NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Under this stage of the roadmap in England pubs can only open outdoor areas and many will only be open for customers who have pre-booked. Alcohol can now also be sold for takeaway, as well as delivery.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


Updates

The beer garden will re-open for drinks from Thursday 15th April. At first, we’ll be serving from 12 noon until dusk, Thursday to Sunday only (closed Mon-Weds).
On persistently rainy days we’ll have to close, although each of our tables is equipped with a 3 metre wide parasol to fend off any showers.
We won’t be taking table bookings, and won’t be operating as a restaurant (the kitchen will remain closed for now). Just turn up in groups of 6 or fewer, be ready to check in for track & trace, and then enjoy great drinks served to your table.

About the Pub

An attractive weather-boarded pub built in 1640 with fantastic views across Romney Marsh, the outside drinking areas include part of the top of the town ramparts. An atmospheric location particularly at night, it is accessible from the steps adjacent to the ramparts of the Ypres Tower. Known locally as 'The Wipers' there is one large bar with an open log fire and an adjoining room plus a large garden with 22 tables. The house beer from Rother Valley Brewery is Ypres Castle Bitter with ABV 3.8%. The keg taps are devoted to keykeg and other craft ales, Bedlam Pilsner from Plumpton Green, East Sussex and Rothaus Pils from Germany. The menu usually includes locally sourced seafood. Real cider and perry is from Nightingale Cider Company, a few miles away in Tenterden, over the Kent border. The pub has an annual short closure in January. Quality bar snacks are offered alongside a simple menu centred around gourmet sandwiches.
