Loved the selection of real ales, all gravity fed from stillage behind the bar. Not expensive. Large selection of real cider poured from glass flagons. Quirky building that was once a public convenience apparently. Looking forward to our next visit

Great little place for a few relaxing drinks. Excellent selection of mostly local drinks including beer, cider, gins etc.. Shame I don’t live closer!

We visited four times and loved the fabulous friendly atmosphere and great selection of drinks. Cannot recommend this place enough.

This CAMRA rated pub serves an excellent selection of well kept cask ales in a small eclectic building in the centre of Rye. Well worth a visit - or even two! Great table service from attentive staff. Recommended.

This is a place to drink good beer, good cider or good gin. If you like any of the above, then this is the place for you. Wine is available, but pretty limited. It is a quirky venue, with a good atmosphere and the staff...are very friendly and welcoming. There is some outdoor seating where you can watch the world go by. Food is limited to pork pies and scotch eggs and the like, the scotch eggs we had were excellent. Will visit again when next in Rye.More

We went on a busy summer Saturday afternoon and whilst it looked like every seat was taken they managed to find us some seats outside. Really tasty drinks and friendly, welcoming staff. We were offered an umbrella when it threatened to rain which was a...nice touch.More

Delicious beers and lively atmosphere. The landlord is hilarious and informative. Wide range of beers, ciders and ales. A must visit in rye.

Didn't try the food - but it looked great... Did turn up late on a busy night and was found a place, presented with a beer menu, asked if all was OK and was served with a glorious nightcap just before closing time. As the...call for last orders rang out I saw the landlord begin a tour around all the tables asking whether customers wanted one final pint before bedtime. Very much my kind of pub.More

What more can you ask for a good range of local beers/ciders, knowledgeable staff and an interesting place to sit. Scotch egg was also very good.

No, I don’t believe you can book a table. It is essentially a bar that does simple nibbles to have with beer.
