Day time visit, we had the bar to ourselves at first, but were joined by another couple later on. We enjoyed the excellent views across Rye.

Mid afternoon busy with a couple of other groups in for this small but perfectly formed 'as they should be' hotel bar. Friendly banter aided by the classic hotel barman made for an extended enjoyable stay.

Popped in for a quick one with Magnus of this site, well four pints later we were still here. A most enjoyable visit with proper locals and a great character behind the bar who has worked there for over twenty years.

We were walking past and had some time so we sat out the front and enjoyed the view as the sun went down. The hotel has a small and cosy public bar.
Old Dairy - Red Top3.80AcceptableI have a feeling this was teetering on the edge of turning as there was a faint hint of vinegar. Still, it was pleasant enough for me to finish
