This cafe/restaurant is staffed with young people with learning difficulties along with an able bodied helping hand. Katie our waitress was very obliging and very anxious to please and despite a slight variation of my wife's order compared with the menu Katie rose to the challenge most successfully. Our freshly cooked order was delivered promptly and well presented. The quality... More

The Mariners is in a great town and did some excellent food for our visit; the standard menu is quotidian cafe fare you'll find up and down shore towns - sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cream teas, etc. etc. The daily specials come into their own - I had home made gammon, leek and mushroom pie, and the shortcrust pastry was beautiful...

We were asked to sit at a table in a corner despite having to navigate with a push chair in tight spaces. Asked for a high chair and then got one ourselves, moving tables in the process to one that was able to fit a high chair. No help or assistance from staff, I asked if there was somewhere safe...

Friendly staff and excellent service. Definitely worth a visit. The tea hot pot of tea was very welcome after a morning scouring the antique shops.

Diner style restaurant. Good food - jacket potato, omelette and scampi for the child. Slow service (35' wait for the food) and eggs were a bit runny, all fine for the rest. Mains, coffee and drinks for three - £25

I adore this little cafe on Rye high street. I travel from Hastings after moving from Rye just to come here. Everyone is so friendly and as i've said before, I love the way it is ran. Today they had the fire going which made for a very cozy feel! Today me and my partner has a soup each to... More

Been here a few times now and we have always had a great welcome you get. Food is ok but the prices reflect this well worth a visit

We, group of 5 adults, 2 2yr olds & a newborn, stumbled across here on route to the castle. The cooked breakfasts are delicious, not greasy and tasted of good quality. Excellent value for money. We had a double buggy with us and a single and the staff were really accommodating in fitting us all in. Highly recommend popping in... More

The food is cooked beautifully. Substantial portions of food, reasonably priced. The fish is trimmed and cleaned properly and the batter is light. The staff were polite and efficient.

A delight to spend a relaxing interlude in a sightseeing day and to discover that this establishment is being staffed by those with learning difficulties who were a joy to talk with. They all appeared to be enjoying their work and their own unhurried approach rubs off on the clientele. Whilst we only stopped for tea and cake other meals... More
