After scanning the net for an anniversary surprise B&B for my wife within a 2 hour drive from London, I stumbled across Peace and Plenty. After several emails to Colleen and Bob our date was penned. Colleen had recommended the Rose room.
With a huge four poster bed, a Victorian roll top bath and a fireplace (great for the middle of winter), not to mention large flat screen mounted on the wall it all sounded to good to be true. Aha, the restaurant/bar was closed as our date fell on a Tuesday. But,no problem says Colleen there are restaurants down the road or if I would like, they can set up a table in our room and Bob the chef will prepare us a special meal if I am happy to make our selection 24 hours ahead of our arrival, which is fair, we were the only guests in-house. They could also provide us with any beer/wine/champagne as they have a full licence.
After receiving 2 gorgeous menus via email I decided that yes please we will dine in by the fire. The fillet steaks (A delicious tower of delight) with the cheese board and chocolate & walnut brownie with cream for the follow up sounded like a bit of us. The meals turned out even better than the drool-worthy menu description, which was the icing on the cake.
The cherry on the icing on the cake had to have been breakfast with the long list of options and the offer of fresh grapefruit and a nice assortment of real juices, not forgetting the real coffees from a real machine (no instant here). Full English and the eggs Benedict served in the cosy dining room next to yet another fireplace was the perfect start to our day exploring Rye and nearby Hastings.
If you are looking for something special in a B&B, this is the place. There will not be any anniversary surprise next year, we have already decided where we are going. See you on the same date 2014 Bob and Colleen, if not before!
