Good menu, good coffee, good food, good service, lots of tables - best place for lunch I have tried in Rye, I may not try anywhere else now I've found the Apothecary.

Popped in here on a recent day out in rye. Having never been before and a lot of choice of tea rooms in rye this one caught our eye. It's based over three floors that seem to have been different houses in the past, it's decoration is very unusual but very nice and cosy. The food is fresh and also... More

I regularly pop in here when shopping in Rye. The coffee is excellent with a choice of hot or cold milk. Always a good selection of cakes and savoury options. Very laid back atmosphere, a good place to unwind. The service is always good, and the cafe clean

We often come to the Apothecary ealy on a Sunday morning for toast. Yup, toast. Huge slices of granary bread with butter and (oh yum!) marmite - or jam, or marmalade, etc. as takes your fancy. Always the same laid-back place - please don't be in a rush - and it's just lovely - full of atmosphere over 3 split... More

Asked if we wanted hot or cold milk without prompting! Beans are a high Continental roast, didn't see a choice but maybe they vary from day to day, and strength admirable. Lovely laidback atmosphere, good mix of upright tables and squashy sofas, plenty of reading material. Oh, and the carrot cake is wonderful. Ignore the fact that it's served in... More

We just stopped here for a cappucino and espresso and we loved the coffee and the atmosphere. Relaxed and comfortable!

We popped in for breakfast today and admittedly, I have a cold and this makes me quite crotchetty. I thought the atmosphere very pleasant, the service excellent and our food was really nice - a bacon butty and a toasted teacake. A bit slow to arrive but fine. However, if you are thinking of visiting on a warm summer's day,... More

The staff are delightful. It's quirky, but perhaps predictable. Cake was delicious, coffee fine. Cream tea is a bargain for less than £6 you get 2 scones and loads of clotted cream.

Amazing for a spot of breakfast or a light lunch! Coffee is great and I recommend the quiche! Great value for money and I would return anytime I'm in Rye!
