Comment from the September Tours:

” Dear Judith
I just wanted to thank you for taking the trouble to take my visitors and me round the Mermaid. They have now returned to USA, and were still saying the trip to Rye and the Mermaid was the highlight of their six week tour round England and Scotland. For me, it was the perfect day despite the weather.”

We are now taking bookings for the last Sunday of each month, Tours at 4pm and 5pm. We only ask for a donation to our charity

Press and Reviews

The Restaurant at The Mermaid:

Our Festive Menu is now available to enjoy with family & friends …….

Recent Reviews:

“Superb food in an historic setting. Loved my cauliflower with marmite ice cream. It worked. Good choice of gins in the bar and the wine list good and the young staff were attentive and amusing. “

“Steeped in history. A very atmospheric setting, whether it’s a romantic occasion or just dinner out. Food was inventive, tasty and served with timely courtesy. The Bar was full of people at 6pm on a monday eve. That should tell you it is a good place to go! “

“We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the hotel including scallops for starters and local Romney lamb for main course and delicious Bordeaux wine. Some other reviewers have commented that they find the portions small Certainly they are not ‘pub portions’ but that’s not the point here – dishes are well-prepared and presented and taste exquisite and a 3 course meal is perfectly filling. And the service was excellent with mainly locally trained waiters/waitresses. “
