Limited menu & very basic food but the chips were lovely. But single use plastic cutlery? Paper plates at a restaurant we can just about cope with as past the summer season so saving on washing up but maybe some bio-degradable option? :(

We stopped off at the Rye Bay on a hot Sunday for a cool pint with a large group of friends. We were warmly welcomed and served by a very friendly lady. Reasonably priced drinks and food on offer

Ordered takeaway for the first time for 4 adults and 3 teenagers. Service was fast and food good. Had spicy chicken bites & chips (slightly spicy), 8oz cheeseburger, 8oz cheese & bacon burger, American style chicken burger, scampi, hot dog and crab cakes. Food tasted...good, well priced except for crab cakes which were a little pricey.More

Absolutely amazing service from the lady! Even under pressure and being busy she was always polite and organised! Burgers were amazing and the chips were to die for!

The food was good. Not the absolute best in the world. But absolutely nothing wrong with it. The service was great. We told the staff that it's our son's 3rd birthday, and they brought candles for his cake and sang happy birthday. They didn't have...to do that. But they made a 3 year old's day. Lovely gesture. We enjoyed our time and will be back.More
