INDEPENDENT PUB & BEER GARDEN IN THE ANCIENT TOWN OF RYE, SUSSEX
DRAUGHT BEER & CIDER TAKEAWAYS & DELIVERIES WILL CONTINUE WHILE THE PUB REMAINS CLOSED! CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS!COVID-19 UPDATE: When the current lockdown ends, Sussex will be in Tier 2 of Covid restrictions. This means pubs can only re-open if they operate entirely as restaurants.I’m proud of our food, but I believe that pubs sacrifice their soul when they become restaurants. As such, the doors will remain closed for now.Have no fear: the Ypres Castle Inn will be back with bells on in spring, when visiting (and running) pubs can be a joyous thing once more!
The Ypres Castle Inn is a place for calm, contemplative souls to rest and be thankful. It’s hidden away on a flight of steps just beneath the ramparts of the castle itself, at the south east corner of Rye’s old town. It’s a tremendously romantic setting. In the warmer months the beer garden is idyllic, with its views across the marsh and the River Rother. In the winter, the low beamed interior and log fire make it a warm and inviting place to hide away. The focus is on the best craft beer, local cider and low intervention wines.
The pub is best reached by walking up to Church Square and then down behind the castle – ignore the route Googlemaps suggests! If you’re driving, park in one of Rye’s many public carparks and walk here.
