Just called in here on the off chance of getting some food at around 4pm today (Sunday). My friend just wanted a salad rather than a large meal. The barman checked with the kitchen if this would be available (it was) so she ordered caesar salad & I ordered a standard roast chicken (£6.25). Didn't have long to wait and... More

I was advised to view the restaurant food after a colleague had been here some weeks ago. Considering it was absolutely pouring it down outside we were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door and the pub was extremely busy with a mixture of young and old. Even though there was a discounted menu applicable before 5 p.m. on a... More

The place does not disappoint in any aspect. The decor was very smart, clean and tidy. The serving staff were very friendly and... More

My partner and I popped in for dinner today. 1st time we'd been in. Looked like a nice bar and the staff were really friendly. The menu looked so good, I finally decided on the American meat board and my partner went for the crab and lobster burger. Unfortunately, while we were waiting for our food we witnessed 1 member...

Popped in for Sunday lunch today 9th April and although we hadn't booked a table was found for us. We had excellent starters and a 3 meat large Sunday lunch which was very tasty indeed. Unfortunately we didn't have space for a pudding.

What a great pub. Had the special offer 2 meals for £12 really is good value for money the presentation was excellent . The service was very welcoming and when our server asked if everything was ok with the meal it felt like a genuine question and not just something that he had to say,well done.

We stopped here on the off chance we could get in as we know it is very popular on a Sunday. We found a table in the bar and once again we were not disappointed.

Lunch for 6 - simple wholesome fare. Good and tasty. Service friendly and attentive. Good selection of beers. Some people prefer thinner chips. Overall, we were happy to eat here and would happily return! Well done The Hastings!

The Hastings is a community pub in the heart of Seaton Delaval offering a warm welcome to all who come through our door, whether for a bite to eat, a quiet drink after work, to enjoy our quiz nights or watch live music.

Our food offer is fresh, with much of it locally sourced and we pride ourselves on the quality and value. We have recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, and relaunched with a new Head Chef and exciting menu. Whether it is our Wagyu Steak Mince Burgers, Mussels, Belly Pork, our Fish, Grill and Salad Ranges or simply a Bowl Of Homemade Chips, there is something for most tastes

Our tagline of 'Local Pub, Local Food, Local Prices' sums up our aim to provide fresh affordable food without compromising on quality.

Currently on a Wednesday we run a popular fun quiz night, with cash prizes up for grabs. On Friday's we have live music band nights and solos, acoustics and duos on a Sunday evening.
