Wonderful. As Dandelion seeds propagate by casting there seed to the wind this little flower of a restaurant reputation will undoubtedly spread and grow.
The front of house Jess is a delightful recipe of enthusiasm and ability, which was an overture to some excellent food and service.
The local Romney marsh lamb is a melt in the mouth perfection of flavour as is the Rib eye steak that re-educates taste buds as to how food should taste when prepared by a Chef who knows their craft and is clearly motivated.
From vegetarian starters to main course and deserts this is a must go to restaurant that you will leave not only planning your next visit but a renewed appreciation for the humble Dandelion and good food.

Sightseeing in Rye with no knowledge of the eating places there, we came across the Hope Anchor Hotel and spotted at the front entrance the menu for The Dandelion Restaurant "Moules Mariniere" , a favourite dish of mine so we ventured in. What a great decision! The mussels were perfectly cooked and served, the bread freshly baked and the main of roast beef delicious. We were served by the manager and complimented him on his service and the great restaurant he was running.

The Dandelion Restaurant is linked to the Hope Anchor Hotel at the very top of Rye. It offers a very chic restaurant with a limited but very special menu. Starters included dishes such as pate, soup, moules, or salads while the main courses ranged from ribeye steak and chips, through Romney Marsh lamb and on to Spanish fish stew and vegetarian aubergine and couscous. The desserts were well balanced and delicious (poached pear with sorbet plus many others - yum). Tables are well spaced and the room combines nautical and Italianate design. The view from the windows is stunning. Our waitress was excellent and made a perfect balance between efficient service and responding to the humour of our (affable) group. The chef met our requests to adjustments to the dishes (thin cut steak and gentle spice) and the food was well presented and superb. [This venue is in an old building with many stairs, so not wheelchair friendly]. We have visited before and chose this as our venue for a special dinner with friends after a day in the area. We were not disappointed and will certainly return.
