It was a 50th birthday celebration for my sister in law, the staff could not be more welcoming. We stayed in the main house but the cottages looked equally inviting. We ate early as there was some entertainment (Sam Calver, musician with a guitar was amazing) and food was excellent and the service good. Rooms are lovely, the ones on... More

I've never written on trip adviser before but we had such a great stay, we felt we had to! We booked the Kings Head as we wanted a dog friendly place to stay while visiting Camber Sands and Rye. The week before our stay we found out it had been on Four in a Bed! How it didn't win, we... More

We arrived Friday night from London and were welcomed by friendly staff. Rooms were really clean and warm and the evening food menu was fantastic. I slept well, my friends less so, their room was a bit too warm. Breakfast the next day was only ok, not one to linger over, but not a problem for us as we were... More

We arrived on a Sunday and had booked a late lunch with them which I would recommend as they were very busy but the service was excellent and the food very enjoyable. We were allocate a room in the annex which was very spacious but did not have any hanging space which could have been a problem if we had... More

My boyfriend and I decided to start our weekend away with a nights stay at this wonderful boutique b&b and it is very easy to say that we will be back again. We were celebrating our anniversary and having correspondence with one of the ladies that runs the hotel, she very kindly upgraded us to the white room which I... More

Booked a table and was seated in the snug area of the restaurant which was lovely and cosy for our small party. All staff who served us were polite, friendly and efficient!! They all seemed to want to be... More

Went with my beautiful lady for a relaxing weekend and found this to be a beautifully run inn. Steve and Lisa are welcoming and very genuine and have a marvellous team of staff around them who all seem to very sincerely enjoy working for them. The room was just idyllic and the food was spot on. Cannot recommend enough and... More

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.
