The pub is on the steps just beneath the ramparts of the castle tower at the south east corner of Rye’s citadel. It’s a tremendously romantic setting. In the warmer months, the Ypres benefits from having the its large garden with outside bar, with views across the Romney Marsh and its rivers. In the winter, the low beamed interior and open log fire make it a warm and inviting place to hide away.

The pub is in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide and offer the largest selection of real ales and local ciders in Rye. The focus is on Sussex and Kentish breweries local to us. Our house lager is Rothaus Pils, brewed in the Black Forest in Germany. Our chef combines brilliantly executed pub classics with more inventive dishes.

The pub is open from noon until late. Food is served 12-3pm and 6-9pm. Reservations with instant confirmation can be made using the Opentable form below:
