We came today and had a great lunch, I had the squid and muscles.. amazing! As always! My other half had the deep fried brie and scampi and he loved that, our daughter had the mix seafood meal and got to try some seafood she...hadn't eaten before and also loved it! The service was great too.. thanks Tyler, Lula and Beth! Looking forward to our next visit! Definitely the best place in Hastings for seafood! (Also you have to try the pork belly too..my usual when I'm in there! However today's deviation didn't disappoint).. Thanks Whites! :)More

What a find. Originally intended the Thai opposite. Staff are not just friendly but very knowledgeable. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced, if you are in the Old Town then this is a must try. 10 out of 10

Yet again the waiting team - Beth, Tyler and Lula are providing us with excellent service - they are clearly a great team. White's has become my 97 year old mum's favourite restaurant since she moved to the fabulous Old Hastings House (review pending). We've...visited 3 times now. We always feel very looked after, plus the produce is high quality and cooked from scratch. Woz and his team in the kitchen always adjust things to cater for my mum's dietary need. And it's always delicious. This is a great restaurant, ticking all the boxes.More

Popped in for lunch by recommendation from my daughter who works here and did not expect to have to be carried out by a crane.... I have cancelled next week's food shop for this hearty feast will keep me full and satisfied for weeks to...come! I had the chicken skewers and hid in embarrassment when they arrived as immediately thought that I had mistakenly ordered a sharing platter for 8 people, no, turns out they just want to fatten me up ! Talk about value for money! The entire meal was delicious, staff ( Lula , Tyler, Beth, Tabby, Warren and Andy ) lovely and they seem fine with me needing to move in until I lose enough weight to fit back through the door.....win win ❤More

Definitely recommend the 1kg of mussels. Very, very tasty. The whitebait was also the real deal, not the crappy deep-fried stuff you get in other places. Unfortunately, the fish wasn't that great. We had the plaice and sea bass, and they tasted a bit bland.

Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Beth our waitress was brilliant. Couldn’t have asked for more. We had mussels and skate and it was well cooked and very tasty. We will be back again.

We had a four night stay in Hastings and if we had found whites on the first night we would have been back every night. Excellent food, good service and very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Visited on bank holiday Monday and had THE best meal. The staff were so helpful and friendly, even when we changed our mind and asked to sit outside instead of where we were sat inside. Delicious food and lovely atmosphere. We will be back.

Best food I’ve ever eaten, made even better by the exceptional service by both Tyler and Lula, made the evening an absolute treat. Would recommend to anyone looking for a light bite or an evening meal for 2 or even group bookings. Everything very well...presented and clean: great food, great wine, great vibes. 10/10More
