good family restaurant

Great lamb and steak dishes, cozy enough for couples but also fine for family groups. Can get busy on a Saturday night and doesn't open too late. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

Went here today for a quick lunch as was in Rye for a Sunday stroll. This place caught our eye so we popped in.. Three young "dudes" looking after things and all very polite and friendly.. Food was good and reasonably priced.. Could pay a little bit more attention to the service though but other than that 3/5

Surprising, the outside doesn't look much but once inside it is lovely and light with a warm welcome from the staff. We both had skate which is a favourite of ours and it was perfectly cooked. My husband had Baileys creme brulee which he said was gorgeous but it couldn't have been better than the lemon cheesecake. I am a... More

Cod and chips (£10.50)-cod was small. Chips were fine. Fish/batter was a little watery-not as crisp as I'd hoped. Seafood platter (similar price)-good range and good value but quality/flavour disappointing. Atmosphere ok but bland music played through poor sound system. Good location and service was fine. We found better alternative lunch venues wandering around Rye afterwards.

Nice and clean restaurant with attentive staff. Great food, the starters we had were quite substantial. My friend had the goats cheese tart with salad, but because she can't have pastry they made up one without the pastry! I had the salmon and crayfish salad - which was really enough for the lunchtime meal, but I persevered and ate the... More

Was really looking forward to this meal- but frozen chips/ the sole could have done with a few extra minutes of cooking and no check on how things were all added to a disappointment for me. When pointed out all I got was a shrug and tell us next time and we will do the fish longer-. I shall not... More

Had the Dover sole, very nice, well cooked and served with a smile. Very friendly helpful staff. We would definitely go back.

A chain cafe with a set menu and a fair range of choices. Good solid food as you would expect from a chain set menu. Service was pleasant and proficient

We visited on a Saturday evening, although the decor wasn't plush we had a table for two near a window so we didn't experience the long table and benches mentioned in another review. The welcome was warm, and the service polite, quick and very pleasant background music while we ate. We both ate fish one from the special board, the... More
