Sussex by the Season ®


Welcome to our trug-full of three contemporary restaurants, and a Cookery School, in three fantastic East Sussex locations - Rye, Hastings Old Town and the village of Westfield.

Paul and Rebecca Webbe, opened The Wild Mushroom Restaurant in 1998, inspired by our love of foraging wild food and the outstanding natural ingredients on our doorstep such as Rye Bay Scallops and the sustainable fish and shellfish of the Hastings eco friendly fleet's daily catch.

In 2004 we opened Webbe's at the Fish Cafe in Rye, a family friendly restaurant offering the freshest local fish from the local ports, with an open plan kitchen so you may watch all of the action.

In 2009 we added Webbe's Rock-a-Nore to our family, situated almost on the beach, opposite the net huts and small boats of the Hastings fishing fleet in the Old Town, Hastings. 

Also Webbe's Cookery School where you can enjoy learning a variety of cooking experiences under Paul Webbes' careful supervision and calm tuition.

"Sussex by the Season"® is the philosophy behind all of our food. Each Webbe's restaurant is unique in design and the type of experience it offers, the pricing and menus which change throughout the year with the seasons, so you can enjoy trying each one!
