Review on The George in Rye

A dazzling transformation has taken place at The George in Rye an historic coaching inn (circa 1575), thanks to a new team who have turned it into a stylish boutique hotel. Over the centuries, the building has seen several additions including a Georgian ballroom, a banqueting room that was once Rye's Masonic Lodge and a bar built of beams taken from ships. The new design shows a sharp eye for period detail, with contemporary fabrics and bespoke furniture adding style to the interior.

During the day, visitors can eat in the bar or the dining room from a light menu of homemade venison burgers, mezze with flat bread, goujons of plaice, cheese platters and charcuterie.

In the evening, the restaurant comes into its own: here you might find starters of char-grilled squid with harissa sauce and rocket or home-smoked duck breast with walnuts and mustard dressing before char-grilled Romney Marsh lamb with 'patatas a los pobres' and watercress or roast skate with flageolet beans, crispy capers and paprika. To finish, desserts keep it simple with - say - sticky toffee pudding or chocolate, almond and Armagnac cake. The wine list includes a few representatives from vineyards in Kent and Sussex.
