Places to eat, drink and shop for food

in Rye, Camber Sands and nearby

A few of our favourite eateries...

One of the things we enjoy most about being on holiday is eating out and there are plenty of places to choose from in and around Camber Sands and Rye, so many we cannot include them all. Here are just a few of our recommended places to eat near Camber Sands which have received consistently good feedback from our guests. Camber Sands...

The Owl is our favourite place to stop for a pint of local beer on our way back from the beach with our dog. This welcoming  pub serves delicious home-cooked food including freshly caught local fish and seafood as well as delicious locally sourced meat. It also offers a good choice of vegetarian and vegan options.  The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and they welcome dogs!

The Gallivant restaurant and bistro serves beautiful dishes using ingredients sourced from the local area. They have an excellent selection of local wines too.

Many of our guests have also recommended the Rye Bay Cafe where they have enjoyed a great breakfast. They also serve a very good fish and chips, pies and other bistro staples. The Rye Bay Cafe is also dog friendly. The Dune’s Bar is also popular with many of our guests, especially those with small children. 

Khanz, our local curry restaurant, is also fantastic and very convenient as they deliver to the door. We have used them often and never been disappointed. Rye...

Rye, just three miles away, offers a variety and quality to suit all tastes and occasions – restaurants, pubs, cafés, tearooms and wine bars. Here, and in no particular order, are our favourites:

Webbes Fish Café is very popular serving some of the best seafood in town.

The Landgate Bistro serves delicious meals using locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

Hoof our favourite burger restaurant serves burgers, steaks, fries and freakshakes. All the meat and potatoes are reared/grown on their own farm just four miles away.

The Standard Inn, also dog friendly, is one of the most popular pubs in Rye, good beer and good food (I nearly always have the pie of the day);

The Globe Inn Marsh, just outside the citadel, is a traditional but modern country inn with brilliant food in friendly surroundings. They also welcome dogs.

Other well known venues that will not disappoint are:

The George – great beers and burgers, again dog friendly.

The Ship Inn dog friendly and fab food, fantastic breakfasts.  A great place to enjoy the wine from the local Balfour Winery.

The Ypres Castle Inn – known locally as “The Wipers” this pub is all about the beer. They do not serve hot food but offer tasting boards of locally produced charcuterie and cheeses. They also welcome dogs.

Our favourite tea shops in Rye, but also serving light lunches include Hayden’s, Simon the Pieman, The Cobbles Tea Room and, of course, Knoops for the most delicious hot chocolate you’ve ever had!

It is a very modest cab fare back from Rye. We advise pre-booking and have a number of local cab operators details available for guests.

The fish and chips at The Pilot Inn at Dungeness is praised time and time again by guests as some of the best fish and chips they have ever eaten! This pub is also dog friendly.
