We make British food with a classic or modern slant and source our ingredients from the local fields, woodlands and waters. We use free range eggs, milk and cream from farms up the road. We serve a selection of local marsh lamb and pork, and fresh fish is landed a few hundred meters from us (the gurnard, which tail is on our sign, was caught in Rye Bay).

We are proud to say that The Good Food Guide ranks us as the best restaurant in Rye for the sixth, consecutive year. We have also been recommended twice in the new guide Where Chefs Eat. Only 40 restaurants outside London are listed, and we are the only one in Sussex.

We are open for dinner, Wednesday to Friday from 7 pm, Saturdays (and Bank Holiday Sunday), from 6.30 pm. And for lunch, Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm.

We offer a very good value set menu for lunch on Saturdays and Sundays, and dinner on Wednesday and Thursday. Please see ‘sample menus’ for typical options and prices.
