Description: We are a family run business, set in the tranquil setting of Rye Harbour, situated opposite the Lifeboat house. We are adjacent to the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and River Rother and a short stroll from the beach.We are open 364 days a year (take Christmas day off and cook at home instead!), and are open from 9am til 3ish!We take pride in using only the finest ingredients,locally sourced wherever possible,free range,cook every order from fresh and only serve door-stops of the best bread!We are bike friendly, dog friendly,child friendly and customers with specific diets are welcome to bring their own food (we don't cater specifically for gluten free etc,yet).There is loads and loads of FREE parking,a rarity these days!Please don't park in the Lifeboat bays, if there is a shout you could get boxed in for hours! If there is a shout, please bear with me as the family are all on the crew and there's little staff left to look after all the customers! but you will see the boat in action. Catch us when we're quiet and we can give you a personal tour of the station!Donations to the RNLI are always welcome!

Popped in here with friends for a chat and a bite to eat. Sat outside in the sun. Food was great- ordered sandwiches and chips. Lovely food. Sandwiches- fresh bread like doorsteps! Thoroughly recommended!

A cafe near a free carpark, which has THREE types of gluten free bread for my toast, and happily takes orders that aren't on the main menu -- loved the welcome and the generous, well done food that was on offer

wide range of foods and drinks to suit all

We dropped in here after a walk around the nature reserve. Incredibly surprised to find this gem of a cafe. Very substantial and tasty sandwiches/wraps were enjoyed by all. We will be back!

I regularly go to Rye Harbour walking around the Nature Reserve. This cafe has become a regular haunt for me and some of my friends.
This is because it is one of the nicest friendly customer focused cafe's I've ever been in.
Nothing is too much trouble, ok, it's not overly pretty and pristine, but it provides excellent food and drink, what more do you need when you're enjoying a nice walk in a lovely part of the world.
If you're in the area, and peckish, its well worth a visit.

Bosun's Bite serves delicious food. The place says 'welcome as do the busy friendly staff. There is seating both inside and outside, so make yourself at home while you wait. The wait is truly worthwhile because everything is freshly cooked. There are newspapers to read and pictures for sale on the walls. If you are a people watcher, the contented faces of departing diners will increase your anticipation. Breakfast is a challenge. It will set you up for the rest of the day and the memory of its delights will make you smile. You owe it to yourself to visit the dog friendly Bosun's Bite in Rye Harbour
