Popped in for a cuppa after a wander around Rye. Good choice of tea and coffee. We sat in the garden as we visited with our dog and they're allowed inside so only fair weather visits if you take your 4 legged friend.

Would recommend booking just to be certain. We were 'walk-ins' on a lovely sunny day - it was busy, but we got a table just as people were leaving, otherwise would probably have had to wait.
