While the staff were absolutely lovely, and obviously dealing with a nightmarish shift as well as they could, I can only think that there is a serious management problem currently at The Rye.
The system for ordering drinks was absolutely not working, first from a faulty app and then from overworked staff. We waited close to an hour for 3 beers. The pub manager should absolutely re-think how they deal with reasonably busy nights, probably get rid of this faulty app and look into getting a better pub wifi.
It was a real shame because the garden is lovely and the pub itself is very nice. The chips and snacks were good, as is the drinks selection.
The best experience I’ve had post pandemic in a pub.
The staff were enthusiastic, attentive and we were never without a beer for more than a couple of minutes. A much better experience than I’ve had recently with using Apps to order. Small service charge , which I was not made aware of , but ultimately was happy enough to pay.
An excellent evening.
Really enjoyed our dinner at the Rye yesterday evening. Good vibes in the garden and the food was great too. We had the fish and chips and the two sharer platters - the fish was beautifully cooked - super soft. Our bill was a pretty reasonable price. We will definitely come back/ recommend
You should hire more employees and not make 7 person try to serve 500 people! Poor waiters were running all over and trying to explain everyone why their drinks and food didn’t come in 50 minutes which was not their fault AT ALL. You don’t have the right to put people in that stress, not to mention that we were 6 people at the table and all of us had a bad experience and probably not going to your pub again. Make better management choices.
Nice atmosphere terrible ordering experience salvaged by great staff
Didn't eat. Just had a couple of drinks. Service excellent, but instead of two lagers we received a lager and a cider. Drank anyway :)
Great family friendly pub with tasty food. Service is good and the outside space is fantastic
We enjoyed an evening in the late sunshine eating chips and drinking wine outside. As it was a sunny Saturday evening, we expected it to be busy. The service was excellent nonetheless and we enjoyed a lively evening. Highly recommended 👌
The staff were ok, not particularly warm or friendly but not actually rude. I'd probably say the same about the food. It took a while to arrive and was over-priced. Avoid the macaroni cheese bites unless you like dry pasta. They could not offer any kind of side salad which, on top of the quality of the food, made me think they don't make it from scratch. I wouldn't eat there again although the wine was nice. Service was included but I wouldn't have paid it. Over-priced rubbish.
The service here was good and attentive. The food was okay but not world shattering. My wife had a nice burger and I had a vegetarian curry. We ate there on a weekday lunchtime and there were very few people. Nice garden.
Booked for dining at 7pm and arrived and was seated knowing that we were there to eat, only to check the menu on the app everything was out of stock, except a vegan burger.
Firstly, why were we not told this as we arrived, and secondly why was there nothing available? I understand it was a bank holiday and the weather was nice but we knew it was a bank holiday and that the weather would be nice, good management would have prepped for this. I understand if the odd item isn’t available but I have never been to a restaurant where nothing is available!
Poor show, we had to leave, will think twice before booking again
Hi, I completely understand your frustration. We did experience a very busy weekend, more so than expected, however this does not justify your grievances. We did unfortunately run out of a lot of things nearing the close of the evening. We have taken your feedback and the weekend into consideration and we will be better prepared for next time. Hopefully you could try give us another chance in the future. All the best, Team Rye
Terrible customer service - the guy working must have been stressed out and decided to take it out on the customers.
Hi Wamz, Very sorry to hear you had a bad time with us. It was a very busy bank holiday weekend but that doesn't excuse any rudeness you may have experienced. We genuinely have a very nice team here. I really hope this was a one off situation. Please could you contact us so we can have a little more detail on the situation. 020 7639 5397 or email. Take care, Team Rye
Service was extremely poor! Food took 50 minutes to come, potatoes were rock hard.
Hi, SolL Sorry to hear you had a less than adequate experience with us. We did have quite a busy day but that doesn't excuse slow service or poor quality food. I appreciate your honestly and this feedback will be used to assess our standards and help improve our service. Please feel free to contact us to go into more detail. Take care, Team Rye
Great place for outdoor dining experience. Staff are lovely

Hi Catat, What a wonderful review! Glad you had a great time. Hope to see you soon, Team Rye
Enjoyed having drinks here, although the online menu showed a number of alcohol free options including cocktails which weren't available.
Thank you for the positive review. Those items in question are our new summer serves. Unfortunately they weren't quite up and running at the time but they are ready now. Hope you can come back and give them a go. Take care, Team Rye
DO NOT EAT HERE! Great venue for drinks and nice atmosphere, but went here for food yesterday and it was awful. I ordered a club chicken sandwich and they served me it with mouldy bread. It wasn’t a busy lunchtime sitting either - there really is no excuse. Great for drinks and will come back here for that but would never eat here again!!!
Hi Alex, Very sorry to hear you had such a bad experience with us. It's a shame that we have left this negative impression and that you feel you wouldn't eat here again. I've never known this to happen before and really hope that this was purely a very unfortunate one off situation. All the best, Team Rye
The food was really terrible. The garden could be nice in fair weather but probably a better place just for drinks.
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the food. We have just changed the menu and are so far getting a lot of positive feedback. It's a shame you didn't feel the same. Glad you you saw the potential in our garden, I hope you can try us again in the future. All the best, Team Rye
Went for a Sunday roast. Food was delicious, and despite the rain we were kept dry with the a sheltered outdoor table.
Hi foodie, Glad you had a great experience with us. All the best, Team Rye

A brilliant Sunday afternoon spent at the Rye. I have had many Sunday roasts at pubs in London and I can safely say that this one was the best. The new garden is perfect for all times of year and had a vibrant and lovely atmosphere
Hi Gianni, So pleased to hear you had a wonderful time. I hope we see you again very soon. Have a great day, Team Rye
Lovely day out for mums 75th. We were treated like Kings and queens, although I expect everyone there felt the same. Even though it was super busy the staff and chefs rose to the challenge. Food sublime and well presented.
Thank you for the lovely comment and great rating. Have a fantastic day, Team Rye
We had a lovely visit here. Started with coffees and drinks, and got some snacks to keep us going. The staff were super attentive, the bill was really reasonable. Lovely heaters to keep us warm! Will definitely be coming back here.
