The Ship Inn is in the centre of Rye at the bottom of Mermaid Street. The pub was built in 1592 originally as a warehouse to store contraband seized from smugglers. It is now a characterful countryside pub with old beams and wooden floors and various areas to sit in and relax the sunny end in the mornings to eat breakfast and read the papers big tables for group Sunday lunches that last all afternoon or cups of tea by the fireplace after a long walk on Camber Sands.
The Ship has 10 rooms all with en suite baths or showers. All the food we serve is cooked entirely from scratch by our chefs using locally sourced produce. Dogs children even mother in laws are all very welcome so when you next feel like a bit of seaside / countryside R&R - you know where we are.
