You's Chinese Restaurant, 24 Grosvenor Crescent, St Leonards-on-Sea TN38 OAA 01424 436888 Rock-a-Nore Fisheries: There have been Hastings fishermen and fishmongers in their family since the 1800s, including such evocatively named local legends as Spreader Benton, Hardy Fullager, Dickie Gannon and Lizzie Rich. Their grandma Polly Gannon used to push a fish cart seven miles from Hastings to Bexhill and back again every day before their parents Albert & Lilly set up Rock-a-Nore Fisheries some 30 years ago. Today, Rock-a-Nore Fisheries is still a family business, and Sonny's brother, sister and aunt all work in the shop - and Albert, now 79, still makes their delicious smoked chilli jelly. Trained as a chef in London's famous Brown's hotel during the war, Albert has always been a great experimenter with food - he invented their secret smoked salmon cure decades ago, and have never changed it since.

Tel No: 01424 427000 The Mermaid Inn, Mermaid Street, Rye Tel: 01797 223065 – Recommended by The Good Pub Guide 2007: “The sign outside this lovely black and white timbered hotel says ‘rebuilt in 1420’, though the cellars are two or three centuries older than that. It’s extremely civilised with prices to match, and the little bar is where those in search of a light lunch and a drink tend to head for: quite a mix of quite closely set furnishings such as Victorian gothic carved oak chairs, older but plainer oak seats, and a massive deeply polished bressumer beam across one wall for the huge inglenook fireplace. Three antique but not ancient wall paintings show old English scenes. Well kept Courage Best and Greene King Old Speckled Hen on handpump, a good wine list, and a short choice of bar food such as sandwiches (from £6), open goats cheese and spinach omelette or moules marinière (£8.50), minute steak with blue cheese salad (£10.50), seafood platter for two (£29), and puddings (£6). The smart (expensive) restaurant is no smoking; piped music (bar only), dominoes and cribbage. Seats on a small back terrace overlook the car park - where there are morris dancers on bank holiday weekends.” www.mermaidinn.com Landgate Bistro, 5-6 Landgate, Rye Tel: 0871 426 5566 - Recommended by The Mobile Food Guide Report: “http://www.themobilefoodguide.com/select/images11478.phpStanding by one of the ancient fortified gateways leading into the heritage honeypot town of Rye is the long-serving and much admired Landgate Bistro. Over the years, this immensely likeable restaurant has established a reputation for honest, classy food based emphatically around local ingredients. New owners Nilla Westin and head chef Martin Peacock are continuing enthusiastically where their predecessors left off, and procure most of their culinary raw materials from the fields, woodlands and waters of Sussex and neighbouring Kent; local farms provide free-range eggs and dairy products and even the bottled water is from nearby springs. The result is a repertoire of classic and modern British food that could take in turbot and salt cod fishcakes, slow-roast belly of pork and poached lemon sole with white wine and fresh tarragon - not forgetting excellent Romney Marsh lamb. Puddings, ice creams and sorbets are made in-house and there's always a zesty lemon tart and classic trifle on offer.” www.landgatebistro.co.uk Ypres Castle Inn, Church Square, Rye Tel: 01797 223248 - Recommended by The Good Pub Guide 2007: “Lots of space, wooden tables on bare boards, Harveys and Youngs, usual food at reasonable prices.” The Union Inn, East Street, Rye Tel: 01797 222334 – Recommended by The Good Pub Guide 2007: “Attractive beamed pub with newish licensees doing enjoyable fresh home-made food, Harveys ale, good atmosphere; children welcome.” www.unioninnrye.co.uk Old Bell, 33 High Street, Rye Tel: 01797 223323 – Recommended by The Good Pub Guide 2007: “Ancient beamed and panelled two-room pub with old prints and photographs, good service, real ales, decent coffee, good value food, no smoking area; small garden with lovely wisteria.” Ship, Strand Quay, Rye Tel: 01797 222233 – Recommended by The Good Pub Guide 2007: “Lots of space, wooden tables on bare boards, Harveys and Youngs, usual food at reasonable prices.” The White Vine House, 24 High Street, Rye Tel: 01797 224748- Recommended by guests. Restaurant open for dinner Wednesday to Sunday. Light lunches served all week. A beautiful building originally dating from 1560, it was restored in 2005 and some stunning Elizabethan oak panelling revealed. www.whitevinehouse.co.uk The Woolpack Inn, Brookland Tel: 01797 344321 – Recommended by the AA Guide. “Smugglers' tales abound at this remote 15th-century inn surrounded by dykes and reed beds: an old spinning wheel, used to divide up smuggling contraband, can still be seen mounted from the ceiling. The place oozes charm and character, with open beams and an inglenook fireplace adding to the atmosphere. Wholesome home-made pub food includes snacks and hearty meals such as whole partridge in a red wine and cream sauce; cod and chips; and home-made chilli. Children's play area. Garden. Dogs welcome.

