As our first choice restaurant was fully booked, we thought we would give Careys a try. It is not a very inviting restaurant - cold inside, harsh lighting and the most uncomfortable seating. There were not many people eating and so there was no atmosphere at all - there was some music playing somewhere in the background but the overall... More

Nice food but we were the only people in this restaurant and it is quiet large so felt rather lost, felt a bit sorry for the staff. Ate in another one on another night and the atmosphere was so different maybe they need to look at what they are maybe doing wrong to be this empty, shame because as noted... More

We had eaten here the last time in Rye....so decided to try again...wished we hadn't..after a fantastic meal at the Ambrette the night before, we felt really let down here. We both had scallops for starter, which were plump and fresh. My wife ordered marsh lamp chump chops, I ordered skate from the specials board. The young lad who was... More

We went for dinner & ordered only to discover one of the "specials" was off but still on the board. So re ordered food. Starter came & was ok, can't do too much damage with Scallops..my husbands fish came, cooked very plainly which was fine but when he asked for some lemon to squeeze on it there were gasps...Lemon, on...

I tend to ignore negative reviews from sad people who write pages and pages. Get a life ! We ate there on a Wednesday evening in mid-September. Generous helping of whitebait for starters; rib-eye steak done to perfection; merlot very reasonably priced. Two young staff, friendly and efficient. OK, plates could have been hotter, but otherwise service very good.

To be fair, when my husband and I tipped up there around 8.00 p.m. and peered through the window, we thought hmmm, this does not look good as it was practically empty. However, I was hungry, wearing high heels and, having threatened to punch my husband's lights out if he made me walk around the town AGAIN, we ventured inside.... More

Stopped today after a wander around Rye. Pleasant lunch time seafood platter, plentiful portion, fresh & tasty @ £10.95 well priced. My friend enjoyed salmon fish cakes served on fresh asparagus with a poached egg & hollandaise sauce @ 12. Washed down with a pleasant Pinot Grigio @ £14. The restaurant is spacious, the staff friendly & attentive.
