The Kings Head Inn has undergone extensive refurbishment ready for re opening early 2014. We have 5 luxurious modern individually designed en suite cottages each with private entrance, tea & coffee making facilities, TV, and free Wifi, plus 5 beautiful en suite rooms with the same level of quality as the cottages but with the added bonus of staying in the 300 year old Coaching Inn.

The accommodation was great, modern and very clean. The breakfast had lots of options and was really nice. The staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. We highly recommend Kings Head Inn and would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I had a long weekend away in Rye and went here for Sunday lunch, we met our Daughter, Grandson and Husband there, It was lovely, very polite staff nothing to much trouble for them. My steak was very tough and didn’t eat it and they took it off the bill no quibble about it. Also garden is beautiful, everyone well apart and felt very safe.

Where to begin 🤔.... Arrived to find ample parking and immediately greeted with a smile and warm welcome upon entering. The decor is fresh yet traditional with subtle exposed oak, great lighting and a mixture of well spaced soft upholstered seating. Despite being full the owner and her staff gave such a high touch level of attention and service to each and every customer - professional, charming and very much on point. It’s such a treat to receive truly amazing quality food and professional service whilst feeling valued and appreciated. Your efforts and attention to detail really show and made our visit so special. Keep up the good work 😊 Will definitely be back soon.

Stopped off on our way into Camber Sands. Rang in advance to check availability which was fine. We both had the steak on stones which was delicious. No room for pudding although the menu looked great. Service was really good.
