We parked near this cafe in a FREE car park. Yes a big car park that was actually free. Saw a sign for a cafe. What a lovely find. I'm a fussy veggie. I had lots of choice (which trust me is still a rarity)...More

With water pistols on the table outside to deter the gulls, and an extensive cafe style menu, this is the place to fill up on well prepared food. It gets busy, so be prepared for a possible wait. Free parking just a stroll away. If...More

Far too expensive £5.00 for tuna mayo! I know it's summer season but price hike is ridiculous. Much cheaper in winter!! Ended up having a £3.00 burger.

After a long walk around the nature reserve we tried the Bosun's Bite for a late lunch and were very pleased we had. Excellent, friendly service and a really good choice from snack to full meal at reasonable prices. We will be back!

We were staying at a campsite and thought we'd get up and go straight out. We called into Bosun's Bite on our way birdwatching and weren't disappointed. Warm welcome and lovely filling breakfast which kept us going nearly all way around the 10 mile walk....More

We are a family run business, set in the tranquil setting of Rye Harbour, situated opposite the Lifeboat house. We are adjacent to the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and River Rother and a short stroll from the beach.We are open 364 days a year (take Christmas day off and cook at home instead!), and are open from 9am til 3ish!We take pride in using only the finest ingredients,locally sourced wherever possible,free range,cook every order from fresh and only serve door-stops of the best bread!We are bike friendly, dog friendly,child friendly and customers with specific diets are welcome to bring their own food (we don't cater specifically for gluten free etc,yet).There is loads and loads of FREE parking,a rarity these days!Please don't park in the Lifeboat bays, if there is a shout you could get boxed in for hours! If there is a shout, please bear with me as the family are all on the crew and there's little staff left to look after all the customers! but you will see the boat in action. Catch us when we're quiet and we can give you a personal tour of the station!Donations to the RNLI are always welcome!
