Jonathan’s recent visit to the George in Rye in East Sussex took him on a gourmet tour of the area. In the latest episode of Jonathan’s Journal, Jonathan visits Gusbourne Estate, Camber Sands and Rye Fisheries as well as exploring the town of Rye itself. The team were also lucky enough to try excellent dishes created from locally sourced produce and wines from the extensive wine list at The George Grill Restaurant.
The George in Rye is a 16th century Coaching Inn that reopened in May 2022 following a complete refurbishment. Rye itself is a medieval town, steeped in history and offers the perfect location for a short break. Located just under an hour and a half from London, Rye is full of shopping, great restaurants and even evening entertainment in the likes of The Grapevine wine bar and live music venue. Gusbourne Estate is producing award winning sparkling wines and giving the Champagne houses a run for their money. This area of Kent and East Sussex is considered to have the perfect climate conditions for production of fine sparkling wines and the conditions of Gusbourne with the warm winds blowing in from Camber Sands make it ideal.
