Eating and Drinking

We have jotted down a few local pubs, restaurants and cafes that either we, friends or our guests have enjoyed and would recommend to others

The Red Lion in Brede

Just a mile up the road, in the centre of the village, The Red Lion is a friendly, cosy pub which is equally welcoming to those just wanting a drink or those for a meal.

The Kings Head in Udimore

Under new management, a friendly and good value country pub just a 5 minute drive away.

The Plough in Cock Marling

Just half a mile on from The Kings Head, The Plough is a classic 400 year old pub with a warm atmosphere, offering good food and beer. 

The George in Rye

An historic 1575 building in the middle of the high street, only recently renovated to now be a stunning contemporary hotel, restaurant and bar. 

Webbe’s Fish Cafe in Rye

A cafe downstairs, and stylish restaurant upstairs, Webbe’s is a lovely place to sample Rye’s local fish.

The Gandhi Tandoori in Rye

A widespread favourite indian in the medieval town of Rye.

The Tuscan Kitchen in Rye

Authentic to the core, The Tuscan Kitchen offers a fabulous interesting menu with a huge variety of Italian dishes. The owners are so welcoming, and have created a very relaxed atmosphere in a lovely old building. Just off the high street in Rye. 

The Beach Bistro at The Gallivant Hotel in Camber

Recently refurbished, the New England style bistro is a light and airy space offering an interesting, flavoursome menu, focussed on locally sourced ingredients. Just opposite the dunes at Camber Sands.


Just 5 minutes down the road is Carr Taylor Vineyard, a friendly family run estate.

Not much further away is Sedlescombe Vineyard which claims to be the country’s first organic vineyard. Established in 1979.
