We enjoy a traditional fish & chip lunch, washed down with a cup of tea or coffee, in surroundings that hark back to the smuggling days of Romney Marsh, before continuing attractive, hill-top town of Rye, a former trading port and smugglers haunt, with its timbered houses, specialty shops, tearooms and restaurants
