About The Mermaid Inn

One of England’s oldest and loveliest inns, with Norman cellars dating from 1156, the Mermaid, rebuilt in 1420, offers tradition and charm in abundance.

A jewel in the crown of Rye, the inn has a wide range of accommodation including rooms with four-poster beds and fascinating secret passages. The lounge bar boasts of one of the largest open log fireplaces in the country. The AA Rosette restaurant offers fine British and French cuisine and the head chef is proud to use only the freshest of local ingredients.

For many years The Mermaid has been frequented by artists from the stage and screen: Charlie Chaplin, Pierce Brosnan, Andy Garcia and Johnny Depp to name a few. Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and Prince Edward have also visited. Painters from all over the world have spent many a happy hour with brush in hand, capturing the rare character of this beautiful inn.

Rooms: 31.

Originally dating from 1156, the Mermaid was rebuilt in 1420, much as it still stands today, as the principal Inn of Rye.

The Linen Fold Paneled Restaurant has been awarded Two AA Rosettes, and offers Fine Dining, with British and French cuisine.
