Description: The George Grill and our bar, The George Tap, are temples of all day dining, serving a modern European menu with a sunny, Mediterranean slant. At the heart of the kitchen is a Josper wood-charcoal grill, where our kitchen team, led by Robert Wright fast-cook seafood just caught from Rye Bay, local meats and vegetables. The George Tap offers a large range of wine by the glass, including those from vineyards in East Sussex and Kent.

We visited Rye last weekend and after a lovely walk in the beautiful walk in the Rye Harbour reserve we ended up in the George Grill. The restaurant was fully booked but the very friendly waiter found us a nice place in the Pub-section (close to the restaurant). We had a lovely meal and enjoyed the service.

This was in terms of food quality the best meal we had in Rye.

The mussels starter came with perfectly cooked, plump mussels. The Gambas main was delicious; neatly balanced in spice and flavour and carefully shelled.

The steak was also nicely cooked but as a result of the hectic service came without the sauce and had to go back. The chips also came cold and needed to go back.

This was mainly as the staff were actually running to keep up with orders and service. There was no one taking control and as a result mistakes were inevitable including missed sauces and then cold chips.

This may have been due to the Easter weekend but also it needed some proper oversight and management to get the staff organised and not having to run.

The bill at £74 for wine, 2 mains and a starter was good value for the quality of food.

The George Grill is overflowing with character. The whole hotel is buzzing with activity.
The menu and the food are excellent. There is a wide variety of options, nicely presented, and most important - tasty!
The one drawback is the service! The staff are cold and not helpful. I asked questions about the menu which was obviously a nuisance and then the answers I received turned out to be wrong.

My daughter and I ate here on Easter Saturday evening. The restaurant is stylish and comfortable. We shared the chateaubriand, which was served on a wooden board with roasted cherry tomatoes on the vine and onion rings; skinny chips were served in two separate bowls. The meat was perfect: very tender and with a great flavour. We shared a 500ml carafe of red wine - it's good to have that measure available for some of the wines. We also had two excellent desserts. As is usually the case at the George, the service is not as good as the food, resulting in the 4-star rating rather than the 5-star.

We were staying at the hotel and also had dinner here. The food was great, especially the fish dishes they had on the menu but also would recommend the onglet steak - my husband raved about it!
