Stopped here and had a pint of prawns lovely to sit outside in the sun and watch the world go by. The staff were attentive and friendly. Food and drinks were also good. Menu quite small and not much choice.however what I saw looked good and well presented.

The staff at the ship are all very friendly and helpful. Good selection of beers and a short but interesting menu. One draw back is rather expensive bar food as feel £9.00 little overpriced for a fish finger sandwich . Still recommend a visit

Came here for a party. Cocktails are pricey £9 upwards but very good. Soggy dollar painkiller, champagne monitor and the espresso cocktail stand out. Plenty of choice of beer on tap, Intried the freedom grand lager, refreshing and not too strong so a session beer, Food is good just had bar snacks and the monstrous fish finger sandwiches-enough to feed...

Continuing my tour of Rye and the surrounding area, this time it was the turn of The Ship Inn. Other reviews have nicely summed up the place, and what I found was in line with those: friendly and attentive staff, a nice atmosphere in the pub, interestingly different rooms with nice toiletries. More like home from home than most places... More

The Ship Inn was a great place for a two night break with our young dog. The room was clean and spacious with all amenities we needed. The breakfast was great - our dog particularly enjoyed his morning sausages! The pub below the rooms was lovely and a good sun trap on the outside tables. The Ship Inn is well... More

We escaped for a couple of days and The Ship Inn which came highly recommended met our expectations. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal and breakfast and the room was wonderfully decorated. Lovely touch with the Burt Bees toiletries but the Rubber Duck didn't float!
