The inn is wonderfully located near the castle in Rye. We had dinner there. I had a chicken caesar salad, which was ok. My girlfriend took the vegetarian pasta and was very happy about the choice. Prices are good and atmosphere is nice.

Went there on a sunny afternoon, had a couple of beers in the garden. Beautiful. We came back during the evening for dinner and the staff managed to get us in though it was fully booked. Very friendly!

A 17th century inn on the steps down from Rye's castle, after which it was named. The biggest beer garden in Rye. Great food. The best beer selection in town.
