A very friendly pub which features an open log fire for those chilly days. Dogs are welcome, which is a godsend. The food is freshly cooked and beautifully presented, using local produce. It's further up the High street but is well worth the walk. The food is excellent quality and the taste stays in the memory. I cannot fault the... More

We went for Sunday lunch and it was like a pub from a tourist film - full to the brim with atmosphere, a cosy central fire and delicious food. And full of locals who should know a good thing when they see it.

This was the first time that I visited this lovely pub in the old town of Hastings. Great atmosphere in a very traditional British pub. Good selection of reasonably priced beers and friendly locals.

Another fun time here with family. The open fire was burning...and venting some of the smoke into the room. Men and women dressed in furs, horns and bells came and drank for 5 minutes...grateful when they left as one was dressed like the dr who scarecrows. Anyway...The pub yet again had a great selection of ale...The staff were as friendly... More

Nice old pub on Hastings High Street, good lunches most days and excellent own brewed beer; highly recommended. Live music some evenings, unusual open hearth fire. Park in the pay and display car park on the Bourne and walk through a small passageway to the High Street which exits alongside the "FILO" as it's known locally.

We had a salt beef sandwich and basil and mozzarella ciabatta with a portion of chips. Really friendly staff and the food, as always, was excellent.

A lovely genuine pub pub! Rare to find these days. Staff are very friendly, attentive and efficient. Older style furniture (in keeping). An unusual log-burning open fire, waist height, at the back of the pub/bar. Really lovely and very efficient - too hot for me to sit beside it! A good selection of beers and wines. Varied menu. Food very... More

Such a welcome sight on a rainy day to be warmly greeted and seating suggested for food service. Toilets immaculate. No wonder place is popular. We on a visit a few years ago found this... More
