There is nothing to fault about this place as a B&B, except for one caveat - see below. The rooms are modern and clean, the beds are comfortable, the wifi is rock-solid, the breakfast is good, the staff are friendly and helpful, what is not to like! The centre of Rye is an easy ten minute walk. The one caveat... More

What a lovely place! We stayed in one of the little cottages in the yard behind the pub. Beautifully presented decor with a huge comfy bed and a lovely bathroom with toiletries. But the best bit-we stayed on one of the coldest nights this year so far and it was soooo warm. Thank you Kings Head - that's what I... More

We had a fantastic stay at The Kings Head with our two young children. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating and made us all feel very at home. We stayed in the Parisian room which has an interconnecting room which was perfect for the children. The restaurant and bar are within baby monitor range and so we were able... More

We ate New Years Day Lunch here and really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. We were a large party of 14 and were accommodated in a private room. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was lovely, well presented, tasty and generous portions. 3 course, drinks and tip came to £30 per head excellent value for money. The... More

We have been here many times now. Usually for a birthday and it never disappoints. We have always had a lovely meal and a great value meal at that. Cannot fault a thing. I have put 5 for the room however we've never stayed here but I am sure it is as lovely as the rest of our experiences.

We booked for New Years day. There were 14 of us. We had a small room reserved for us. Everything was fabulous, the service, the price and in particular the food. The bill including the tip was £30 per head. This included two people drinking alcohol. The food was perfect, with really generous portions. The atmosphere and the setting was... More

We booked a last minute night away between Xmas and New Year with our two small children and were immediately impressed. We were shown to our room (The Champagne Room) which is stunning! Decorated in muted creams, golds and browns with quite an opulent feel and beautiful fabrics, furnishings and soft furnishings. Beautifully comfy and very large double bed with... More

My family and i had a meal on sunday for my mums birthday and we were not disapointed. The staff were very polite and always smiling and the food was exceptional, generous portions, locally sourced and cooked to perfection, no one had anything to complain about which is very rare as they are very fussy! If your looking for good... More

Our room was big and comfortable with a large bed. Everything we needed was provided, Main attraction was the food and quality of the service. Steve is an exceptional mine host. Very obliging in meeting the needs of a difficult diet. Could not have been more willing to make our food interesting and delicious. All the staff followed his lead... More

Now this is good, first of all, welcoming staff, so important. Good menu, blackboard with specials, and to be honest we could have eaten many things on the menu, and didn't know which to choose. Reasonably priced and excellent decor, very pleasant surroundings, peaceful. Service good, and everything had flavour, we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Pity this is not listed... More
