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 ranked us as the best restaurant in Rye for six, consecutive years, until the guide’s latest issue. We have also been recommended twice in the 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 Saturday (and Bank Holiday Sunday). Bookings between 7 pm and 9 pm.
Please note that we are TEMPORARILY CLOSED for LUNCHES until the end of this year, 2021, but our aim is to resume the lunches on Saturday and Sunday early in the new year, 2022.
