Enjoyed a lovely lunch and good beer and great having a pub not showing endless football matches and playing music, a real bonus. The only thing that marred our vist was the middle aged local in the corner swearing loudly, Why does he think we all want to listen to his foul mouth.

The first night we arrived in Hastings we ate at FILO with a Tapas night. We were a bit sceptical having had some very ordinary pub meals in other places but were pleasantly surprised with an excellent tasty and filling tapas meal. Great atmosphere in the pub as we drank there on other occasions. Can recommend.

I visit Hastings from my home area in Scotland, roughly, twice a year and always make a point of visiting the FILO. A visit to Hastings would'nt be the same without it. I've always liked the traditional and friendly atmosphere in the pub and have often enjoyed chatting to the owners and staff. The premises have been extended to accomodate... More

We stopped in the FILO for a couple of pints based on recommendation in the CAMRA guide. The beer does not disappoint, but it's the atmosphere that most caught our attention. A civilised eclectic mix of clientele, enjoying food, beer, company etc. Definitely the kind of place where you can settle in for the evening!
