The Runcible Spoon
62 Cinque Ports Street, Rye East Sussex
‘They dined on mince and slices of quince/which they ate from a runcible spoon.’ This piece of nonsense from Edward Lear’s psychofantasia The Owl and the Pussycat takes us no nearer to knowing what a runcible spoon is. However, you can mull it over in the Lear-themed surrounds of this quirky little café. With its pine tables and cheese and onion sandwiches it doesn’t win any prizes for style, but it’s a charmingly offbeat little place nonetheless and the food really hits the spot. A simple establishment that wins you over by providing what you need; hearty meals without any bells or whistles.
