“Wlilliam the Greek”

William The Conqueror
Ranked #31 of 106 Restaurants in Rye
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$12 - US$18
Cuisines: Pub
Description: Newly Refurbished: The William The Conqueror is a family-friendly pub on the banks of the River Rother. Situated in bustling Rye Harbour, it is the perfect place to while away some time watching the world go by. The harbour is home to a Nature Reserve and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest so there is plenty of wildlife to spot. As the Pub name suggests, the area is famous for being the site of the Norman invasion, and there are countless references locally for history fans. The pub is popular for its Real Ales and has featured in the Good Pub Guide. The new and improved Menu features dishes from around the world, with emphasis on locally sourced Fish and Mediterranean Specialities. Dogs are welcome!

Lady Crown and I threw caution to the wind and braved an unexploded bomb, outside to finally visit at tea-time on Monday 26th July 2021.

Wearing black balaclavas in memory of The defuct 'Inkerman Arms', we were initially welcomed as members of the local IRA.

Enjoying the sunshine, and other people's dogs - who were friendly, we tucked in to sumptuous Souvlaki and it was great

An eclectic menu but the Cypriot twist was excellent - good pub with good beer along with good food - nothing to not like! Topped by very friendly staff who worked very hard.

We sat outside with a group of friends! The view it's lovely! Greek specialists are really tasty! And of course refreshing pints of Spitfire and Masterbrew. Can't wait to be back again once on holiday
