The Ancient Vicarage Of Rye - Fletchers House
The wonderful historic building which is both home and restaurant has been
carefully restored and combines a traditional setting with a contemporary menu.
An Historical XV century Tudor House, Fletchers House, was the birth place of
John Fletcher, dramatist & collaborater with Beautmount. Born here in 1579 the
son of - John Fletcher, Curate of Rye - later Bishop pf Bristol & Worcester & later
Bishop of London - attended Mary Queen of Scots at her execution. The House
was partly re-fronted in 1701 though the Ancient Vicarage is still in a good State
of Preservation with Beautifull half timbered Oak Rooms"
Sit by the fire on a cold day eating Lee's home cooked food and you won't want to
leave which could be the reason for their resident ghost! The picture of John
Fletcher in their restaurant is a copy of the original in the National Portrait Gallery
which was donated to Pete & Lee after they raised funds via community projects
to keep the picture in the Gallery. See History for more information on Fletchers
House Tea Rooms.
