Fab little Inn. Dog friendly too! Not that we had a dog with us but great if you like to take your four legged friend away. Lots of character in the pub itself and nice menu. Reasonably priced too. Breakfast choice was brilliant. We had Eggs Benedict and Kippers, very nice. The rooms are cosy but funky. Really lovely friendly... More

I really liked this place! My room was comfortable and full of character with exposed beams. It is not luxurious I would say but it is perfect for the location: It really fit the town of Rye, which is a great place to visit. The included full English breakfast was the best I had of the four or five places... More

We came here on my sister's hen do. We had a fab table upstairs- food was great and service was great. Lovely little find in Rye. Great location for a wander round Rye. Would definitely come again. Thank you!

Although our 2 rooms were pleasant and clean, with a stick of rock on the bed, £125 per room was excessive. Our room (4) was very noisy due to, I presume, being over the kitchen-actual conversations could be heard and then items thrown into bins outside. We were pleasantly surprised that breakfast was served until 11am and although the food... More

Visited this pub whilst staying in rye. on arriving the atmosphere seemed great, however after reading the menu which only had a few choices we ordered. but was disappointed with the extremely bland under seasoned and over priced food we payed for. So if you are thinking of eating in rye go to another of the great places to eat.

Decide to go to the Ship Inn for a quick bite, we were given menu which was quite sparse, we were told that the special was a beef sandwich which we decided to have When it came to pay the bill I was totally shocked , £10 for a beef sandwich what a rip off. No prices, no choice of... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Ship Inn and really enjoyed our stay. We managed to sneak in a last minute booking in the final room they had available, using their 3 for 2 offer on their website, which was a great deal. We had the last small double, which was just fine for 2 humans and a small dog.... More

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
