We fancied a few night away at short notice, and chose the Kings Head with fingers crossed. What an exceptional place this is. The 'cottage'; rooms are spacious, beautifully clean, and decorated by somebody with a flair for design. Staff are very helpful and seem to be enjoying what they do. Food is exceptionally good, but if I had been... More

On the rebound from a hotel that no longer welcomes dogs, we tried the recently upgraded Kings Head and found it to be an ideal bed, breakfast and dinner overnight location. Cottage Room served us well (though not sure about the heating when the cold returns) and the food and drink was of a good standard. Car parking right outside... More

Our stay at the Kings Head was absolutely fabulous. Staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. You can actually walk into Rye but make sure you have comfortable shoes ! We were allocated the Parisian room which was charming. The comfortable bed and tasteful decor made it a very pleasant stay. We also reserved a table for the... More

This recently refurbished property is fresh and beautiful. The owners could not have worked harder - nothing was too much trouble. From giving me an icebucket of fresh milk rather than the sachets, to changing my room for a quieter one when I couldn't sleep during the afternoon, the service was impressive. Afterwards I slept SO well. But the food... More

I stay at the Kings Head Inn every 2 weeks on business. The staff (Lisa, Steve, Lucy, Robbie & Ellie) are always the perfect hosts, and I cannot fault them. I've stayed in most of the rooms now, and they're always spotlessly clean, and the beds and bedding very comfortable. Also there is and excellent wifi signal (no charge). The... More

A really nice pub - good food, great selection of ales: and very friendly staff with some very nice accommodation. The pub is between gastro and country in style, and the rooms are described as "boutique" - which is entirely fair. Very recently and tastefully decorated, cosy, stylish and spotlessly clean. As B&Bs go, this place was great.

What can I say, we have eaten here several times, lovely good food and great pub menu, traditional good quality locally sourced food. We will return again and again and if wish to stay in the area will book a room again in one of the beautifully designed rooms.

We visited the restaurant on 28th August in the evening (3 adults - 2 children).We received a warm welcome and were promptly seated and drink orders taken - the drinks arrived very quickly with menus. There was plenty of choice plus a" specials of the day " board. The service was quick ( essential with two hungry children) despite the... More
