I was persuaded by an enthusiastic friend to join a Roman Archaeological Association group and last weekend we toured ancient Roman sites in Kent and Sussex....Reculver Fort, Richborough Fort, Pevensey Castle, Lympne Caste and the Roman sites in Dover, including the Roman House, Dover Castle and the Pharos Lighthouse up on the clifftop overlooking the port of Dover, with the coast of France clearly visible across the Channel...not a cloud in the sky and it was 26C.

On the Monday we stopped off at Rye, East Sussex,once a port on the Channel coast but now a wee bit inland and bordering onto Romney Marsh.

Rye is an amazingly attractive place and even in these difficult economic times a very affluent town, with lots of narrow cobbled streets, ancient walls and towers around the town centre and plenty of really nice restaurants and tea rooms, including the one where we went to because one of the guys in our group, who was much the oldest among us at 51, wanted to go there for "afternoon tea" which, for £9.95 per head we had a huge pot of tea each, nice big cups, a round of sandwiches, choice of either white or wholemeal or granary bread, choice of fillings (I had fresh salmon with cucumber and salad), a mega huge home-made scone with butter, whipped cream and fresh strawberry jam which the owner of the cafe said was made out of locally grown English strawberries, and then a huge slice of whatever selection of cake we had ordered - I had a thick slice of almond tart similar to Bakewell...all presented on a separate three tier cake stand sort of thing.

In the following YT clip you can catch a glimpse of the tea-rooms, situated in one of the narrow cobbled streets close to the church.

Rye has had a lot of famous people living there, including, among others, Henry James, Spike Milligan and E F Benson, who was twice Mayor of Rye in the 1930s and who wrote the famous Mapp and Lucia books in which the fictional town of Tilling was modelled on Rye itself, and the entire TV series based on these books was filmed in Rye in 1984, so I found out during my visit, whichj I found very interesting. The series featured Prunella Scales, Geraldine McEwan and Nigel Hawthorne.

The Morning Star vegetarian range of products.

Especially their buffalo wings (with ranch as a dipper).

I'm thinking that unless you 'can't' get it, you won't miss it At this moment, I can't think of anything that I would miss, but that's because I can 'get it'

Been there, done that as far as Rye goes, and I would love to go back.


BUT I envy you big time about the Roman Archeological Association. Sigh.

I never found really good Sushi, Mexican or Burgers when I went back to the UK.

Overall I love the food here. Sorry.
