Visited this lovely pub/hotel/restaurant on a spa weekend in the lovely village of Rye. Can easily be missed during dark evening hours as the main front does not face the road. Based on the reviews here in we went with high expectations. And we were not disappointed. Entering the pub was like going back in time. The interior really has to be seen to understand the feeling. The fire was roaring in the hearth and initial sight was a little smokey but in a pleasant way. Landlord was pleasant with quick service at the Bar, there again it was not really busy. The food menu was limited but, as they state, it is all home cooked and fresh. Talking of food, wow, really nice. I had a Steak and Guinness pie with dauphinois potatoes and the wife had a steak and mushroom pudding again with dauphinois potatoes. Vegetable we're cauliflower cheese, broccoli spears and a sweed/carrot mix. Really tasty food, a little extra gravy would have been nice but that's me being fussy...lol. It was a really relaxing atmosphere in the restaurant, at no time did I feel rushed thus stayed to enjoy another pint. Would love to return in the summer season to sample the delights again and see if the atmosphere is any different. If I was to be a little critical then the toilets, men's, require a bit of love and attention to sort out a damp issue, but this did not ruin my meal and enjoyment in the restaurant. Would give it 4 and a half stars if I could. You will not be disappointed.