W: www.the-white-dog-inn.co.uk The Curlew: In a previous life, The Curlew Restaurant at Bodiam, East Sussex was a Coaching Inn where travellers rested their weary, moustachioed heads and warmed their spirits while on rain-sodden route from Hastings to London. But now, Mark and Sara Colley have given The Curlew another life. Just an errant arrow flight from Hastings, stone skim from Bodiam Castle, mince from Brighton, manicured lawn from Tunbridge Wells, The Curlew is a place where formal food meets informal dining, where the city and country brush shoulders, style meets stile.

About Walking

About History
East Sussex is part of the ancient kingdom of the South Saxons who established themselves during the 5th Century AD after the departure of the Romans. The area had been populated for many thousands of years before then. There is an abundance of archaeological remains, especially in the upland areas. The area's position on the coast has also meant that there were a number of invaders, those of which included the Romans and later the Normans. From a geological point of view East Sussex is part of the southern anticline of the Weald. The South Downs, a range of moderate chalk hills which run across the southern part of the county from west to east and which are mirrored in Kent by the North Downs. To the north lie parallel valleys and ridges, the highest of which is the Weald itself. Over a thousand years of history have formed the county of East Sussex with its green fields having been the sites of many great battles. East Sussex is studded with castles. Hastings Castle was built in 1066 straight after the invasion on top of the cliff that now overlooks Hastings Old Town. It was rebuilt in stone in 1070 as the first permanent Norman castle in the country. Pevensey Castle is four miles north-east of Eastbourne. William the Conqueror seized the Roman fort at Pevensey after beating the English at the Battle of Hastings. Bodium Castle north of Hastings, was built in the 14th century, one of the few examples of a castle built for a private citizen. Incapable of being defended against cannon fire, it surrendered when attacked. The Parliamentarians were ordered to dismantle it, so it remained a ruin until partially restored in the 19th century. In 1917 Lord Curzon purchased and restored the castle. It is now owned by the National Trust. Earlier industries have included fishing, iron-making, and the wool trade, all of which have since fell into decline. Today, with the main towns being popular seaside resorts, East Sussex's main industry is the tourist trade. There are wide open spaces from the beaches and cliff tops of the coast to the chalk hills and meadows of the South Downs. There are narrow cobbled alleyways and elegant Regency squares, along with medieval cottages and fairytale castles. The mixture of glorious gardens, picturesque old villages, stylish bars and restaurants and fun nightlife are what makes East Sussex such a special place. It is here where you can relive a Norman battle, visit an Indian-style royal palace, go llama trekking, find a 69m long chalk man on a hillside and dine on a 1920's Golden Arrow steam train, and all in the space of a day. East Sussex is a fascinating mix of sleek city pleasures, laid-back beach life and unspoilt countryside. It is historic, wild and sophisticated, exotic and traditional, all at the same time.
