The Standard has become our go to for dinner whenever we visit Rye. Their lamb is to die for and the dish changes slightly depending on the season. Always perfectly cooked, never fatty and delicious. My husband has had fish & chips and 2 different pies on our visits and all have been equally tasty. Extensive, reasonably priced drinks menu.... More

We visited the Inn on an early Friday evening with our children (they don't do reservations). We had the Marsh Lamb (which was absolutely superb) and the children had burger and fish and chips from the kids menu. We finished off with an excellent toffee pudding. By 6pm the place was buzzing and staff were attentive with good delivery times... More

Dropped in here on a lightning trip to the town. Tucked away on a nice quiet table at the back of the pleasant bar. Surprisingly was not that busy on this particular holiday weekend. Food is good. Not overpriced. Can't really fault it for a pleasant lunch in a very good location. I had the Hastings Smoked Fish to start... More

A great place to eat wonderful affordable food, especially the Romney marsh lamb. Great local real ale and a good children's menu. Friendly, attentive staff.

We have just enjoyed a delicious burger and fries here which we would heartily recommend but we were extremely disappointed with the service of the waitress who seemed more interested in socialising with some of the locals who had just entered the bar. When she brought our food to the table (which was piping hot) she asked if we needed... More

The food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful, even when rushed off their feet. Great atmosphere. So many restaurants in Rye but we chose the Standard night after night.

On the recommendation of the Jeremy and Tomas at the fantastic Aviemore b&b, I was told to stop off here for food on Friday evening. And they weren't wrong. I hadn't booked but they found me a little table and the menu is small-ish but perfectly formed. I had the 5 scallops for a main course and they were absolutely... More

This is a gorgeous 14th century inn, right in the heart of the beautiful town of Rye. Set on the quaint street, it really is a special find. The pub itself is smallish but cosy with an outdoor courtyard. Lots of quirky features to look at inside. We stayed in the Sandwich room which was very cosy and tastefully furnished,... More

We had such a wonderful evening in the Standard. A lovely pub - simply and beautifully decorated and furnished. Fantastic atmosphere - the service was superb and the food absolutely delicious. The staff were so friendly and helpful and it was very helpful. They don't take booking and it gets very bust so I would recommend that you arrive by... More
