We have had to make a few changes to the way we do things to make our restaurant Covid-safe for YOU and our TEAM

This modern establishment offers an open plan ground floor restaurant, our first floor Restaurant, a Function Suite and a Cookery School
Paul and Rebecca Webbe, Directors, have personally designed and styled Webbes, to suit every need and to enhance the history and style of its beautiful building.

Using recycling collections, and water and fuel saving equipment throughout the building, we endeavour to follow good practices where ever possible. Food waste is recycled for Bio fuel. The Fish Café is fitted with an air conditioning, heating and air filtration system which will efficiently cool/heat. 

We offer our own Rye tap water, which has been filtered and carbonated on site. Zero miles, recycled and re-useable glass bottes.
