Home Cooked

Quality FOOD

Fletcher’s house tea room & Restaurant

You will receive a warm welcome at Fletcher’s House, which is situated right in front of St Mary’s Church in the Citadel of Rye and was once home to Jacobean playwright John Fletcher. Sit by glowing log fires in the winter or enjoy the attractive terrace garden in the summer – away from the bustle of the town.

Fletcher’s House is a vibrant meeting place for locals, an essential stopping place for tourists and a sought after venue for group teas, celebrations and business meetings. Pete Anderson and Lee Ransom, who started
Fletchers in 2007 will ensure that you will want to return.

Fletcher’s House offer an extensive menu of home cooked food, including vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options. You won’t be able to resist the delicious sweet and savoury scones and home made cakes. But Fletcher’s is much more than a Tea Room. An excellent wine list is available so you can choose a glass of wine to accompany your lunch or Sunday roast. For non drinkers, try the delicious fruit juices from local farms.  

Lunches – light lunches or cooked meals

We offer good home cooked, well presented food with most lunch dishes priced under £10. Our portions are generous and include fresh seasonal vegetables or salads. We source our food locally if at all possible.

Our light lunches include freshly made sandwiches or home made soups with a savoury scone or for those with a larger appetite our full lunch menu offers a choice of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes which change daily – see our Daily Specials and Main Menus as a guide to the type of dishes we offer.

Sunday Roasts

Sunday Roasts are available every other week all year round. Please ring to enquire what Sunday it is on and to book a table as they are very popular (01797 222227). They include a choice of roast meats, roast potatoes, fresh vegetables and home made gravy. Our meals are not mass produced or kept warm – but freshly cooked so be sure to book as the number of meals we serve is limited. 

Fletcher Set Teas

Don’t miss a Fletcher Set Tea, served in true traditional English style on an antique cake stand. Teas include home made cakes, scones, sandwiches and a pot of tea. Perhaps you would prefer a cream tea with home made scones, prepared and baked on the premises each day, and served with cream and jams. Delicious!
