Restaurants in Rye

Restaurants in Rye are listed below.  Most restaurants pride themselves with their offer of local produce, some will delight your taste buds with their local wines and beers.

Every restaurant in Rye is well run. Your accommodation provider is a great place to ask about where to eat, they will understand your preferences for formal or relaxed and can help you.

If you have little ones with you then some restaurants are more able to accommodate than others so it may be well to call ahead or to ask your accommodation provider who will also be pleased to offer some guidance. Some of the restaurants offer a take away service and again check before taking it back to your accommodation as some are able to offer additional facilities.

In January we have the Rye Bay Scallops festival when your favourite restaurant may well be offering some special dishes. The Wild boar festival speaks for itself and is very popular.

Next Christmas is well worth booking up as soon as possible as the Rye comes alive at Christmas.
