Come to Rye

…and stay in Bee Cottage

Originally a 16th-century warehouse that stored the contraband seized from smugglers, The Ship covers every possible base – great local ales (try something from the Old Dairy brewery), a hearty menu, cocktails, board games and newspapers.

Inside is a nice mix of scruffy sofas, mismatched chairs and big, low-hanging pendant lights, pepped up with a sort of mid-century tally-ho vintage spin. The staff go out of their way to merrily accommodate the mix of locals and tourists.

If you’re not up for cooking breakfast at Bee Cottage, come here for eggs benedict, waffles or a full English, a good way to set yourself up for the day.
