well worth it. We spent our Christmas Day there .. The food is excellent, nothing is too much trouble, beautiful surroundings and the staff are all very hard working and professional at all times. We... More

Great place to stay with excellent staff, great food and beer. Good access to Rye which is a really attractive and interesting place to visit. This was our first visit to the area and we will certainly go back again and stay at The Kings Head.

Good family run pub up the hill from Rye town centre. As it was out of town we saw this as a bonus as parking was not an issue - we were able to drive right up outside of our "cottage room". It was an easy walk down into town and possible to come back up via footpaths through the... More

Very pleased with our choice of accommodation for our one night stay. All positive with every aspect of our Kings Head experience. The sleeping accommodation was perfect, clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant was very ambient and comfortable with a great choice of food. Very satisfied with both dinner and breakfast. Service was faultless.

I stayed at the Kings Head Rye with my wife overnight. Our room was away from the actual pub in a separate building. The room was lovely and clean and had everything you would expect with a quality hotel. The food was smashing and well priced. The interior of the pub is beautifully put together and comfortable. What was really... More

Me & my partner decided to choose the kings head to take a rare short break away from the children to celebrate three years together. We were not disappointed! On arrival we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome, shown which suite we were booked in to, and was told if there was anything we needed, just ask. Perfect. The... More
