The Mermaid Inn

UK England East Sussex Rye

Mermaid Street Rye TN31 7EY

It’s four-poster beds and bumps in the night at this self-styled jewel in the crown of Rye. The Inn was built in 1420 and the norman cellars date back to 1156. Once a notorious smugglers’ den this is now one of the oldest buildings in Rye and has all the charm you'd expect. It’s a traditional looking inn with ivy out front and dark wood within, and is surprisingly like the Tardis: somehow it manages to pack 31 rooms under its seemingly modest roof. One way it does this is with corridors that feel like secret passages leading you to the individual rooms which vary in style, some boast good views form their tiny windows. Downstairs the restaurants fuses british and french cuisine, while the lounge has a roaring open fire to keep you warm in winter.
