I regularly visiting while cycling round rye. Best bacon bap ever. Nice staff and a great builders tea get you ready for the cycle Home. Very popular for good reasons.

After a long walk in the Rye Harbour area I was glad to find the Bosun's Bite still open, they close at 3;30 on a Sunday. The hot chocolate and Rocky Road cake restored my energy!

Delicious when it arrived but took almost an hour to be served, if time an issue would check current waiting time when ordering. The upside of this is that all made fresh & really tasty.

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!
