The Ship Inn is a family and dog friendly pub and dining room with individually designed hotel rooms. Located in the heart of the historic East Sussex town of Rye, The Ship Inn is a hub for locals, visitors and friends alike. Four out of our eleven boutique rooms are especially cosy for man’s best friend. We are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving locally sourced seasonal food and offer a wide range of beers, wines and spirits served with flair and enthusiasm.

1966 - We still believe

Another four years rolls round again and this time we find ourselves in Russia. Will this be our year?

Let’s hope our boys deliver this summer. Watch all the key games live at The Ship. We still believe… do you?
