Met up for lunch on a Wednesday. The three of us ate the following 2 x Ship Inn burgers and a fish and chips. We had a few drinks and the bill came to £61.00. The burger consisted of a cheese burger, an enamel mug of French fries, some mayonnaise and a few slices of gherkin, that was it, no... More

We stayed at The Ship Inn for a 1 night break over the weekend with our dog because we didn't feel like driving back home the same day. What a great discovery this place is, especially if you have a doggy companion as the staff are so friendly and accomodating and they even get a sausage at breakfast! Andrew was... More

This is what you call a really human, nothing is any trouble, kind of place. We stayed here for one night during our tour around The Cinque Ports and had a great time at this pub. When we arrived, we were met with a cheery smile and bubbly atmosphere. The beer was great too as the rooms very typical of... More

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
