We were staying at The George, Rye last summer. We regularly used the Grill and found it to be a lovely place to eat. The food was good, staff were amazing. Will definitely go back.

I went with my daughter & friend for a special New Year's Day lunch. It really was special. The food was beautifully cooked, & the service without fault. I take this opportunity of mentioning the wine waiter or should I call her the 'Sommelier' . Her recommendations were without fault. As my daughter's friend said at the end 'I've not... More

We called by chance on our arrival in the area for Christmas week – and were pleased that a table was available despite the restaurant being very busy. The pre-Christmas atmosphere was jovial and service was friendly, efficient and professional. One of us had the heritage beetroot starter – which was tasty and perfectly cooked with a subtle contrast between... More

A relaxed, comfortable restaurant with friendly staff that creates flavoursome dishes! Loved the chocolate torte with boozy cherries in particular! Would eat here again!

After phoning and booking a table for four I arrived at the restaurant at the agreed time- we were warned in advance the table may be slightly later and we were all fine with that. However, nothing could have prepared me for the attitude and rudeness of the restaurant staff and in particular one female Manager I encountered. Having walked... More

Went for a drink and decided to have something to eat. Perhaps it's me but I am not sure I think it is right to pay 10% 'DISCRETIONARY' service charge when ordering food at the bar especially when the notification on the menu that there is a service charge is in the smallest typeface known to man. Some of our... More

Popped in for a drink on the 29th Dec. Fairly busy but not too bad. Barman was not that interested and his customer service was poor. Couple he was serving asked him a question and he just shrugged his shoulders. They were not impressed. My wife sat at a table whilst I was at bar. Staff very rudely told her... More

Visited the Grill for a meal with friends just before Christmas. We have never been here before, so we were very pleasantly surprised by the design of the Grill room. Excellence in all areas, from the design, furnishings, staff uniforms, and of course the high levels of competence the staff displayed. I had forgotten my glasses which meant I could... More

Description
The George Grill and our bar, The George Tap, are temples of all day dining, serving a modern European menu with a sunny, Mediterranean slant.

At the heart of the kitchen is a Josper wood-charcoal grill, where our kitchen team, led by Robert Wright fast-cook seafood just caught from Rye Bay, local meats and vegetables.

The George Tap offers a large range of wine by the glass, including those from vineyards in East Sussex and Kent.
