Lovely looking pub but more gastro than pub. Amazing chicken wings to start with fish and chips to follow. Nice fresh food.

The best homemade chicken pie! Great atmosphere, gets busy so book ahead! We had a cost corner table by the fire! Perfect for a cold, rainy November day!

Lovely food, great service, cosy pub. We were welcomed and looked after very well. The pie is particularly good as is the Romney Marsh lamb.

I was recommended the Standard by several people in Rye. Great place full of atmosphere with exposed brick walls, beams and pillars where walls have been removed to make a bigger space.

We finally discovered The Spaniards Inn in Rye. It's been opened 2 years now after a refurb. Really lovely cosy pub with friendly staff and gorgeous food. We had scallops to start, just delicious! Then I had a pumpkin ravioli and he the rump of lamb. I nicked a bit of the crunchy polenta cake, lovely! Would definitely visit again.

We were in Rye the weekend just gone and hadn't fully appreciated how busy the town would be this weekend with the bonfire celebrations. The Standard Inn was recommended to us by Toby at the Rye Windmill B&B and it couldn't have been more perfect for an evening pub meal, especially useful was you didn't need to book to eat... More
