The Ypres Castle Inn

Gun Garden, RYE, TN31 7HH

The pretty Ypres Castle Inn, known locally as 'The Wipers', sits beneath the castle's ramparts and has been providing hospitality since 1640. As you'd expect with such a long pedigree, the inn's atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the reading room is stocked with an eclectic literary mix and children's games. The bar, featuring the original timber frame of the building, serves Larkins and Harvey's, plus Biddenden cider, all to be savoured around the log fire. From the garden there are magnificent views of Romney Marsh and the River Rother; the Rye Bay fishing fleet moors close by. Light bites include baguettes, ciabattas and bruschettas; popular choices are a cold cured meat platter served with pitta bread, and English lamb hotpot, dumplings and mash. Booking is advisable for the traditional Sunday roasts. The pub hosts live music on Friday nights, Sundays and in the garden in summer.
