Small cafe but very well worth going in. Food to die for and the staff were truly lovely. They couldn't do enough for you. A little surprised that they allowed dogs in though. I am a dog lover but not in a cafe please. When...More

Stumbled across this place whilst on route back from Winchelsea to Rye. There is a great snack-type menu with variety of veggie options. We arrived at peak lunchtime and just about got a table indoors. The waitress told us it would be about 30min wait,...More

When we eventually got our food it was absolutely delicious but unfortunately we had to wait over half an hour for it with only 4 other people in the cafe! Not good value for money though, £6 for a light breakfast doesn't even include a...More

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!
