Dropped in for a casual meal on a Tuesday evening. Stayed until closing. What an absolute joy. Great food. Fantastic staff. And a folk music night to top it off. This is what a British pub should be. I may even move to Hastings!More

I'm so sorry but we don't offer cash back at the pub? Maybe you're confusing us with someone else? Best, Nic.

Lovely little pub in the old town of Hastings, friend staff, good selection of Ales and Gins and a great Sunday Roast! Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Hi Peter. Thanks for reviewing us. Aren't we lucky in Hastings to have so many events throughout the year? It gives us so many chances to dress up behind the bar!

I'm afraid not. It's a 16th century building so it's very difficult to get planning permission to change the external structure. There are a flight of steps leading up to the front door which are not wheelchair friendly... More

A small, friendly, 16th century inn with separate dining room, log burning stoves and landscaped gardens. Our chef is from Bali so our menus all have a hugely popular Balinese twist. We have a regular Monday night quiz, live Folk music on Tuesday evenings , live Bluegrass music on Wednesday evenings and Acappella folk on Thursday evenings, plus occasional bands. Please see our 'events' section on our website or our Facebook page or follow us on Instagram for more details. We'd love you to visit our lovely old pub. Nic. x
