Lovely pub with own ales

This place is a micro brewery in its own right and always has a great selection of their own handpull on tap. The food is nice also and some cozy little booths in makes it feel a little more private.

Still haven't been able to try the food. The menu does lol so inviting. Purely a beer trip which is s must for anyone visiting Hastings. You can't go past a light hoppy beer but my favourite is the ginger Tom. Lovely ginger flavour and not too strong. There is a very good range to cover all tastes and palettes.... More

Fantastic and delicious evening meal in the FILO restaurant (located at the back of the pub). Lovely decor with old church pews to sit on which gives a nice private and romantic feel. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. The Rye scallops for starters with different sauces was delicious and I recommend the banana creme brûlée! Definitely be back!

Must declare I have not eaten at FILO but if their food is as impressive as their range of ales then if will be excellent. From the outside this pub does not attract , with rather unclear and unlit sign to show the way and a rather un interesting frontage and lobby, wasted space really. Inside the interior can be...

The last time I visited FILO was over 10 years ago but much has improved. It was always a great pub but the four of us had a very good lunch close to a really warm open log fire - bliss! The owner has an excellent sense of humour and although the 4 meals were slow in coming they were... More

The best pub in Hastings Old Town bar none. Perfect for a summer pint or a winter warmer. Great atmosphere, and phenomenal beer. There are many great pubs in this part of town, but the FILO is like none other.

We had eaten here before, so we thought that we would pop in for lunch, the menu is quite varied and the portions ample, my lunch was perfectly cooked and very well presented, their real ale is very good, it is brewed in their micro brewery nearby. It was a cold day and it was nice to see the fire... More

What a great place to end up on a cold January evening. Wandered in to find an open fire in the middle of the room and mulled wine!
