Very popular family Italian restaurant in Rye with an extensive menu. Can handle sizable parties but is large enough for couples to find a romantic corner too. Even on a busy day they will try and squeeze you in. The owners are really friendly and it’s always a good experience here.

Great decor, good food, always busy but never uncomfortable. One Seashells guest said it was one of the best pub they’d ever been to. Covered garden too.

When it was The Ambrette it was the most interesting restaurant in Rye. Top quality local produce cooked in indian flavors. A new look and name in the same tradition from award winning chefs and restaurateurs.

Sightseeing

Music fans might like to visit setting for David Bowie’s Ashes To Ashes video. Interesting architecture and a tiny shed church with free tea and biscuits to help yourself to. Also interesting WWII embedded concrete lookout tower and underground bunkers to explore just on Toot Rock.

Britain’s only desert, this spectacular landscape is a must visit. The mini railway that goes along the Romney Marsh Coast ends here (it was opened by Laurel & Hardy). Film maker Derek Jarman’s famous shingle garden and house is here. The power station looks immense at night and there are lots of local artists studios, fishmongers and interesting private houses.

Home to our other house, Pebbles Rye on social, Winchelsea Beach is a beautiful, less visited stretch of coast that fronts the Rye Nature Reserve. Both are well worth a visit and ideal for cycling, walking or bird watching.

Shops

This non branded Waterstones bookshop made the news when it opened as a new way for the larger chain to sell books in small towns. It’s is well stocked and it’s been a welcome addition. There’s also a very interesting second hand shop called Rare Books round the corner in Lion Street.
