The Ship Inn Rye

The Ship Inn Rye is located on the strand close to Simply Italian and only a short walk into town.

Walk in to The Ship Inn and be assured of a warm welcome. This former warehouse dating to 1592 was once used to store contraband from smugglers.

Strike out to explore the cobbled byways of historic Rye – half-timbered houses, ancient pubs, a fine church, and castle-turned-museum with cannons – or discover the glories of Camber Sands and Rye Nature Reserve.

There’s something for everyone here – singletons, couples, friends and families. And it’s just a couple of hours by train from London.

At The Ship, our love for food and our passion for wine sets us apart. We take pride in our identity as a proper British pub, committed to celebrating the excellence of English wine from our award-winning Balfour Winery.

Our menu combines classics with contemporary delights. Savour favourites such as hearty pies and mash, the iconic fish and chips, and an outstanding burger, among other dishes. Please note our menus are subject to change and those on our website are sample menus.

If you consider yourself a foodie, a trip to The Ship is a must.
