“Fantastic food at a great price!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

I had their Chili con carne burger and my girlfriend had the Tennessee burger. The burgers were hand made that morning and the mince was clearly of very high quality. They came with a generous helping of fresh salad and I had the chunky hand cut chips fried to perfection. They came out the kitchen in less than 10 minutes despite the bar being busy and the staff were warm and friendly. I heartily recommend this bar to anyone!

“well worth the walk......”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Having lived in the town for some time now we tend to frequent a few choice establishments when we venture out for a nibble.So when I suggest JD bistro in Claremont because of reviews on this website the girls were a bit wary as it meant walking away from the centre of town out of there comfort zone,Anyway the walk was worth it.From the outside it is quite unassuming but on entry we were warmly greeted by Sue and John.Drinks were ordered and we perused the menu which comprises of a set menu and the daily specials which were displayed on a chalkboard on the bar wall. The girls had squid rings for starters and the mains were Duck in cherry sauce new potatoes and veg for Paula Pan fried trout and sweetcorn dressing and salad for Leslie (with home-made chips as a side) while I plumped for the home made pie of the day which was Steak and Red wine sauce with mash.What followed was to be a meal to die for,the starters came and to be fair it was big enough to be a main !!!! Freshly battered squid in a home-made batter with salad and lemon and black pepper mayonnaise.
The mains were no disappointment either.My steak pie was stuffed full of meat and the mash was soft and creamy.Leslie had to leave some of her fish as there was so much. Her chips well only Mary my sister in law can cook better chips than this they were that close to hers.
Paula had a grin on her face all afternoon after her duck normally she has it with plum sauce but says she now prefers the cherry after today

In summing up this is was a great meal we will definitely be taking the walk again...Sunday roast beckons........

“Best value for money, home cooked food in hastings.”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Very friendly, excellent service, great choice of food and drinks. This is the most under exposed restaurant in hastings with great home cooked food at a price that is not beaten!
Try the Sunday carvers or the best breakfast in hastings
