Steve C left this review about The Pipe Makers Arms

This is certainly the best pub that I discovered in Rye for watching sport and even though only Old Speckled Hen and Greene King IPA were available I would say that this was my favourite pub visited in the area. The barmaid/landlady was nice enough and the OSH was on good form. Alongside some standard lagers and Olde English Cider there was an unused hand pump, so maybe they occasionally have a guest on.

There is a quiet saloon bar on one side of the pub for the serious drinkers and the other side is much larger with a pool table in the centre and a dart board at the back of the pub. On the opposite wall there is a projector screen and the pub shows Sky Sports and Setanta. I tried my hand at one of the two quiz machines, but the questions were ultra difficult indicating that someone had already cleaned them out. At about 18:00 the barman/governor came out and covered the pool table and then moved it to the side as the usual Saturday night live entertainment was being set up. I don't know what it was, but I have a terrible feeling it may have been karaoke.

Out the back of the pub there are a few benches lining the driveway that leads into the pub car park. There is also a small smoking shelter found just next to the car park.

This place is a little rough and ready, but it certainly fills a gap in the Rye pub market and it is great if, like me, you like carousing!
