FANCY A BITE TO EAT?
One of the Cinque Ports, Rye is a market town steeped in history yet full of a diverse collection of attractions for all ages.
The town offers a delightful blend of contemporary shops and dining places as well as a myriad of local landmarks with ancient historical interest.
From the kitchens of fine dining, to a street food shack on the beach, Kyle Tatner has brought his flavour to the Old Forge in Rye to introduce a whole new way of looking at street food and eating out.
They make British food with a classic or modern slant and source ingredients from the local fields, woodlands and waters. They use free range eggs, milk and cream from farms up the road. Serving a selection of local marsh lamb and pork, and fresh fish which landed a few hundred meters from Rye (the gurnard, which tail is on their sign, was caught in Rye Bay).
THE UNION STEAKHOUSE
A friendly steakhouse (fish-lovers and veggies are also catered for) in a stripped-back former pub full of cow-themed artwork. Choose from simple steaks, ribs and burgers or cuts from more special 30-day aged beef.
The wine and beer list includes a unique steak-compatible brew by the local Old Dairy Brewery. And for pudding, the Key Lime pie is pretty amazing.
