2 for 1 at The Devil in Rye

A gem in the Rye dining scene, The Devil in Rye was formed from talented staff from the award-winning Ambrette in Margate to offer locals looking for healthier restaurants in Rye with a relaxed, communal dining experience. Whether guests are dining with family or enjoying a romantic meal for two, it’s sure to be a meal like no other.

The friendly eatery is one of the most central Rye restaurants around. Guests will find it mere steps from Rye Castle Museum, Ypres Tower and the iconic Mermaid Street. With so much on its doorstep, Rye would make a fine place to unwind after exploring Henry James’ former home or the town’s medieval ruins. It’s also a favourite pick for locals too with the train station nearby.

Romantic and serene, The Devil in Rye is one of the best restaurants in Rye for special occasions with that special someone. Diners can enjoy stunning views of the restaurant’s fruit and herb garden and the adjacent 14th century Rye monastery from the comfort of the glass-walled conservatory. Staff are also very helpful and will do their utmost to make it a memorable visit for all diners.

The talented chefs at Rye love cooking with fresh, local produce. This means they can offer their diners seasonal dishes with every visit, which is something not many places to eat in Rye can claim. There’s something for everyone as their menu always includes a variety of meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options. Past dishes have included local seabass with seasonal veg, vegetarian tagine and Kerala-style British beef.

For fresh flavours from around the world, there’s nothing like The Devil in Rye. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to another round of drinks, extra rice or a starter.

Please note: You must book in advance and mention the tastecard to be entitled to the discount.

    The perfect place for a relaxing night out, with a small but delicious menu of original and unusual dishes. My choice of vegetarian street foods, followed by Keralan style beef and a dessert of fruit Baklava was excellent and unexpected. Thoroughly recommended! "

    What a lovely restuarant!

    How it looks inside does not match the outside at all! It is a huge, well-decorated, classy place and the food was fab.
    The waiter who served us was very polite and we mentioned the Tastecard when booking so has no issues in using the card.

    The food was delightful! Two of us ordered the veggie option and two ordered the chicken tagine. The portion sizes were great and everything had wonderful flavour - thanks chef!

    We would definitely recommend going - you won't be disappointed.

    Thank you :) "

    Half the starters were not available and they took ages to take order and when starters were eventually served they were very poor quality and value for
