“Excellent historical pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Excellent lounge bar of historic hotel and restaurant in the cobblestoned streets of the centre of Rye with huge open fireplace, spanning one whole wall. Great traditional pub with fantastic ambiance. Well worth a visit.

“Watch your head if you are tall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This is an old little pub with lots of character. Be warned, watch your head when you are in. The pub is very cosy and always has good atmopshere. Just the prices are a bit expensive and so, we will come here occasionally. By the way, parking may be a problem for big cars.

“We only had a drink here .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We only stopped here for a drink . However we met and got chatting to a local man that gave us some information and stories about the place and its history . We had a look around and found the Mermaid had lots of character and we felt we would of liked to of stayed here , even though it supposedly haunted !

“Amazing Bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

We did not stay or eat in the restaurant of the Mermaid as both were too expensive (restaurant is very expensive even compared to London prices!) but as a lover of old and beautiful pubs we had too lovely evenings having a drink in the Mermaid bar and beautiful sitting rooms that are open to non residents. The staff we so incredibly helpful and told us about the history of the Mermaid which I find fascinating. Such a wonderful place to have a drink after dinner (or before!). Highly recommended.
