Old Bell Inn33 The Mint
Claimed to be the oldest pub in Rye, this wonderful 15th century building, extended about 200 years later, is located amongst the cobbled streets of Rye. It has a dark wood interior and a bare wooden boarded floor and a small garden at the front. There are two handpumps on the bar counter and a limited food menu. At lunchtime the whole pub is laid for diners, there are signs on the tables 'Diners only 12 to 4' and drinkers are only tolerated if the pub is not busy. In addition often the pub often does not adhere to its published opening hours.
