A 17th CENTURY PUB AND BEER GARDEN IN THE ANCIENT TOWN OF RYE
YPRES CASTLE INN, GUNGARDEN, RYE, TN31 7HH
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 beer garden is the focus, with its outside bar and views across the marsh and its rivers. In the winter, the pub’s low beamed interior and open log fire make it a warm and inviting place to hide away.
We offer the largest selection of real ales and local ciders in Rye. The focus is on local Sussex and Kentish breweries. Our draught lagers are both from independent German breweries: Oechsner Vier from a small town in Bavaria and Rothaus Pils from the Black Forest. We’ve got great food for you too: our chef combines brilliantly executed pub classics with more inventive dishes.
The pub is open from noon until late. Food is served between 12-3 and 6-9 pm Monday to Friday and throughout the day (12-9 pm) at weekends. Reservations with instant confirmation can be made using the Opentable form below. You’ll be seated inside the pub: tables in the beer garden can’t be reserved.
