Weddings & Functions at the Mermaid Inn
A romantic setting for your wedding, a private or a business function
Our Beautiful Tudor Room, set on two levels, is a truly romantic setting for weddings - with its low hewn beams and latticed windows. The polished hard-wood dance floor on the lower level leads, through draped French doors, on to a small, private patio area. It is totally self-contained with its own kitchen, well-stocked bar and facilities. It can accommodate up to a maximum of 90 guests, seated, and up to a maximum of 80 guests for a Buffet.


There are two Beauty Salons within Rye, both of which can offer packages to suit your special day.


The Rye Retreat, which is affiliated with Aveda can offer a range of traditional beauty treatments and alternative therapies.


For that ‘extra luxury’ the highly qualified staff will visit you at ‘The Mermaid’ for your treatments, by prior arrangement.

Our small dining room, which has a tranquil ambience and charm, all of its own, is especially sought after for private dinner parties and intimate Wedding Breakfasts. It has a maximum seating for 16 guests and is ideally situated - looking out over Mermaid Street whilst adjacent to our Main Restaurant.


Rye has four churches within its walls – St. Mary the Virgin (Church of England), St.
Anthony of Padua (Catholic), Rye Baptist Church and Rye Methodist Church. Also, for Civil Ceremonies, the picturesque Town Hall centred in the Citadel of Rye, is a
popular venue. If one books a Civil Ceremony in the Town Hall, Rye’s very own
Town Crier, in full dress, will lead you and your guests to your Reception, offering a traditional Town Crier’s blessing!


Rye, especially ‘The Mermaid’, can offer varied and beautiful backdrops for your Wedding Photographs. They can include shots of the famous, cobbled Mermaid Street to intimate photographs taken in front of our Giants’ Fire Place.


Our Private Board Room can hold up to a maximum of 12 guests and is also situated overlooking Mermaid Street. It is especially popular as a meeting room with full facilities available, or as the setting for a secluded Luncheon / Dinner Party.
