Try the crabs, they taste like fresh from the boat in Rye Harbour and browse through the lovely pieces of art standing or hanging around. Take your time and have a chat with the team and the guests.

Not very welcoming especially with kids, maybe because it’s a “gallery”. A bit overpriced for rye harbour

We had tried to visit before but it was closed. We thought it was average but didn’t live up to our expectations

This is a gallery with a small food offering. The cakes are excellent and very generously sized. They offer a cheese plate and a fish plate at lunch but not sandwiches.

Went in with a small group all having a variety of meals. All well presented and promptly delivered in a very pleasing art gallery cum restaurant. With free tea top ups! I had a cream tea and it was excellent.

Simply the best! 1 cream tea is enough for two to share, might be too much for one person. Staff are lovely, very tasty

We are an art gallery and tea room specialising in local artists and local food. We are on the edge of the Rye Harbour nature reserve, which is a fantastic spot for walking and birding, with a long shingle beach and masses of pools and hides.We have an excellent range of original prints, photographs, textiles,ceramics and 3D pieces often on wildlife/landscape themes, along with a great range of local foods.We make all our own cakes and scones and are proud to serve award-winning Sussex cheeses, locally-sourced smoked mackerel and wonderful fruit juice from orchards nearby. In summer we also have fresh dressed crab and hand-raised pork pies, which we make ourselves on the premises, using pork from local farms.
