“Avoid this dump”
Review of West Hill Cafe

Reviewed 26 October 2013

Rude, unobliging, miserable service in this dump. A food hygiene score of only 3 is not good enough and this place doesn’t deserve its custom. There are much better places in town, or buy some decent baked goods from Judge’s Bakery and enjoy a picnic up on West Hill instead.

We fell into the trap of being at the top of the cliff and thinking what a great place to eat dinner.

A one course meal for a child and two adults (with a drink each) over £30.
The food was not nice, it was swimming in grease or under cooked!

We needed to use a highchair for our child and the selection was only old, greasy and broken ones! Not safe!

The views from here are super and there is plenty of seating, though not as much outside as you might expect.
A lot of the food is described as home made, however, whilst waiting to order I noticed film in he tops of ready meals being pierced prior to microwaving. I had soup of the day that was very nice and not bad value.
The cafe really does need a bit of a freshen up and perhaps a less extensive menu to avoid the long queues at busy times.

Whilst visiting the cliff tips this cafe is a must there is such a wide selection of food and drinks on offer there is something for everyone. The cafe is nice and clean and the outdoor seating offers fantastic views over Hastings and the seafront. A nice place to relax.
