Mariners is run by a trust for adults with learning difficulties which has to be worth supporting. Lunch was excellent, big portions, and very reasonable and the service was brilliant. It seemed very popular so worth getting there before 12.30 for lunch.

Excellent food and friendly service. Great to realise once you sit down that your money is supporting young adults with learning difficulties to be independent.

We fancied a cup of tea and saw the Mariners, which seemed nice and clean, so we thought we'd give it a try. I'm so glad we did. We had a pot of tea for one, a hot chocolate, two crumpets and a toasted tea cake - all for the princely sum of less than £6! It was good quality... More

It is a real pleasure to see an establishment like this in such a prime position. The staff, who have learning difficulties, are great: friendly, hard working and obviously really enjoy their work. We had a lovely chat with our waitress - the sort of conversation that could not be replicated in any other local eating place, and made our... More

We stopped off in Rye for lunch to break up our journey. Just wandering around, came across this restaurant in the high street. It looked fairly busy so we went in, only then realising it was run by a charity. We then became a little nervous, but as we’d already sat down and other diner’s food looked good, we decided... More

This may not have some of the character of older places in Rye, but it has the warmest welcome, good coffee and beautifully prepared fresh good. It's great value and raising funds for a wonderful charity. I'll certainly be coming back
