Welcome to the Ypres Castle Inn [known locally as 'The Wipers'].

The pub nestles beneath the ramparts of the Ypres Tower to the south east of the Citadel of Rye - reached by the 1697 Gun Garden steps - and has been looking after locals and visitors since the 1600's.

Rye has a huge number of local food suppliers, not least the Rye Bay fishing fleet which moors within 150m of the pub. As a result, we often have Rye Bay Scallops, Rye Bay Plaice, local crab and John Dory on our seasonal menu. Our lunch and dinner menus changes daily and as a result we can get very busy, so it's worth calling beforehand to guarantee a table.

The Ypres has the only large pub garden in the Citadel, with fantastic views across the Romney Marsh and the local rivers. It makes a great place to watch the sunset and in the summer hosts lots of live events.

On Friday nights, The Wipers hosts live free music. The band usually start at 9.30pm - for full listings see our 'Diary' section.
