Jobs at The George in Rye

The George in Rye is a 34-room boutique hotel with an independent restaurant, "The George Grill", a locals' bar/pub and courtyard (around 100 covers in total) - and a Ballroom which caters for weddings and private dining.

The George is one of the founding examples of a boutique English country coaching inn, employing exceptional standards of comfort, food and hospitality. The business has grown steadily over the last 7 years, most notably 2 years ago with the extension of the business to incorporate a new kitchen for "The Grill", a doubling of the restaurant seating area, and the addition of ten further bedrooms.

We have won many awards, including runner-up of "independent hotel of the year" (Independent Hotel Show, 2012), and "best luxury staycation" by the Daily Express (2012) - more recently Top 10 UK Romantic Hotel in the Sunday Times (2013). We are very much a destination hotel, and a member of Mr & Mrs Smith as well as other premium hotel marketing groups - as well as being somewhat of a local institution having a loyal following of customers.
