Fletcher’s House – Rye




You’ll be well-served in this haunted Tudor vicarage with a link to Mary Queen of Scots. If you fancy savoury, you could do worse than try the local crab in a soup or sandwich before a stroll round this wonderful cinque port on the Kent/Sussex border.

Fancy a Cuppa? Book CoverFancy a Cuppa?

Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy. This is not a ’50 best’ tea rooms or cafes guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too.


Crab soups and fresh crab sandwiches; local Kent hop sausages and mash.  Excellent scones, sweet and savoury.  Cream tea for just over a fiver and set tea with sandwiches at just under £10.  One of the rare places in the UK that put dressing on your salad as a matter of course.
