The West House

The Three Chimneys

– 15 minutes drive 7.6 miles

Famous old pub  that if you mention you have visited the gardens of Sissinghurst the next question is “did you go to TheThree Chimneys”.

The Standard Inn

Easily miss this charming little Inn as you walk down Rye high street,smallbut tasty menu, not possible to book, pot luck but usually do not have to wait too long for a table, sensibly priced.

The Mint, Rye TN31 7EN

The Globe Inn

– 30 minutes 12 miles

An Inn without a counter, more of a display of scrumptious delights tempting you before you have even got the menu. Can only book if large numbers so either be patient or go early or late, worth the wait.
