Great as we were undercover with heating. Lovely staff and the food was delicious.
Great relaxed pub to hang out with your friends and eat tasty food. Very helpful staff and a general positivity in the air!
Basic menu but nice outdoor seating and friendly staff.
Very good food. Nice environment t in the beer garden at the back. Not too much noise.
Hi Maddie, Thank you for leaving a review, we really appreciate the feedback! Have a great day, See you again soon. Team Rye
Had a great Sunday Roast with a couple of pints of Neck Oil. sat outside and heaters kept us warm and happy till early evening.
Best vegan roast ever! Just a shame they ran out by the time my friend decided to order. Great vibes, good service and good food. Steer away from the vegan platter though - not worth it.
Excellent back garden. Food was good. Drinks were good.
Hi Mike, Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us at the Rye. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Team Rye

Afternoon, Thanks for the review, its great to hear you had a fabulous time with us at the Rye. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Many thanks, Team Rye.
I’ve lived near the Rue for 17 years and always enjoyed my experiences there. Sadly it was down to poor food that has led me to writing this review. We ordered a burger and chicken club sandwich, standard pub lunch menu features and both were badly done. The chicken club in particular, stale cheap bread, old and overcooked chicken and cheap bacon. I’m sorry to share this but hopefully it will encourage The Rye to take a look at its food in more detail.
Afternoon, We are really sorry to hear you had a bad experience on your visit. Our entire menu is prepared daily and all meals are cooked from fresh, ready to serve. We will be looking into what may have happened with your food on the day. Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. Look forward to see you again soon. Team Rye
Was exposed to the rain outside, didn’t get a drink for 35 minutes and closed at 10pm, but it was a good atmosphere and food was good
Good Afternoon Sem, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry your table was exposed to the rain as not all of our tables are sheltered. when you next book with us please leave a note and we will do our best to provide you with a table with cover and heating. We are also sorry to hear you had to wait a little longer than usual for your drinks to arrive. Thanks for your feedback. Team Rye
Didn’t eat - drink only. Very good, helpful staff. We’d come back.
Good Afternoon Paul, Thank you for your feedback. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Have a great day, Team Rye.
Good food, great, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere
Hi Gracie, Thank you for leaving a review, its always nice to hear our customers are have a great time! Have a great day! Team Rye.
Great place, location & wide range of drinks selection as well as food
My friend’s food arrived several minutes after mine, we had to ask for it. Then there was something missing. We were not charged for this and were given chips free so this made up for it .
Hi there Patricia, We are sorry to hear your food arrived at different times, we are looking into why this was the case. Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. Team Rye
Kids burger hard, Curry? enough said. Sunday roast carrot and 1\4 cabbage done on griddle.Long wait for food and drinks
Hi Linda, Thank you for your feedback, sorry you had to wait a little longer than usual for your drinks and food. Your feedback is much appreciated. Team Rye
On the expensive side. And trouble ordering with the WiFi/signal black spot. But otherwise great.
Afternoon Tom, Sorry you had trouble with using the app through our WiFi service. We have been having some issues with the signal strength which we are currently looking into. Look forward to seeing you again. Team Rye.
So lovely to be back at the pub with the friends and the staff were great - in particular allowing us leeway on the booking time which was a bonus.
Great brunch - quiet calm location with very tasty food and friendly staff. Will be back for another visit.
Hi Gustav, Very much appreciate your kind words and high rating. Looking forward to your next visit, All the best, The Rye
Usually love this place but for some reason just had a really bad experience on this day. The staff were unattentive, food was cold and our order didn't get accepted for 15 minutes so we were just sat waiting for a drink. Understand that it's not the easiest time but feel like they should make a little bit more effort.
Just great! Lovely garden, staff and food!
Hi OliverE, Thank you very much for your kind words. All the best, The Rye
Nice place and really good service. Really recommend
Quite a few problems with ordering due to poor WiFi connection. Staff insistent we order via app despite everyone on our table not being able to access the app properly.
Food ok. Just average.
Hi SaraF, Sorry to hear you had a few troubles with ordering online. We have been encouraging the use of online orders as it is at present still the safest way to place an order. We are taking in account the issues that some guests have had with it and are trying our best to be as flexible and helpful as possible. All the best, The Rye
Great new garden space. The drink orders came nice and quick, and the app worked well and the staff were helpful.. loved it. Can't wait to spend longer time there.
The back of the pub has been done up really nicely and had excellent spaces in sun or shade.
Hi LexieF, We have recently had a refurbishment and we are very excited about the results. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, The Rye
Very nice, good service, but £6.15 a pint? Bit much.
Hi andynic, Thank you for the nice rating. We do have a selection of different beverages ranging from the standard to the more premium. We do try to cater for many different preferences. I hope next time there could be something more to your liking. All the best, The Rye
Good quality, tasty and reasonably priced food. Good choice too. Service good, but need to be more on it with table service for drinks.
Hi JamesW, Thanks for the feedback, all comments help us improve our service. Glad you had a good time. All the best, The Rye
Wonderful to be back with you - thanks
Good Afternoon, Likewise, its wonderful to have you back too! Thanks for your review, see you soon! Team Rye.
Nice pub , Shame the food is still really bland :/
Hi Lauren, Thanks for the 4 stars. We are constantly reviewing our menu and from time to time we bring out a fresh menu and specials. Hopefully something will take your fancy in the future. Regards, The Rye
Amazing service and a great beer garden. They took great care with social distancing and covid guidelines. Can’t wait to go again
Hi ConnorF, Great to hear you had a fab time. We can't wait to see you again. Very happy to hear you feel safe and secure. All the best, The Rye
Staff all very friendly, courteous & helpful. However it was booked for a 90 min lunch break and the first 45 mins were spent TRYING & failing to get onto wifi to order. In the end a pencil & paper was used - but this delayed everything and meant we couldn’t relax nor chat whilst trying to load things on our phones. This spoiled our time.
The food was very good (pie was fab!) but plates were not heated... they were stone cold (& it was a cold day). It meant food was colder... plates should be heated for hot food.
The staff took too long to serve desert (ordered at the beginning) which arrived 5 mins before we had to leave. It was the most delicious brownie ever though.
Heaters and undercover helped but still chilly in coats. It’s a lovely area though and everywhere inside very clean.
I appreciate it’s all a new system but wifi needs sorting or use people to take orders.
Hi Juliet, Thank you for all the feedback. We are experiencing a few teething problems with the new systems and are always looking at ways to improve our service. I'm glad you enjoyed the food and hope on your next visit everything will on point. Kind regards, The Rye
Lovely place, they have really adapted the area for covid nicely.
Hi Benj, 5 stars, fantastic! Very happy to hear you feel safe and secure with us. Kind regards, The Rye
Lovely pub! Food was made fresh to order which meant it took a bit longer, but well worth the wait. Staff were so friendly and accommodating when we wanted to move tables and went out of their way to make our experience enjoyable. Will be back soon!
Hi KateE, We appreciate your kind words and lovely review. Looking forward to your next visit. All the best, The Rye
Love it here! Never had a bad meal at The Rye. We went for dinner & drinks on the first day they re-opened and had a great experience. The katsu curry was so tasty! Highly recommend :)
