This 17th century pub is hidden away on a flight of steps just beneath the ramparts of Rye Castle, at the south east corner of the 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.
