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.

Warm regards,

Midweek Escapes

There comes a time when you simply need to get away from it all. One night or two nights? It doesn’t matter. All you need is a fresh breeze, amazing food and drink and a cosy room to snuggle up in. Choose from one night, including dinner, bed and breakfast from only £105 or two nights with dinner on one night, including breakfast from £170. Plan an escape that’s far from the usual with The Ship Inn.
