Alright, it was a wet Thursday night and I was only one of 8 people eating. It was Rye scallop month so opted for scallops and mussels on asparagus (13 gbp) which was nicely presented though smothered in a creamy sauce which was tasty but overwhelmed what I should have been tasting which was a shame. Service a bit patchy... More

The exterior signage is discreet which probably explains why I haven't noticed this restaurant on my frequent previous visits to Rye, the staff informed me it opened seven years ago! We went there for Sunday lunch, the ground floor was full and it was heartening to see families with young children being made welcome. We had one starter, the poached... More

the best mussels i have ever tasted...locally sourced fat and tender...fish was also good...price is very reasonable for what we ate...the atmosphere a little flat but it was lunchtime so probably a bit better in the evening

The restaurant is pleasant and tables are laid well but when full it seems very cramped. The food looks very good on the menu but once you have the pleasure in tasting the goods it is a bit disappointing. Expensive for what you get but if you ask for the lobster well what do you expect! I haven't been there... More

Freezing cold in restaurant, food just really average and bland. Not hard to do a decent burger (just dry and unappetising) and decent steak (half of it was soooo chewy it just wasn't edible). Gluttons for punishment (excuse the pun) had a dessert and creme brûlée was separated under a rubbery topping - almost inedible. Banoffee pie distinctly average again.... More

A very relaxed and unstuffy place. Not pretentious but welcoming and a very nice venue for good food, especially fish and steak. 8 of us visited Carey's last night and all of us were pleased with the result. We will certainly come here again.
