This is a nice old pub in the Old Town, that now has begun doing really nice lunches! I love coming here as I like dim, candle lit pubs, and they even have a log fire in the middle of the room. We come and play cards here with friends. Good beers and ales, also wines are good. Only eaten... More

This is a great traditional pub that has its own brewery on site. Has a enclosed garden at rear. Always have traditional real ale to try.

Not tried the food yet but I will next time. Find it at the top of the High Street in the old town. Worth the... More

The food at the FILO has always been great value for money and a cut above your average Hastings pub grub. Their recently extended dining facilities have now lifted their food to the realms of haute cuisine. It was a pleasure to be able to place our orders and then return to the bar, enjoy a fine pint of crofters... More

The pud is legendary. At the top end of High St. the FILO has long brewed it's own ales to high acclaim. Regular beer festivals too.

My family and I found this pub on the Bank Holiday Monday in May. We had 'googled' for dog friendly pubs and although Trip Advisor stated it was, we still checked within before entering. The staff were more than happy to let us in and throughout the duration of our stay, there was a 'dog convention' under way. At one... More

Found this pub on a visit to Hasting, staff very welcoming. It's a micro brewery and my husband said the beer was great, we had lunch and the food was super definitely a step up from the usual pub grub to be recommended. Try not to be put of by the decor !!

We popped in after it being suggested by bar staff at a local bar! We walked into a warm pub, heated by a lovely open fire! The bar staff we're very friendly. It does feel like a "locals" pub however everyone was nice enough!
