“Not just fish...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had soup to start and mussels as the main meal. The mussels were cooked to perfection and the service was good. I heard an older couple say that they travel down to Rye just to have the local lamb at Carey's. The restaurant was lovely and bright with local artist's pictures on the walls.

“Unhelpful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

When we looked at the restaurant at lunchtime, there were people inside but the doors were locked so we could not go in to book. We tried to look at their website but they must be the last restaurant in England who don't have a website! When we returned in the evening, they were closed. There is nothing in the window showing opening hours or days. Are they being deliberately unhelpful?

“A good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Visited with the lady friend and had a very good lunch with friendly service from an Irish young lady.
Produce was fresh and prices are reasonable too.
Was also informed about nutcrackers from a gentleman at an adjoining table who appeared to be a collector of these implements.
Will definitively go back there again and NOT to the Fish café anymore who lately have gone from bad to worse.

“Fab food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Lovely setting, nice surroundings and absolutely lovely steaks, amazing French fries and one of the best burgers my friend has ever had. Staff could be a little more friendly and alert, but overall - fab.
