What your breakfast could look like when you stay in Rye

The festival always sees an increase in visitor numbers so well done to those who booked their accommodation early. Don’t tell the scallops but they are also available before and after the dates of the festival.

Rye in the Winter is a delight with life music in many if the lovely small pubs where the locals will always make you feel welcome. With the Rye Christmas festival little more than pleasant memories Rye high street still retains the character and charm of a medieval town. Sea food has always featured well in our restaurants and especially so at this time of year.
