While wandering through Hastings High Street, the mind set to shopping, one can easily find himself going into a store like AG Hendy & Co Home Store. It sells all sort of "old fashioned" cookery equipment and some bric-a-brac as well. When you do this on a Saturday or a Sunday, one might sniff and think: that is a selling tool - the smell of fresh food.
Getting at the back of the store the surprise is waiting. Inside a small extension, built as if it was there for centuries is a small restaurant. Its menu covers a lot of locally source ingredients, you can sit, watch and eat in the kitchen if you want and the food served is very nice. No interest in a large lunch: just take a starter as a light lunch - the cook is welcoming you anyhow. Everything is decorated as if it were a century ago: enamel cookware, "old" cutlery, glass jugs.
The food is, as said, nice but not cheap. The limited opening times probably steer the price up, exclusivity has to be paid and the risk of having leftovers is probably also influencing the price. However: if you eat here you join a select group of people - those that went to the back of the store and took the chance!
