At the time of my visit last month the pub was operating a garden only policy due to Covid 19, the inside has since reopened.
Despite that disappointment the weather was still good and the beer even better, Howling Hops Top Buzzer on keg and Three Legs Oatmeal Stout on cask. The garden was full and despite being busy landlord Jeff managed to take time for a chat. While I can't rate the pub ambiance the garden experience was positive.

A traditional style pub with low ceilings, boarded floors and a quarry tiled floor at the rear and cream painted walls. The bar area had a display of hops along the pot shelf and there were six handpumps, with five in use. We went for the Three Legs IPA and the Rother Valley Level Best, both of which were in excellent condition. The pub looked to be food led, with bookings for tables over the phone as we ordered our beers. The manager was friendly and chatty and told us that Paul McCartney used to pop in on a Sunday for lunch and that his daughter Heather McCartney still frequents the pub, as she lives nearby.

A weather- boarded pub on the terraced slopes of Rye Citadel below the eponymous Castle.My previous visits were back in the seventies and eighties,when it sold Fremlins and boasted a parrot and a grumpy Landlord. Since late last year,it has been under the ownership of Jeffrey Bell, aka 'Stonch', the original Beer Blogger.
On our visit at lunchtime on a grey March Saturday we found a pub busy with drinkers and diners, and a good number of dogs, including our own.My memory for interior decoration isn't perfect,but it looks as if it has had a tasteful lick of paint since John Bonser's visit.We sat in a little side room behind the bar,decorated with local views.
On the bar were 6 hand pumps, two selling Kent Ciders.Of the cask beers,all from Kent or Sussex,we enjoyed an excellent Black Pale Ale from Rother Valley and a moreish hop forward session pale from Old Dairy.Craft keg beers are also offered,together with artisanal gins and whiskies.The meals, equally seemed to favour local sourcing-scallops were on the specials list- and were competitively priced for the location.
The grim weather attracted few customers into the impressive gardens, with views over the lower reaches of the town and across the marshes:however on a sunny day they would be packed.Yes,good pub.
