We walked from Rye town centre out to Rye Harbour. Boring walk but what a gem at the end!
We had not booked but the friendly staff found us a table with a short wait. Wide selection of draft beers and good wine list.
We had a varied selection off the menu and thoses with an appetite where well sorted with the portions. All food was freshly cooked and presented well. I must particularly recommend the Mini Meze as a main course to share.

We dropped in after a walk around for lunch. The pub is clean with glorious food, the Sticky Toffee pudding was exceptionally scrumptious, will definitely be back soon.

Located in a picturesque position this is more than just a pub. It has great drinks but it is the food we love! If you like Greek/Mediterranean cuisine you'll love this place. Friendly staff too. One of our favourites and an absolute must if you're in or near Rye Harbour.

First of all the Staff are great - 5*. Location is 5*. Unfortunately the food is really hit and miss. I had Fish and Chips - really mediocre and severely lacking in taste. We also had a mixed platter starter which was seriously heartburn inducing, Sausages inedible but Chicken Skewers were excellent and so were the Kids meals..... The beer was really good and the atmosphere was nice. My rating is really 3.5*. Maybe next time it will be more consistent.
