Beautiful stay in Rye.

Stayed at the Standard overnight which has had an excellent renovation.The steak and ale pie was probably the best I've ever had. Breakfast was excellent and Raj the co-owner was very friendly would definitely recommend staying here.

Three of us ate in the Standard on a Tuesday evening. It's probably the best of the 'proper' pubs in Rye since it was taken over by new people and completely refurbished. There is a pleasant ambience to the place and the staff are welcoming and efficient. My battered cod, chips and peas (£10.50) were very good.

Stopped off here for a drink on our way for a meal. Would probably eaten here if we had not already booked somewhere else. There are couple of more unusual beers on tap, I had a Belgium beer that was superb. Unfortunately cannot remember the name, think it began with A. The atmosphere was laid back and seemed like a...

Good food and very friendly staff. The salt marsh lamb was particularly good. Bit dark but traditional. very enjoyable meal.

The Standard is possibly the friendliest pub in Rye. But the staff are not only charming, but knowledgeable and efficient. In the restaurant at the rear of the pub you'll be treated to the freshest, seasonal, local produce (salt marsh lamb, Rye Bay scallops, etc.) cooked with care and passion. Re-furbed late last year, the pub can now show off... More

Visited the Standard Inn for an evening meal whilst staying elsewhere in Rye. You can't book a table (unless you're a large party) so we arrived quite early, before 7pm. It's obviously a popular pub with the locals but, even though you eat at tables in the bar area, you don't feel uncomfortable as there are enough people dining not... More

We chose this pub on a wet bank holiday evening when others had stopped serving food. From the outside, it looks like a local drinkers' pub with not a lot of room to eat but inside is surprisingly spacious. Food and beer wonderful, staff - and locals - very friendly (which we found to be true of Rye in general).... More

We visited this pub for lunch on Bank Holiday Monday. We were told that there was a 30 minute wait for food, which was fine as we were there to enjoy a relaxed lunch. Indeed it was relaxed as the food took 60 minutes to arrive, but was well worth the wait. I think the kitchen must have been backed... More

After a slightly arduous (thanks to hoards of selfish bikers) journey to East Grinstead and back to visit a friend in hospital we were too knackered to cook so popped in to the Standard in the hope of a bite to eat. We thought it might be busy and possibly even sold out as it was the end of a... More

We called in one evening without booking and although fairly busy, were able to get a table straight away. The staff were friendly and helpful and the Standard had a good atmosphere. There was quite a long wait for food, but when it arrived it was very good and well presented. I would have no hesitation about visiting again.
