Popular home-from-home in the old town

Bar menu
Open all year
Dog friendly

A relaxed ambience is the keynote here, with daily papers, open fires and board games for all the family; dogs are welcome too. Yet there’s entertainment if you want it – The Crown hosts quiz nights, craft evenings, storytelling and exhibitions. The drinks choice embraces teas and coffees as well as Sussex ales, ciders and gins. Honestly-priced dishes are home-cooked from traceable sources – organic meat from Winchelsea, local fish and vegetables from Rye. Romney Marsh lamb with stuffing and creamed leeks, followed by cobnut Bakewell tart and poached pears will set you up for a nice cliff-top walk.
